When you try to send a Hotmail message from Outlook Express, the following error message may appear:
The server does not support the required HTTP methods. Account: Hotmail Server: http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp Protocol: HTTPMail Server Response: Method Not Allowed Port: 0 Secure(SSL): No Error Number: 0x800CCC35
Hotmail functions normally through the Hotmail Web site.
This behavior can occur if you have multiple Hotmail e-mail accounts that are assigned to a single e-mail identity in Outlook Express.
To work around this behavior, create one or more new e-mail identities and verify that only one Hotmail account exists for each e-mail identity.
For additional information about how to create a new identity, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
