Windows 7: Very strange error on Outlook 2003

09 Dec 2010   #11
Kari

 

As I mentioned before, I had luck. I have three latest versions of Outlook (2003, 2007, 2010), installed on three latest versions of Windows (XP, Vista, Seven), and I have absolutely no problems in using three different types of Hotmail accounts (@live, @msn, @hotmail) on all of them using POP3 instead of IMAP.

The settings on every system, every Outlook version as shown on those screenshots above.

I can not reproduce your problem. I have absolutely not a faintest clue why it is not working for you.

There appears to be a resolution to an identical problem in the following link...

Task 'Hotmail - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC7D) : 'Your outgoing (SMTP) server does not support SSL-secured connections. If SSL-secured connections have worked in the past, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Quote:
Outlook connector configures the account as MAPI and doesnít require POP settings.
Remove the Hotmail account configured as POP and then download the latest version of Outlook connector from the download link below:
Download details: Outlook Hotmail Connector 32-bit

For more information on how to configure Outlook connector click Use a Windows Live Hotmail account in Outlook - Outlook - Microsoft Office

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Hotmail connector only allow you to configure Hotmail as IMAP account?

It would seem so from the quote in my previous post. The problem in the link is identical to that which No Expert is experiencing.
I do not personally have a Hotmail account, so if you have hands-on knowledge then your experience would be more beneficial.

That's the problem, Irene I have experience as a user who has no problems. Other than telling how my settings are, it seems I'm unable to help the OP.

OK, some additional information. I installed Outlook Connector and then added the email address as IMAP which works fine but... only if you make the hotmail address as the default address in Outlook (apparently this is a "feature" of Connector). But because I have another address as my main address then this arrangement will simply not work. Therefore, Outlook Connector has been unistalled, my hotmail address closed and switched to another provider. So that's the "solution"...

Sorry to hear that. Main thing is you have something that works for you.

hi!

I am having the exact same problem with SSL email on ports 587/995. Double checked config. Everything exactly as supposed to be. I am an IT guy, used Outlook for 15+ years, and can't see any problem with this. Removed antivirus, no filtering in place. It works fine on an XP with Outlook 2003 and an XP with Outlook 2000 on the same network, but NOT on Outlook 2003 (latest SP3) on Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

Did you figure this out?

Once, I got warned by Outlook that there was a security issue with the server, and to say ok. Unfortunately, as I was typing stuff, I don't know if it ever took Y or N. Where would I go to clean up any certificate associated with the email domain names ?

Also, at the same time, I get SCHANNEL errors in Event Viewer/System: The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 10.

Thanks!

I'm "glad" I'm not the old one with this issue. The "solution" is to install Outlook Connector BUT then you have to use your Hotmail / Live address as the default one. However, you may be able to configure it as POP3 possibly (i.e. outside Connector).

Have you found an answer for this issue? I am experiencing similar problems with Outlook 2003 running on XP SP3. For me, this has been an intermittent issue going on for a long while.

It began last year, sometimes it would send mail through my Hotmail account, other times I would get the error message. After doing some research, I concluded it may be Norton AV and I disables the email scanning. It seemed to work for a few days, but then it would stop sending. I recently upgraded to the newest version of Norton, and then I thought the problem was fixed because it worked for at least a week, but the issue has returned.

Sometimes on a reboot it works for a little while and then it fails again. It is frustrating. I have my settings as described above and still nothing.

Bear in mind, I can always receive mail, and I have no problems sending mail through this account through my WIN7 machine running Thunderbird, and through my Android phone running GMAIL and K9.

Any help would be appreciated!
