    unable to send mail or reply using hotmail accounts...

    When I try to send outgoing mail I get an error box that reads: "This
    message has not completed downloading. It cannot be saved until download is
    complete." Searching the Microsoft boards I've not been able to find any
    other users with this issue, and a Google search for the error's text
    produces 0 matches. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, Cryptarius.

    Is this when you are using Windows Live Mail? Or when you are using the
    web-based interface in IE or a third-party browser?

    Since you posted your question using the web interface, I can't tell what
    application you are using. ;>(

    Click here:
    news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...e.mail.desktop

    That will fire up WLM and bring you right back here, but using WLM's
    newsreader interface, rather than the web.

    Hiya, i'm using Windows Live Mail when i get the error. If i use the
    web-based system then everything works just fine. But I'd prefer to be using
    Live Mail because i have multiple accounts and it's a pain logging between
    them frequently.

    Hi, Cryptarius.

    Thanks for clarifying that. I'll back off now and let the Hotmail gurus
    handle this. I've never used Hotmail.
