Free Hotmail is no longer accessable with Outlook Express.


"After you configure Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express to access your MSN
(The Microsoft Network) Hotmail account, you receive the following error message when you try to download your Hotmail folders and when you try to send and receive e-mail messages:If you click Details, the following text appears in the error details:
HTTPMAIL: 10:09:18 [rx]

HTTP/1.1 402 Access to Hotmail via Outlook & Outlook Express now requires a subscription. Please sign up at http://upgrade.msn.com
If you are running Outlook Express on a Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based computer, you receive the following error message:
Could not connect to Hotmail as username@hotmail.com.

Hotmail no longer allows email access via Outlook Express for free Hotmail/MSN accounts.
Back to the top

CAUSE
This behavior occurs if the following conditions are true: You configured Outlook Express to access a free Hotmail account.
Your Hotmail account has never been accessed by Microsoft Outlook or by Outlook Express.
MSN Hotmail no longer supports Distributed Authoring and Versioning (DAV) for free user accounts. Outlook Express uses the DAV interface to connect to Hotmail. Only paid Hotmail accounts will work correctly with Outlook Express. If you configured Outlook Express or Outlook to access your Hotmail account before DAV support was ended, you may still be able to use Outlook Express to open a free Hotmail account. However, eventually Hotmail will no longer support DAV for all free Hotmail accounts.
Back to the top

RESOLUTION
If you want to use Outlook Express to access your Hotmail account, you must have an MSN subscription. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://upgrade.msn.com
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;878462

You can always get your grandfather a Gmail account, which is larger than hotmail, is free, and works with Outlook Express as well as Thunderbird.
I am sure if you walked him through the screens, he would have not problem using it.

Or download EPrompter for him:

"ePrompter is an easy to use email notifier that automatically checks up to sixteen password protected email accounts for AOL , AltaVista, Earthlink, Email.com, Go.com, Hotmail, Juno, Lycos, Mail.com, Mindspring, MSN, Netscape, OneBox, POP3, Rediffmail, USA, Yahoo and hundreds of other email domains - all at the same time.
ePrompter features a unique rotating tray icon, and a choice of four unique screensavers that let you know at a glance the number of new messages in each account, which you can easily read and/or delete online or offline with the click of an icon.

And now ePrompter allows you to compose, forward and reply to the messages that have been retrieved for you. Your forwards and replies will be sent back through the account that the messages were retrieved from. Your original messages can be sent through any account that you have working on your ePrompter. ePrompter also features an address book. But please understand that while ePrompter can now send messages, it is not meant to take the place of a full-featured email client - it's just a mini-email client.
