Followed all instructions to download Outlook Connector but still get message that it is "connecting". However, it never connects. Is my firewall a possible problem or virus protection?

Are you able to send and receive emails in Outlook?

When do you get the message that says "connecting", do you get this while trying to sync Outlook data with phone or while trying to send or receive emails in Outlook?

If the message is within Outlook and not during the syncing with phone, follow the steps below.

1) Remove the Hotmail account from Outlook. Refer the link below for information on how to remove accounts from Outlook.

2) Delete the .OST file(s) associated with the Windows Live account

a. Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run

b. Copy and paste the following text in the Open field and then press "Enter":
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

3) Delete the .ost file(s) from the above location and install latest version Outlook connector.

4) Now configure the Hotmail account using Outlook connector in Outlook. Refer the link below for information on how to add Windows Live account in Outlook.


I solved my problem. None of the instructions that I read provided that you download a program from windows live to your computer. Once I did this, I was able to figure out how to send and receive my appointments. Just downloading Outlook Connector wasn't enough. samsungoutlooksyncguy


What program did you download from windows live to your computer?
