Problems with Hotmail account using Outlook Connector


  • I have used a Hotmail account and Outlook for some years but have now replaced my PC and cannot return to the same state that I had previously. I have installed Outlook Connector and registered the Hotmail account. The relevant folders are displayed in the Navigation Pane but whenever I try to open any folder I get a message that Outlook cannot open the folder because it cannot find the data file. There is an OST file in the appropriate folder (C:\Documents and Settings\My User Name\Local settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook)which appears to be updated as mail is downloaded (the modified date/time is changed).

    Can anyone tell me what I have missed, please?
