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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook Connector for Hotmail

Does you mail account settings on the web allow for you to choose what type of email server you want ie: IMAP or POP and do the setting correspond to what is in the connector program and outlook? There should also be some type of instructions I would think on the hotmail account on how to set it up or on the connector program.

Hmm I'm looking at hotmail right now and it doesn't seem to have any of the above and it's only POP.

I have the outlook Hotmail connector installed on my work machine (On outlook 2010), and I also have outlook 2016 (which connects to natively) on my home machine.

Both have stopped playing nice with in different ways::

outlook 2010 simply wont connect with at all -
Outlook 2016 shows my email and calendar from but will no longer show my wife's shared calendar.

Both of these installations were working perfectly with no issues prior to the recent upgrade.
Has anyone else experiences issues like this?

I removed Outlook Hotmail Connector because I considered it bloatware. I don't use Hotmail. I use a hybrid system involving Outlook for my computer and Gmail for my Andriod phone and that is working fine.

After removing Connector, I kept getting a message from Outlook about installing the "upgrade" Hotmail Connector. As I was having the red x problem with graphic images not appearing in my Outlook emails, in despair I allowed it to load. The real fix came through as SP2 after I repaired Windows Update and got it working again.

So, is it bloatware? Is there a downside to removing it? Is it benign enough to just leave it alone? What would you do?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

I have Microsoft Outlook 2010 and it asks me to upgrade Outlook Connector.
I installed it but when I go to Outlook again, it asks me to install it again.
I installed it in a folder named Microsoft Office 2010 instead of the default.
Could this be the problem.
If it is, how can I install the connector in a different folder?

Hi Guys, I am having a problem with Hotmail connector. First the data: Windows 7 64bit - Office 2010 32bit, both are up to date, including last social connector update. Linkedin connector works flawlessly but when in the people pane I try to connect to my main hotmail account (the one I use for chat) I get the following error:
"Invalid user name or password"
I guess user name is my hotmail e-mail address and password must be the same as the hotmail password. @least for the linkedin connector it is that way.
I have 12 mail accounts in my outook setup, incluiding 2 hotmail accounts. I am using pop to download all accounts, including the hotmails.

Please any Ideas ????????

A:Outlook 2010 Hotmail Social Connector: Invalid user name or password

If you have two hotmail accounts it would seem that the outlook hotmail connector is linked to just one of the hotmail accounts you have set up on outlook. Might be wrong about this but seems logical. I use the connector to get my hotmail to outlook with pop3. However I only have "one" hotmail account associated with outlook. Maybe you could delete one of the hotmail accounts from your outlook and see what happens.

I've just started using Outlook 2010 instead of WLM 2010, because it is getting too slow and really bugging me.

I'm able to send/receive mail from a web account (from a website I administrate), my Gmail and ONE windows live account, but my main email (the second windows live account) just wont process.

Attached a screenshot of what happens.

Like I said, it's weird this is happening to just one of my Hotmail accounts, but it's so annoying to have to use two email clients, or one client and one browser.

This seems to be a very unreliable thing Outlook Connector does, but is there any way to fix it? I've tried repairing/re-installing Connector, repaired Office, re-added the account, and deleting the OST files. still no luck.

I'm on Win 7 Home Premium SP1 Running Office 2010 Pro.

Are you using the 32-bit version of of Office or the 64-bit version?

Assuming you are using the 32-bit version of Office you also need to use the 32-bit version of Outlook Connector and vice versa.

I installed Outlook Connector (V12.1) on Outlook 2003 on my home computer (Windows 7 Home Premium). After the installation, I opened the Outlook, Outlook starts, my Windows Live Hotmail account appeared in addition to my main e-mail account ( However, my mail account failed to work and the hotmail account does not work at all. When I clicked on Tools/ email accounts, I got the following error message.

"The operation failed due to an installation or registry problem. Restart outlook and try again. If the problem persists, please reinstall. Could not complete the operation, one or more parameter values are not valid."

