Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can give me some idea as to why I cannot seem to get O.E. to sync with my @msn.com e-mail account.

I can get my @hotmail.com accounts to sync but no joy with the @msn.com accounts.

It was sync'ing ok until I have just done a re-format, am I missing something in the accounts set up procedure:eek:

Any help appreciated as this has been pisting me off for a while now:rolleyes:

Alan - just a shot in the dark as I do not use @msn.com e-mail but it would be my guess that you have something wrong or an incorrect URL on the "server tab" under properties for that account!

Don't know what ya need for your msn.com e-mail - maybe this can get ya looking in the right direction????? :confused:

Hi dy,

Thx for the reply ;)

When I try to sync the @msn.com e-mail accounts and get to the "My incoming mail server is a" I have three choices

POP3
IMAP
HTTP

Now I know its a HTTP sever so I follow the instructions from there, everything is ok.

Try to get the Folder to download into O.E. and get the "Try again later" message.

I have e-mailed Hotmail support but as yet recieved no reply :blink:

As I said before @hotmail.com works like a charm

If anyone else has any ideas please post

Alan:blink:

Alan have you tried using Pop3? When I used to use msn my settings were:
pop3.email.msn.com
smtp.email.msn.com

I never had a HTTP, and I believe I checked the box for secure password as well (it's been so long I have forgotten the exact name of the box, sorry). I haven't used msn in awhile so things might have changed. I hope I was able to help a little!

Hi F/Dredd

Just tried your suggestion with no luck :(

I have tried all sorts of various ways to configure the accounts with @msn.com, but as I say with no luck.

Thnx for the reply anyway ;)

If you have MSN Explorer 7 or 8 you can't use Outlook Express. They make it so you have to use the Explorer browser in order to get the email.

Hmmmm,

I have it installed, but don't use it.


The thing is it was working ok until a recent re-format :confused:

I'm currently reading through a msn article on this subject and seem to be getting a little further with..

[pop3.email.msn.com] in the "incoming mail server POP3" Box

[smtp.email.msn.com] in the "outgoing mail server SMTP" Box

When sync'ing now I am getting a box up requiring my username and password, but for some reason its not accepting them. :confused:

I can see the F.B.H. coming out soon. /me mad

Cheers
Alan

You'll need to go to the properties of that account and put your info in and then check the box to remember password (unless you have already done that), also try checking the login with either secure or clear text (can't remember which one). That might help as well!

Argggggggh

Settings - E-Mail Tool
Configure Outlook Express® to read your Web-based e-mail

Sorry, this service is not available to accounts on the unknown domain.
wtf

Time for something to eat, a little calmer, a re-think and then the F.B.H. will be coming out :)

Did you sign in with your msn passport?
Cause if you signed in with hotmail it surely won't work.
After your response I rechecked it myself, workes fine!

Re: Try this

This will do the trick,
Use the HTTP tool located at http://supportservices.msn.com/us/oeconfig/ to check @msn.com email in Outlook Express. This tool will configure OE to work with @msn.com, as it needs a different server than @hotmail.com.
Hope it helps, did the job for me

You are a star :D :D :D


I was signing in using my Hotmail id instead of my msn id.

It is all sync'ed up now, thax a lot

Been here from the start (visiting XP-erience daily since late last year, if I remember correctly), but I've been lazy to register and to post :p !
This is one of the best sites there is!
Although I wish they add an RSS server to work with the news plugin/ trillianpro (works about the same as Klipfolio)
