In order to soft the problem of not receiving hotmail emails in Outlook (error codes 4102 and 8de00002), the solution that worked was to delete and then add my hotmail account to Outlook. Since doing this, I now have multiple folders both in email, calendar and contacts. How can I remove the extra profile (in this case, called "contactbackup")?

Thanks for your help.

Go to file and select account settings. If you have a duplicate email account under account settings, delete it and check if it helps.

I already did that. I want to delete it so I don't have to close it every time I restart Outlook.

Only my hotmail account shows up when I look at the email accounts. However, the contactbackup.pst shows up under the Data Files tab. I changed my default folder to my hotmail email address and that did the trick. Thanks.
