When you start Microsoft Outlook while your computer is connected to a local area network (LAN), and you lose the physical connection to the LAN (for example, if the network cable is unplugged), you cannot connect to a Hotmail account by means of a modem.
When you switch to the Hotmail Inbox, you receive the following error message:
A connection to the server could not be established. 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp' is now in offline mode.
When you click Details, you receive the following error message:
There may be server or network problems or your timeout interval may be too short. Please search Microsoft Outlook Help for (HTTP Mail troubleshooting).
When you click Send/Receive, you receive one of the following error messages:
Task Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers. Reported error (0x800CCC0E). Unable to connect to the server.
Task Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers. Reported error (0x800CCC0D). Unable to connect to the server.
Task Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers. Reported error (0x800CCC019). Unable to connect to the server.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
On a Microsoft Windows 2000-based system, the system may connect through the modem if you click Send/Receive two times.
