help with hotmail/outlook

    Wondering if anyine can help me here.

    I have a hotmail email address that I access through Outlook, rather than web. I have had this set up for a couple of years and it works fine.

    Now, the account gets too much spam and I have set up another hotmail email account. I want to access it from outlook express also. I have set it up in outlook express as described by msoft. When I try to access it in outlook the first time it asks me if I want to download the list of folders to which I answer Yes. It then sits there for several minutes (indicating that it is downloading) and finally exits with an "unknown error"

    Any clues?


    (sory for posting this in the "wrong" forum but I know that most people have "general" turned off)
