Windows Live Mail 2011 won't send receive

I updated from Windows Live Mail 2010 to 2011 and i can no longer connect to my hotmail account. I keep getting error message 0x80048820. i have tried reseting my password and deleting the account multiple times. I also changed to the POP server and it downloaded my inbox but would not sync with the rest of the account. my g-mail account is working fine. Any suggestion?

Make sure that your incoming mail server is and your outgoing mail server is and you've got a checkmark in the box that your mail server requires authentication. Plus it should be POP3 server. Hope this helps.

No it did not work. It wont even connect to the inbox with these settings. I also want it to be able to download my folders to windows live. Is that possible with pop servers?

OK. Keep those settings and go back to Accounts and then Properties. Under General be sure your email address is in and a check mark in "include this account......etc. Next, go to the Advanced tab, make sure there are check marks in both the "this server requires a secure.......". Now make sure the values in the port boxes are incoming 995 and outgoing 25 and click apply. I'm afraid I don't know any way to download folders. If all else fails, contact your ISP and they'll guide you through it. Let me know how you did. :)

A few suggestions based on google search for error number:

Close WLM;
Ensure pc date and time are correct;
Delete all live, hotmail, and cookies;
If present disable third party firewall, enable Windows Firewall.

Open WLM;
Remove the account in WLM;
Recreate new with your full username and domain(e.g. If your account is a or use that domain instead of, ensure the correct password is entered and the box checked to remember the pw.

Change your MTU under Vista or Windows 7

the instructions are simple the only thing to remember is once you have found your new MTU setting reboot the computer.
