    I created a Hotmail account. Then went to my Outlook Express and added another 'user account' with my hotmail address; copied all my contact list over.
    It works great for receiving e-mail, except I keep getting the error message below every time I try to send a message. I have gone in and taken the limit down to 60kb, but it still won't let me. (It also shows 'sending 2 messages' each time I send one....I also get a 0x800421C8 message which says it's confused because I have two hotmail accounts.(?) Do I have to delete the hotmail.live account? If so, will that delete my Outlook one as well?
    I'm somewhat computer-savvy, but there are large (obvious) gaps.

    Thanks. My system info is at the bottom.

    "The message could not be sent because its size exceeded the server's limit. You can use the option, located in Tools | Accounts | Properties | Advanced, to break messages into smaller parts. Subject '4th Yrs', Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'smtp.live.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '552 5.3.4 Requested action aborted; Our daily message limit was meant to stop spammers--we're sorry that it's getting in your way. You can wait a day to send your message.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 552, Error Number: 0x800CCC6D"
