Appreciate some assistance.

Have an email account (Hotmail) that is acting up lately. Sometimes, instead of downloading an email, get a ‘Page cannot be displayed’ message.

Use Internet Explorer 6, and sign in to get Hotmail through a .NET Password.

The PC has Windows Millennium installed, and the hard drive was just reformatted. All the programs were reinstalled for a fresh start, including IE 6.

Any ideas as to how to resolve this issue?

Thanks for your help.

It could be simply a coincidence, but you are the third person I noticed today with a MSN/Messenger/Hotmail problem. I don't know if you recall, but Hotmail had a server problem about a month ago. Could be a replay?

If everything else seems to be ok, I'd wait a day to see if it gets fixed. It's a thought. :)

Thanks for the reply.

Do you know what kind of server problem they had?

Not sure on that FZWG, but I use it off and on, and am not surprised to get that message. Is it working for you right now?

AcaCandy,

Sometimes it works just fine, sometimes the dog-gone email will not open up and the 'Page cannot be displayed' comes up.

Erratic behavior, to say the least.

Wondering if the: "Incompatible version of RPC stub" issue applies here, since it is Windows Millenium with IE 6.0 installed?

I am also experiencing the same problem. To resolve it I have tried:

Turning off all virus scanners and firewalls.
Uninstalling all virus scanners and firewalls.
Deleting all History and Temporary Internet Files - Including Cookies.
Uninstalling MSN Messenger (although this wouldn't affect hotmail).
Reinstalled Internet Explorer 6.0.

I've reached my wits end......can anyone suggest anything else I can try?

P.S. it's nothing 2 do with ISP either because it wasn't working with cable with one company or with a dial-up account with another company.....
