Hotmail and Outlook 2003 (Small Bus. Edition) - NOT Outlook Express

Q: Hotmail and Outlook 2003 (Small Bus. Edition) - NOT Outlook Express

I'm a Hotmail Plus (is that the right term?) user so I'm paying for expanded service. It's been fine for nearly a year now, but recently, my connection has been shaky - sometimes connecting, sometimes not.

Now, I can't connect at all and I get the following errors:

Task 'Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers.' reported error (0x800CCC0D) : 'The server could not be found.'

Task 'Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers.' reported error (0x800CCC19) : 'A timeout occurred while communicating with the server.'

I did some trial and error work and realized that the problem is with the URL I'm using:


This address must be incorrect because when I put in "http://www.hotmail.com" instead, it allowed me to get through but only once. That means that the issue is not with my Outlook.

Is there another address and is anyone else having issues with the above address?

What else could be wrong?

Preferred Solution: Hotmail and Outlook 2003 (Small Bus. Edition) - NOT Outlook Express

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This thread looks pretty old but nobody responded so....Hotmail to Outlook 2003 or above now has a "connector" that you need to download in order for Hotmail and Outlook to sync correctly. Here's the download location for Office Outlook Connector: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...B1-DF0A-46E1-AA93-7D4870871ECF&displaylang=en
Good luck.

I mainly use Outlook 2000, however, in order to get a number of Hotmail messages onto my computer's HD, i synchronised Outlook Express with Hotmail. I now have messages from a folder I have on Hotmail on my hard drive too.

A search revealed that this folder (and presumably all messages in it) is stored under C:\Windows\Application Data\Identities\{00B31680-0793-11D3-A398-C0610D677E39}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.

I copied the .dbx file named hotmail - [folder name].dbx to my desktop. I went in to Outlook 2000 file>import blah blah blah, but it wont let me import .dbx files

soooooo.....is there anyway to get my messages from hotmail from this specific folder into outlook 2000? i no longer need the folder in hotmail and will just delete it as soon as i have a permanent copy on my hard drive in outlook 2000. im assuming that since the dbx file is on my hard disk with all the messages (which i can read offline in outlook express) that i wont need to set up outlook 2000 for hotmail synchronisation ?!?

During the course of my own research for this question, I have encounter mixed answers, so I now turn to you for some help.

I am trying to configure my hotmail account to work with Outlook Express... and it is not working. I have come across MANY answers on the web. Some say that MSN/Hotmail doesn't support hotmail being used with outlook anymore, while others say that theirs is configured and works fine via outlook. Some have tried to use POP3 settings with some success even though hotmail clearly runs on an HTTP server. Some say that it stoped working around 2002 only on new accounts, while others say they think they are still able to use OE because they were grandfathered in. Whatever the case may be... I cannot get my hotmail account to configure properly with Outlook or OE. Does anyone here know a way around that? Or are you aware of any programs that I could use to set it up?...for example, I found a program that is supposed to do exactly that for Yahoo! e-mail accounts called YPOP or YPOP3. Anyone know anything about that. Or, can anyone suggest another e-mail client like pegasus, eudora, mozilla, thunderbird,...or any other one that I can use with my hotmail account. Or does anyone know if any of them, or OE work with Yahoo!, GMail, or can you suggest another free one that I can use???
I don't want to "upgrade" to a pay e-mail service just to use Outlook.

Folks I have read the MS tech notes on how to get Outlook 2003 [I have it via Office 2003 Professional, full install] to import from OE6. It fails under either option: import from "another program" or "Import Internet Mail....". Under the former it is pointed to the correct folder, but fails with Error: Cannot open,.. another program in use" but there's not... I tried copying the folder to a nice clean location on the C: and checked all the properties, nothing interfering, still won't open the folder.
Under the latter option it just doesn't do anything after directing it to the correct folder. Seems to accept the command, closes the window, but does not import anything. No error messages.

Umm.... do MS teams communicate with one another??

Closely related: If I could just get the FOLDERS I had setup it would be a great asset, or if i could just get the ADDRESS book it would help. Do you know how to import *.dbx folders into Outlook 2003? Or the old outlook Express address Book?



