i just performed a fresh install of windows XP Pro and i guess it comes with Outlook 6. Anyways when i set it up it asked about incoming mail or something like that and i set up my hotmail through it. (im not good with computers obviously) Anyways my hotmail account is working fine when i use it through outlook, but whenever i want to access my actual Hotmail account online it wont let me in. it asks for my account name and password like always but then it just thinks and thinks, nothing happens??? Is this because i have it linked to outlook? how can i fix this??? Help please. i would rather use my actual hotmail account then outlook express.
Ok this problem been a while on the inernet and microsoft placed a fix program that will make you access your email easy through IE. Btw if you install firefox, you will be able to access ur email easily and much quicker.
This is the website that you can download the patch from.

I was having the same problem on several of my networks in Kuwait and Iraq. I beat my head against the wall on this for a week. One of my guys finally fixed the problem for us with one simple setting change.
1. Make sure IE is not running
2. Go to the Internet Options Control Panel
3. Click Advanced
4. Uncheck use HTTP 1.1 & Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections
