Sunshine, you've had various suggestions about things to try to get
your mail working in your other thread. The error message you're
getting is a generic one that just says 'something went wrong'.
Sometimes it goes away by itself, because there was a fault on the
server that has been fixed. If it doesn't, troubleshooting takes
time. No-one has a magic wand in this case, so you just have to try
each suggestion and then come back and say whether it helped. For
example, have you cleared out your Hotmail folders? You haven't
responded to that suggestion yet.
You've been visiting this newsgroup regularly for the past few days.
Have you read through recent postings about similar problems? Did
you notice that MSFT technical support advised contacting
support.live.com if the suggested remedies fail? For example, they
said on 21 April "0x8000FFFF - We are aware of people having this
error and are working with the product group to determine cause.
Current work around, though not elegant, is to close WLM and restart
the application. If that doesn't work, please contact our agents who
can help further."
What did support say? They usually answer within 24 hours, although
the first response might only give general advice that has to be
followed up on.
It's as well to stick to your original thread so others can see what
has already been tried and what not - otherwise you might be wasting
a lot of people's time.