A:Outlook 2003 Will Not Import Outlook Express folders, mail, anything

They are written in two different formats that are uncompatible. The Oulook Express has a file sytem totally unique to it.

I had the same problem about 6 weeks ago going from XP to Win7.
I had to transfer address book to notepad and put it into Outlook one at a time. The old mail sits in the old PC.
I have heard you can transfer the OE mail files over to Windows mail or gmail etc. Then transfer files from the new mail server to Outlook.
File system is changed over with the mail transfer- I haven't tried it though.

I did a Google and found this. I didn't find this page six weeks ago.

I just launched my email and I've lost everything. It looks like a whole new program has launched (Outlook Express 6), whereas I used to have Outlook 2003. The only thing I can think of is I needed to find my email password to set up email on my mobile, so I went to Start/Programs, but all I could find was Outlook Express 6. Perhaps an automatic update has taken place. Anyway, I went to Tools/Accounts/double clicked on my username/Servers, but the password was blanked out. I therefore killed the program, but when I hit the email button on my keyboard to launch Outlook 2003, Outlook Express 6 launched, which has no emails at all.

The only thing I can think that has changed since yesterday is my Norton 360 Antivirus software expired today and I intend buying an update tomorrow. Perhaps there's a connection? What do you think happened, are my old emails stored somewhere, and how can I restore Outlook 2003?


A:Solved: Outlook 2003 Suddenly Replaced by Outlook Express 6

When you launched Outlook express do you remember that box that came up and said something along the lines of:

"outlook express is currently not your default mail application, do you want it to be?"
and you clicked yes without reading it properly...?

Well it has done exactly that. You have two email apps on your computer, one of them has to be default. when you did that you changed it to outlook express. Luckily for you it is easy to fix.

All you need to do is go into the Start menu and find Outlook 2003 and run it. It will prob be under All programs > Microsoft Office> Outlook. Run it and then you will get the same prompt as you did for outlook express about making it the default app, choose yes to this. This will now make Outlook 2003 your default email app again and fix your problem.
Let us know if this works.

I am stuck....

We got one of the girls a new computer here in our office that had Outlook Express 6.

Her new machine has the full MS Office package with full Outlook.

I tried to use the import / export function to move emails and contacts etc. through our network to the new computer but, no luck. I keep getting error messages saying I don't have permission go into the Program Files directory on the old computer to transfer the data even though I set that dir up for sharing.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this?

I carefully followed all the steps for converting from OE 6 to Outlook 2003. I have just only one email account, so I have one password. After all the neccesary steps were followed to convert to Outlook, I used that same password and saved that for Outlook. (Outlook came pre-installed on the desktop with Microsoft Office 2003).

Now, I have OE 6 and Outlook 2003 both running at the same time. OE6 can receive email as well as Outlook. And they can both send email. I don't understand how to disable OE6 because I don't want to use it any longer.

What do I need to do to have only Outlook 2003 running as my email account?

For the past week, since 8/18/2004, E-mail that I send to Yahoo and Hotmail via Outlook Express 6, is being delayed. It is only certain addresses. It is taking up to 2 days and occassionally there is a mail failure. Hotmail sends me messages that the mail is being delayed and not to resend, but the recipient never receives it. My E-mail address is not blocked. When I send via internet, all is well. I have no other problems sending or recieivng to others.

A:outlook office 2003, want outlook express

outlook express should come with windows (i think its part of IE) so you should have outlook express on the PC

I'm surprised you have MSoffice on the PC, a very expensive product suite

have a look in program files and see if you have a folder called outlook express in there should be a file named msimn.exe

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"

I would expect the program to be on the program list somewhere anyway

I have been using Outlook Express as my mail program. I get my mail from at&t Yahoo dsl web mail which stores the mail on the web mail server. I chose to leave a copy of the message on the server with outlook express. I've got an inbox folder in personal folders and favorite folders in Outlook 2003. Now when I wanted to use Outlook 2003 instead of Outlook express, it started to download all my messages, over 7,000 (270 MB)from the at&t yahoo dsl web mail server. I think it completed this once and the email showed up in the proper column in Outlook 2003. But the messages show up in blue letters next to the inbox as if they are unread but they do not show up the second time in the received email column as unread even though Outlook 2003 is downloading them again. I don't think I set outlook 2003 as my default mail program. I need to do that but don't know how.

