I'm on a windows XP proffesonial machine and i'm connecting to a domain on a SBS NT 4 server...

Now outlook loads fine, and i can use the mail server ...

My internet works fine...

BUT

When i try to use my "hotmail" account from Outlook , it hangs then claims that i "need to authenticate with proxy server"

:(

Why is this not working?

Thx

It's probably because hotmail uses SSL, and your network is running a proxy and such so it's keeping your info from the hotmail servers.

You'd have to get your proxy info from your network admin and plug it into the connections, proxy section of your explorer internet options.

Ok , i've tried messing with every setting i can find , and it turns out its not just hotmail that won't work in outlook.

Yahoo pops up a password box (to which i enter my usual login) then it connects

Copernic Pro (search tool) won't work, errors updating then errors seaching , then tells me i need to proxy auth

And the hotmail problem in outlook is still there...

I really need to know how to set this up on XP proffesional , i don't know why its not working too ... I did a clean install

Could it be something on the SBS (NT4) that is set wrong for my user account?

Yes i'm sure it is ... the name of the proxy is called "sadserv" and thats in the i.p box, and the port is 80 ... the internet itself works fine , i.e IE goes everywhere you want it to , no problems with that...

Try putting in the actual IP of the server, also make sure that you don't need a separate username or PW, as I said you might wanna contact your network admin.

that will be because the Proxyserver that you are connecting through only allows connections through one port, this is the reason that MSN, IRC and other things like it dont work. You will have to either connect to the net via a modem of your own, or connect to hotmail using the internet method, as opposed to through Outlook
