Many people will tell you to check in your internet option and blablabla but this is a fix for "Error ID: 0x80048849" and not for the "Error ID: 0x80048820".
Most of the support team don't take care of the two last number this is why there is no solution.
Now Follow the next step there will be the Bypass.
1) Open Live Mail
2) delete the existing account.
3) add new account, and check the "manually configure" option
4) set the connection settings to:
Incoming server name:
Incoming server port: 995
Outgoing server name:
Outgoing server port: 25
Requires SSL Yes
Requires outgoing authentication Yes
Now your mail should sync without any error.
If I'm not wrong by now the POP service is enable by default and can't be Disable on Hotmail option but you can allow the program to control your mailbox just like the previous automatic setup was doing.
Have an nice day!
One of the advantages of using Windows Live Mail (aka WLM, the email client, not the web page) is the contact synchronization. So while you can set up pop/smtp to receive/send mail, respectively, it doesn't help with contact or calendar sync.

That said, I'm currently experiencing this error:
Server Error: 0x80048820
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80048820

I wonder if Microsoft has just decided to brake WLM to force us to do some sort of so-called "upgrade". Anyone else having this problem with accessing the DeltaSync server?

After a few days, it looks like the DeltaSync server got rebooted and it's fixed!

windows live mail not accessing hotmail error 0x80048820

I was having this issue for the last month or so (I didn't want to set up a pop3 account). Looks like different options have worked for other people, but none of them seemed to work for me. I experimented on my own and finally got something to work. Figured I'd share my solution if anyone else in the future has this problem.

1.Access "Internet Options" (you can do this through the control panel or under "Tools" in Internet Explorer)
2.Click on the "Advanced" tab and scroll down to the Security settings.
3.Enable SSL (I already had SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 enabled on my machine)
4.Enable TLS (this was the only change i did and it worked. I had the option for TLS 1.0 on my problem machine but enable the others if they are available too)

Hope this is of help to someone.
