    outlook 2007 with hotmail ?

    I have a question about Outlook 2007 & hotmail. I am running Vista 32 bit Ultimate on my desktop & XP on my laptop. On the desktop when I set up a new account in Oulook 2007 from hotmail, all my folders in the hotmail account come into Outlook but they are empty. My inbox, sent and delete folders do work but all the ones I created in hotmail are empty. When I log into hotmail via the internet they are there and have archived emails in them. On my XP laptop all of the folders are there & have emails but I use Outlook 2003. One more piece of input I also have a @msn.com account & all the folders created in that one come over to Outlook 2007 and have emails in them.

    Don't know if this Vista,@hotmail, or Outlook 2007 related but any help/advice with this would be greatly appericated?

    Run this:

    Download details: Microsoft Office Outlook Connector 12.1 Beta 2

    It allows Live Hotmail access from Outlook 2007 and 2003. Both Free and Paid accounts.

    Did you download and run the file before you set up the Hotmail account, or after?

    I ran it after I setup the hotmail account with Outlook do you think I need to remove the account I am having problems with & then try to re-install it? If so should I try to run that Connector again before I re-install that account?

    Thanks

    The connector is a simple tool. un-install it. remove all existing accounts (unless it's an important, working one) and then re-install and create the account with the conncetor tool.

    Re: outlook 2007 with hotmail ?

    Hello all... I have the same issue! I was also having massive issues with outlook when I downloaded hotmail as i think my pst files and the mappings were incorrect.. I only did it to synch contacts/calendar on hotmail with my new BB as hotmail is not so BB friendly. unlike gmail.

    however, if I remove connector, my outlook doesnt open.. errrors out.. so I needed to restore my system back to a day ago.. but i will try again to remove and re-add hotmail account after removing and adding connector..s hould i be adding a http or MAPI or pop 3 account?