So, I un-installed the Outlook Connector first then un-installed Outlook 2003, and reinstalled Outlook 2003 alone. Outlook starts, the connector folders for my hotmail accounts together with my main account are still there, no mail downloads and I still get the same error message. My outlook 2003 can't even sent any e-mail.

Hey all,

I recently posted about a problem I was having with Outlook Connector, thinking I'd broken it after initially installing it successfully. So, after removing and reinstalling it, I was delighted when it worked fine all over again. Both my Hotmail and Outlook Pop3 accounts were syncronising in both places and in turn on my Windows phone.

Now 2 days later and having altered nothing, my hotmail emails are only being delivered to Hotmail and my Pop3 account emails only to my Outlook! And subsequently my phone is only syncing to Hotmail!

What's going on?! I've not touched anything but something's changed and not working how I need it!! Is this a common bug? I seem to recall reading something somewhere about Connector only working for a day?!

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Hi, welcome to the forums

There is an update for the Outlook Social Connector which is KB2441641. Problem is there's no help or support for that KB no on the microsoft web pages.

My guess is that after you've installed the OSC, Windows is installing the update and that could be causing the issue. You may want to try the following...

1, Uninstall the OSC
2, Re-install OSC
3, Run Windows Update and choose to hide the update for OSC

Now it's a waiting game to see if the OSC continues to work.

A:Outlook Connector for MDaemon PlugIn

Before I start:

Please do not post the same question in multiple categories. This may be looked at as spam and bad things can happen.

Now that that's out of the way...

I am a bit confused as to what you would need the Outlook Connector for. It's designed for Hotmail integration into Outlook and that's really it.

If this is your own email server, I suggest setting up Outlook to download your emails via IMAP. You may have to contact tech support if you can't do it yourself (or do not have access to the IMAP settings).

If you can't use IMAP, use POP3 and when setting it up, tell outlook to keep a copy of the email on the server for a few days (so any other devices that check your emails can download the message, too).

To be honest, I'm not sure why any email host would suggest you use Outlook Connector. I'm quite baffled, really.

And uninstalling the Outlook Connector is like uninstalling any other program. There shouldn't be any odd integration issues that you have to deal with.

Have just installed Win 7 HP 32 bit as an u/g to a HP dv6000 series laptop with Vista HP 32 bit and Office 2007. Firstly Outlook Connector no longer connects (either wired or unwired) saying that I have no network connection although I am simultaneously connected to a Google web page. I've uninstalled/reinstalled/repaired Outlook Connector but to no avail.

I have a similar problem with HP Update which also stalls and advises "No internet connection" when I'm again simultaneously live with another webpage. I have tried with and without other web pages being open but it makes no difference.

As for HP I understand that although the dv6000 series specs are acceptable for Win 7, HP is not providing Win 7 support, so that cud be an explanation for the HP Update problem. However, I have seen threads on other forums about network/internet connectivity issues with Win 7.

Any thoughts will be appreciated

How can I change the amount of time it takes for the outlook connector to check the mail? It takes forever to check it on it's own. I found a registry tweak, but it says to enter a value of 10 to 60 minutes. I would like it to be around 2 to 5 minutes though.

I'm guessing it's simple and I'm missing it, but that's why I come to the experts!

PROBLEM FIXED: Don't know why but Outlook Connector just started working again. Delete this post.
Using XP SP3, Firefox and occasionally IE8.

I have been using Outlook Connector to bring 3 hotmail accounts into Microsoft Outlook 2007 for years. I noticed today that for the last 4-5 hours, Outlook Connector is not connecting with the server.

I completely deleted and re-installed the lastest version of Outlook Connector (which is what I already had) but that still did not work.

I have deleted the 3 hotmail accounts using Outlook with the idea that I would add them again, however, nothing is connecting to the server. Even if it connects to the server, it will NOT accept my password which is the same one I have used for many years (I know . . . bad practice).

I am able to see new messages using Windows Live Mail and Hotmail.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have Outlook 2007. I got a msg I needed to download the latest version of Outlook connector. Originally after doing that, I got a msg that it wasn't installed properly. I wasn't able to expand the hotmail folders. I was able to repair that with a download and can expand my folders. I can send & receive with no errors, but my Inbox isn't populated.