I want to be able to export the mail from Outlook 2003 into some files that I can access easily later if I need to, such as importing them back into outlook 2003; but I don't want 7,000 emails exported that I have to open one at a time to know what they are such as I think is the case if you export your outlook express emails. I heard OE uses .dbx files which are not as friendly to retrieve as Outlook 2003 files which I think are .pst. But I don't know much about it or why I am having trouble with Outlook 2003.

can't seem to make office outlook 2003 my default mailbox over outlook express 6 .tried everything I could without success.
any suggestions out there? thanks.planning to delete oe6 altogether eventually .


A:outlook express 6/office outlook 2003

OE6 is an integral part of IE6.
If you are running XP, I would not advise deleting OE6, just ignoring it.

When you say you want Outlook 2003 to be your "default mailbox" I get confused. Do you mean your default email client perhaps? Your "mailbox" would be provided by your ISP, at their POP3 server.

To change the default, try setting Outlook as the default under IE6 (Tools - Internet Options - Programs)

When a user forwards an email with an attachement to an external email address, the message sent stays in the Outbox as well as being in the Sent items. I have been though all the Email Options but there aren't any specific to this type of behaviour. Internal messages forwarded are o.k but just external ones. The messages do get sent though but the user has to manually delete these items from the Outbox.

Using Outlook 2003, Part of MS Office Professional Edition 2003, which has the capability of having multiple, separate & complete email addresses, each functioning in their own profile.

E.g. I open Outlook and it gives me a drop-down box to choose which email I want to go to, say email1 or email2.

Email1 has 2 "Contacts" areas defined.
1st problem is how to combine and synch these two. I don't want two.

Email2 as 1 "Contacts" area.
2nd problem is to combine the contacts from Email1 with Email2.

I thought these were *.pab files, but a search for *.pab comes up empty.

I do not believe personal distribution lists will export. You may just have to recreate them once you import all of the contacts. Why would you want to move from a fairly decent and office oriented mail client to a flimsy tool like OE? Just curious.

Hi.I posted this already but turns out when I looked down the list of forums I totally missed that there was one for internet and email, so posted it in the wrong one. Apologies for that, and hopefully someone here might be able to help. I recently had to get a new PC because my old one died a slow and painful death. My old PC ran XP, and I did manage to copy all my files off before the final curtain fell.My new PC runs Vista.I have a folder full of .dbx files from Outlook Express 6 (including the apparently-important 'folders.dbx'). I'm trying to import these files into Outlook 2003, which I've installed along with Office on my new machine (I tried windows mail and windows live mail but don't like the programs). I've followed instructions, but the program is getting to a point where I have to tell it where my files are stored, and then when I do it errors and tells me that it can't import because the location doesn't exist or the files are in use. The files are on my harddrive and are definitely NOT in use.Can anyone help me fix this please? It seems to be a known error but all the 'help' things I've found are assuming that the reason you're trying to import is because you've upgraded from OE to Outlook, and still have OE somewhere. I don't, I just have the files.Thanks

Is it possible to export Outlook 2003 files (contacts, messages, etc.) to be used in Outlook Express? I am not a fan of Outlook 2003 and prefer the simplicity of Express.
If I can not use the 2003 files in OE can I revert back to my old Outlook 2000 program and use 2003's files? (Actually I would like to get rid of Outlook 2003 and change back to either my old version (Outlook 2000) or a newer Outlook Express). When I upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2003 I was able to import the 2000 program files but I am afraid I won't be able to go backwards to 2000 from 2003's files)

A:Outlook 2003 to Outlook Express

You won't be able to go back to 2000 (although you could go back to XP, since the files are the same). Outlook and Outlook Express are two unrelated programs. Outlook is part of the Microsoft Office System. Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer. Microsoft make the naming mistake that they corrected with Vista. It's now called Windows Mail.

