Hey im trying to setup my hotmail to work with outlook and its not working, just wondering if i could get some help? I've downloaded the connector but for some reason when i try to get into outlook this message comes up

"Cannot open your default e-mail folders. Outlook cannot start because a data file to send and receive mail cannot be found. To add a data file, such as a personal folder file, double click the mail icon in control panel."


Now i tried that but when i tried to set up anything this comes up


"This information service is not installed on your computer"


I'm not really sure where to go from here?? Any tips?

Hello,

I have written a connection guide to make Outlook 2007 work with Hotmail.

See if any info there will help you get it working.

Cheers,
Mak

still doesn't work because once i go into setup the email it says "The information service is not installed on your computer"... now i searched that up and there is a patch which i got but when i tried to install that it says "The expected version of the product was not found on the system".

Even when i go into the program it loads and says "cannot find data file to send or receive" and the closes.


any thoughts?