I saw a very old post where others were having similiar problems, but I couldn't find the fix on the link supplied. I'm not even sure if that would solve my problem.

Can someone help?

The rules that I had setup before upgrading the Outlook Connector stop working. If I open Tools/Rules Alerts and tell it to run rules now they work fine. I have deleted all the rules the set them up again. It still will not run the rules. I even did a repair-reinstall from the disk and it still will not work. I have Outlook 2003.

Hey all I've used Outlook for a few years and have set up a bunch of personal folders for things such as online receipts for the past few years I now use Outlook Connector so I can sync my HTC phone and have just tried moving each of those folders into my quot hotmail com quot folder which is now the default My logic being that by doing so each of these folders will now be backed up online in my Hotmail just Outlook Connector all lost my folders?! Has account too However a pop up message appeared stating that there was some kind of sync issue and would I like to try to repair this I clicked ok and long story short the Has Outlook Connector just lost all my folders?! folders are now no longer in their original folder locations or in the locations that I had moved them to My inbox is also now filled with old emails that I've already replied to and subsequently deleted and some of my draft emails have returned to states that are not my most recent edits I think Outlook Connector had stopped working correctly a while back as my Outlook inbox and Hotmail inbox were not syncronised and it's now returned to some earlier state or something Is there a chance I'm going to get my folders back or is Outlook connector essentially a pile of crap

A:Has Outlook Connector just lost all my folders?!

I'm in no position to comment on Outlook Connector as I don't use it, but would a system restore to the point before you were prompted to "rectify" the sync issue be of any help?

I'm using Windows XP on my Acer Aspire One netbook, Microsoft Outlook 2007, and Outlook Connector so that I can access my Hotmail account. I can access and refresh my mail and my contacts but not my calendar. I receive a 80004002 error indicating that my calendar synchronization failed. What I can't understand is that Outlook connector works flawlessly on my other pc notebook, which is a Sony VAIO. The email setup on both computers is identical, and of course they're both trying to access the same Windows Live Hotmail account. Could there be a setting or a missing file on my netbook that is preventing calendar synchronization?

A:Outlook Connector Calendar Issues

Finally! I found someone with almost the exact same issue as me!!!

I am also using Windows XP on my Acer Aspire One netbook (D250). But I have Microsoft Outlook 2003, not 2007, with Outlook Hotmail Connector 14 to access my account. I too can access and refresh my mail and my contacts on my netbook, but not my calendar where I receive the following Detailed Report under Server Status:

Outlook Hotmail Connector Version 14.0.5117.5000
Account: [email protected]
Signed in successfully at 10/7/2010 6:31:11 PM.
Mail: Last successfully refreshed at 6:31 PM.
Calendar: Error at 6:31 PM.
Contacts: Last successfully refreshed at 6:31 PM.
Errors :
Time: 10/7/2010 6:31:12 PM
Error in Calendar
Synchronization error.
Time: 10/7/2010 6:31:12 PM
Error in Mail
Error with Send/Receive.
Look for a log in the Sync Issues folder.

The log in the Sync Issues folder basically says the error is the following lines in red:

19:12:42 Synchronization error.
19:12:42 Folder Collection Sync Key: 0{2ea38726-8bbb-4a84-9473-3eb208c58616}194
19:12:42 Message Collection Sync Key: 0{61df8ee1-9a1a-4e03-a7de-6ccba8554443}193
19:12:42 Error with Send/Receive.
19:12:42 There was an error synchronizing your folder hierarchy. Error : 80004002.

I have searched the internet for solutions to the above problem but have not found a thing about it. I have the following similarities as lacon&#8217;s post above however but am still unable to find any similar situations on the internet: In addition to my netbook where my calendar is not being synchronized, I also have an Acer Aspire 5535 notebook as well as 2 Dell desktops all running the exact same software configuration as on my netbook. However, these other PCs are all able to flawlessly synchronize my calendar and everything else, only my netbook is unable to synchronize my calendar.

