    Thunderbird and hotmail

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but since Microsoft
    Technical Support for Hotmail is horrible and doesn't know how to read, here
    goes. I use Thunderbird by Mozilla and was receiving and sending mail with no
    problem. Then Hotmail/Windows Live Mail updated and now I can only download
    one piece of mail when I check for mail regardless of how many new mails
    there might be. Also, I can no longer send mail at all. Nothing was changed
    on my end of things so it is something to do with the new update. When I try
    to send mail I get an error saying I'm gettting "negative vibes" and it won't
    accept the password. The password is correct and works if I use a browser
    instead of the T-Bird mail client. Any ideas??

    This newsgroup is for problems/questions regarding the Microsoft email
    client called, "Windows Live Mail". While its functions are similar to
    Mozilla Thunderbird, they are not the same program at all, and nothing
    anybody knows about Windows Live Mail would apply to Thunderbird.

    Hotmail support issues are in another support group. I had though it was
    'microsoft.public.msn.discussion', but am not so sure, now. Another group
    you might try would be, 'microsoft.public.internet.mail'.

    Other than those groups (for Hotmail), your Thunderbird questions would best
    be answered in a group specifically intended for Thunderbird user.

    I knew it was not the right place for this , but this is where Microsoft
    support for Hotmail sent me. Apparently I was correct in my assumption that
    no one can read at Microsoft. Thanks for everyone's replies.
