Outlook 2010 Hotmail Social Connector: Invalid user name or password

Hi Guys, I am having a problem with Hotmail connector. First the data: Windows 7 64bit - Office 2010 32bit, both are up to date, including last social connector update. Linkedin connector works flawlessly but when in the people pane I try to connect to my main hotmail account (the one I use for chat) I get the following error:
"Invalid user name or password"
I guess user name is my hotmail e-mail address and password must be the same as the hotmail password. @least for the linkedin connector it is that way.
I have 12 mail accounts in my outook setup, incluiding 2 hotmail accounts. I am using pop to download all accounts, including the hotmails.


Please any Ideas ????????

If you have two hotmail accounts it would seem that the outlook hotmail connector is linked to just one of the hotmail accounts you have set up on outlook. Might be wrong about this but seems logical. I use the connector to get my hotmail to outlook with pop3. However I only have "one" hotmail account associated with outlook. Maybe you could delete one of the hotmail accounts from your outlook and see what happens.

It could be the new hotmail. I had to update my email checker. Just gave it time and see if an update comes out.

mmmm, I tried to connect to both hotmails. Both gave the same error. Will try deleting one account later and will be back with the info.
But I think this is still buggy ...
Hotmail works ok, and messenger also ... the social connector must be the "buggy" one ... maybe ...
THANKS guys. Will keep you posted
