which I ignored after reading the thread.
Since then OE has been playing up. I can send and receive my btinternet account mail, but it takes several tries before Hotmail can be read or sent, and today not at all. I get the following error messages:
Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: '', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 12007, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D
An error message also comes up from the BT broadband help centre, although the Bt mail is getting in and out.
As far as I know I have not done anything to alter the accounts. Some time ago I got a message from Hotmail to say that new customers would have to pay to access the mail via OE, but existing customers could continue without paying. I have been accessing Hotmail via OE for some years, and have had no notification that I might be cut off.
I can still access Hotmail directly without involving OE.
Anybody any ideas as to what is happening?
Thanks to you all.
