WinXP Pro SP3, Outlook 2007. I've been using Outlook with the hotmail connector for quite awhile without problems, but suddenly in the last few days whenever I write an email with my default hotmail account in Outlook and then try to send it, it just sits in the outbox forever and will never be sent. I've got another business account in outlook as well and it is working perfectly fine. The only thing that has changed at my end has been that I cleaned out some malware (fake antivirus) that infected my internet browser, and then installed Kaspersky antivirus. Still I'm scratching my head because my other email accounts work fine through Outlook. Perhaps there is a new hotmail connector version or something? TIA.
Here is the text of the error message I'm getting
Task 'XXXXX@hotmail.com - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x80040126) : 'The operation cannot be performed because the connection to the server is offline.'
