I have hotmail and read it via Outlook 2003. I had my system auto verified
earlier this year so I could then download Outllok Connect. Now I keep
getting a po up saying my Outlook has not been verified. Please advise,
thanks.

After Sept 1, 2009, that means you need to either use POP to access your
Hotmail account or install the Outlook Connector add-on to get IMAP-like
access to your Hotmail account.

Only you know what you mean by made-up words or phrases, like "auto
verified". Just what was it called that you had to click on? Just what
did the dialog actually say when you had to do this "auto verify"?

> so I could then download Outllok Connect.


Don't have a clue how the absence of "auto verified", whatever that is,
prevents you from downloading and installing software. Maybe "auto
verified" means Windows Genuine Advantage validation to prove you have a
non-pirated copy of Microsoft's product. From what I see at Microsoft's
download page for the Outlook Connector add-on, there is no WGA
validation to download the installer file. There may be validation when
you run it to ensure that you have a non-pirated copy of Outlook
installed.

Did you check that you have the *latest* version of the Outlook
Connector add-on?

Might you perhaps be using a trial version of Outlook. Was this
software bundled in the sale of a pre-built computer? Often that
bundled software are trial versions. You will need to buy a non-trial
version of Outlook (or Office if you want the whole kaboodle). First
save your .pst file and then uninstall the trial version before
installing the non-trial version.

Of course, knowing what those errors or messages actually said would
help rather than summarizing a description of them. For as bad is your
description, you could be asking about a login failure.

--- Posting Hints -
ALWAYS REVIEW your message before submitting it. You want someone OTHER
than yourself to understand your post. Also remember that no one here
is looking over your shoulder to see at what you are pointing. If you
don't well explain your situation by providing the details that you
already know, don't expect others to know what is your situation.
Explain YOUR computing environment and just what actions you take to
reproduce the problem.

Often you get just one chance per potential respondent to elicit a reply
from them. If they skip your post because you gave them nothing to go
on (no details, no versions, no OS, no context) then they will usually
move on to the next post and never return to yours.
