You wrote that you see the same error message as the original poster. That
is server error 500 (from September).
I have server error 5102, but it only occurs with one out of my five Windows
Live Hotmail accounts. Other accounts are working.
Last month, Justin from Microsoft posted (in part):
"For all of you guys seeing the 5102 server error ... We have found
a couple of issues on our servers that may be causing this. We
have a team of people engaged and actively investigating ...
this is a problem on our end (from the best we can tell)."
Subsequently, some weeks since passed where WLMb and all of my hotmail
accounts worked okay, but this server error is back bigtime. The problem
returned about one week ago, and, except for a single, 20-minute interval on
, I've been unable to send or receive e-mail messages with my default
I'm curious to know more about your situation. Will you please post the
server error number you see? Also, does your issue involve a Windows Live
Hotmail account? If so, then is it your default account in WLMb? Do you
know approximately how much storage space this account currently uses on
I'm trying to look for a correlation between these various server-error
flavours and the size (and default-account status) of the hotmail accounts
By the way, some people can resolve this issue by removing and adding the
problematic account. You could try that; it does not help me.