A:Hotmail vs Outlook Express

Read other 7 answers

I've gotten mixed results in trying to determine if Hotmail is still compatible with Outlook Express.

I configured Outlook express to communicate with a Hotmail account and it worked well for several of weeks. Then after that it began erroring out. It just quit working all of a sudden and in fact did so right after two forwarded emails went to the 'outbox' and never left.

With one last attempt yesterday, OE downloaded 3 emails from Hotmail then errored out again. It still did not send out the 2 emails in the outbox.

Then I decided to remove the Hotmail account from OE. I hit the remove button and all of a sudden it downloaded all the emails in the Hotmail Inbox. After that the link was severed.

What is the reality of the matter? I don't want to spin anymore wheels on this but I would like to be able to use OE. It is the only client I know of that will link Windows Fax and Picture Viewer to attached photos.

I am working in a school environment and Hotmail has been blocked to the students for productivity reasons. Some of the students have been accessing hotmail through outlook express. Is there a way to block this from happening?

Not being very wise in the field of e-mails, I need a second e-mail address to be able to use a freebie on both my main PC and my laptop. Same user ID won't be accepted on both!
Can I send & receive the startup mails using hotmail? That will probably be the only time I will use it as my b/band ISP gives me a full user name and p/word facility.
Hope this makes sense?

A:Hotmail & Outlook Express

You can send and receive email with Hotmail, as soon as you set up an account. To keep the email address, you have to login to it at least once a month, or it will automatically be cancelled.
I hope this helps with your question.

Hi, I have added my hotmail addresses to Outlook Express 6. i want to be able to use OE6 from home to retrieve my messages, but also log onto hotmail from work to check them.

I have been told that I can leave a copy of my messages on Hotmail by using the OE6 mail Properties options and then the 'Advanced' tab, when I do this, I dont have an Advanced tab. I onle have General, Server, Connection and Security.

Is there any other way I can change my settings to retrieve messages through OE6 and also leave them on hotmail.

Any help appreciated!

I guess this question has been asked before, (sorry), but how can I be notified and to view my Hotmail e-mail from my Outlook Express?

A:Hotmail to Outlook Express

For Notification, I believe the only way to receive it would be with MSN Messenger.

As for actually checking Hotmail email with OE, that's not a problem at all.

In OE, goto tools-accounts-mail tab-add-mail-

set your display name
set your email address (use hotmail address of course

switch incoming mail server to http
switch the http mail service provider to hotmail

fill in your username (your hotmail email address)
fill in your password
check "remember password"

and then you are done with that part

let OE download the folders from hotmail.

then in the OE folders pane, right click on hotmail and go to properties.

Then you must decide if you want your hotmail account to be checked everytime you check your other email if you have another email.

If you only want to check your hotmail when you manually click to receive it, then uncheck "included this account when receiving or synchronizing"

Then you are done with that part.

Now go back to the OE folders pane and left click on hotmail.

uncheck the syncronization boxes for all folders.

Now if you want to check your hotmail email, click on the little arrow next to the send/recv button and select hotmail.

You should be set then.

I have recently formatted my hard drive and am now having problems with outlook express. Before, I could download and send emails from my hotmail account via Outlook and I have never paid for a yearly subscription to hotmail. Now, I am using the same settings but it is failing to log in to my account and constantly asking to verify my user name and password. All the FAQ's in hotmail suggest that I need to shed out ?14.99 a year for this privilege. Is there any other way around this as it was working perfectly fine last week?

I would like to check my Hotmail account from Outlook Express. Since they're from the same company, I figured it would be easy. Wrong! When I open tools...accounts...new... and follow through with the requested information, it eventually asks if I want POP3/HTML/etc. I pick HTML and then it asks for the address of the POP3 server. I try inputing the URL for hotmail, but it fails when sending/receiving. Has anyone configured Outlook Express to do this????

A:Outlook Express & Hotmail

What version of Outlook Express are you using? I recommand version 5 or 5.1. After selecting HTML you should select Hotmail, the POP3 option should be grayed out.