The one thing I noticed that is different and might be important to note: My Acer Aspire One netbook running on Windows XP HOME, whereas all my other PCs are running Windows XP PRO.

Any comments regarding this interesting dilemma would be appreciated...

Since the HTTP method of accessing my Live Hotmail account in Outlook is no longer supported, I found that I have the option to either use the Outlook Connector or configure it via POP3.
What is the difference and Which one should I choose?

The method that you should choose basically depends on the following;

When I opened Outlook today I got the following message:
"To continue accessing your mail using Microsoft Office Outlook, you must upgrade to the latest version of Outlook Connector"
When I choose to Upgrade now, I go through the wizard as directed. Once finished Outlook restarts but I get the same message about upgrading as above. This happens every time.

I then removed Outlook Connector via the control panel then went to the Microsoft update page and downloaded the latest version from there, I then run the update file, go through the wizard to set up and guess what, the same thing happens as before.

Thanks for reading.

I opened up Outlook today to find that I no longer have any social networks to choose from in the "people pane" at the bottom of emails.

I used to just click on the "plus" sign right underneath the persons picture and I would hav the ability to connect with this person on Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.

When I click on the sign now it takes me to the setup screen which is supposed to give me a list of Social Networks to choose from to add to my People Pan but there is nothing there to choose from.
Ive also gone into the People Pane directly up top in the "View" tab and looked under account settings as explained on Miscrosofts website, but again, there are no networks with which to choose from.

Any ideas?

Error: "Invalid user name or password".

Steps to reproduce the problem:open email and see the social connect pane at the bottom of the window
click on the green + Add sign
Select a new or existing social network provider (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.)
Enter user name and password and click the CONNECT button
See the red "Invalid User name or password" message
FYI, I am not using MySite.

I can demonstrate the username and password work for each account via the browser, but the social connector in Outlook reports the above error.

A:Outlook Social Connector "invalid user name or password" on all accts

I'm curious...
* Have you ever been able to connect to any of your social networks using the Outlook Social connector?
* Are all relevant programs up to date?
* Google is your friend. Have you done a search?

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 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?

I opened my e-mail this am and it was Outlook. I tried right clicking on the gear and there is no option to revert back to Hotmail from Outlook. I have 2 computers (a laptop and a desktop). My laptop does not have Outlook loaded on it, so I can deal with the new Outlook e-mail. However, my desktop has Outlook on it and my husband uses it for his e-mail. I do not want to use Outlook on the desktop so my e-mails do not get mixed up with his. Is they anyway to avoid this?

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 have been trying to configure Outlook 2002 to be able to access my 2 hotmail accounts. I can get one to work, but then when i try to add the second, outlook says it cannot find the hotmail server. I know this is not the case because it can still send and recieve my other hotmail account, so there's not a problem with it connecting to the server. What's going on? Can i have multiple hotmail accounts in outlook? If not, what's another good free e-mail service that i could sign up for that would enable me to use outlook 2002 (some type of POP mail?). Please help. Thank you much.

A:rumour or not ? Hotmail and

I can only say that I have seen nothing definitive about when hotmail will go away. It is all rumor and supposition at this point. If you go to Hotmail, there is not even a suggestion to "update" to as of yet, so the casual user is probably not even aware exists. It is interesting (to say the least) that "looking" at automatically switches your Hotmail to the new user interface (although you can switch back). In my travels, I have seen zero info that would even imply a timetable. A Guy

I used Hotmail for years then battled to keep "Live Hotmail" when their "improved" service came on line. Yesterday even Live Hotmail went on the fritz. Today when I checked my email Microsoft informed me that my Hotmail/Live had been converted (unilaterally) to OUTLOOK.

I despise Outlook! But since I refused their offer of Skydrive (talk about insecure sites!), I guess they decided to dump me.I tried to contact customer service, but they seem to have that system out of order today.

Anyone have a similar experience?

I think you have a security issue problem that is causing the crash. Did you contact Hotmail/Outlook about the problem using different Browser? As this is a Microsoft problem and HP doesn't have anything to do with MS software.
