    I have Windows 7 installed

    I have several hotmail accounts and have been succesfully downloading emails from these accounts in Outlook 2007.


    Recently I installed Office 2010.

    Installed outlook connector 32 bits and verified that is installed.

    When I go to outlook 2010

    - I do not see "outlook connector" displayed on tool bar or anywhere else. Where can I see in outlook 2010

    - send/receive tries to download hotmail files but I ger error message..

    Task '[email protected]' reported error (0x80004005) : 'There is an error synchronizing your mail account. Please verify your account is configured correctly by first accessing your mail on the web. Error: 4350.

    I did access emails directly from hotmail without any problem. Also I did the same with outlook 2007.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Could you just clarify something for me.

    When you opened Outlook 2010 were all your accounts and emails imported already? (i.e was it an upgrade)

    If so, have you tried re-adding a hotmail account now in Outlook 2010? You dont need to look for the connector, you just need to add an email account as you normally would a non hotmail one. The connector works behind the scenes in Outlook 2010

    Let me know?

    Hello,

    Having delved a bit deeper the error 4350 is often attributed to a corrupt address or addresses in your junk mail filter (that was probably imported from office 2007)

    If you are happy to delete the entire Safe Senders and Recipients list as well as blocked senders, this seems to have rectified the problem for a lot of people.

    Alternatively, you could do one by one until you find the culprit

    Either way I hope either post results in a positive Outlook lol.. see what I did there?

    Hello

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Outlook 2010 was an upgrade. I had Outlook 2007 previously. All accounts including hotmail were set up previouly.

    I deleted all hotmail accounts and created new hotmail account. hence, it does not have any email, contact etc. I added this new account to Outlook 2010 and got the same error. I logged into new hotmail account directly and it is fine. Somehow, I am unable to get emails in outlook 2010 from hotmail accounts.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks again for all hyour help

    Hello,

    Did you try the next post I put? About junk filter settings.. anything imported over from 2007 might be causing the issue?

    Let me know :)

    I'm not sure we are on the same page :)

    Have a look at the screen shot

    The majority of fixes have pointed at a corrupt email address within the junk email filter.

    It says delete them all from each list (safe senders, Safe recipients and blocked senders.)

    Then see if the error happens. This fix has fixed the majority of the issues

    Hello

    Thank you very much. I did exactly what you have indicated... deleted safe senders, Safe recipients and blocked senders.

    All folders (inbox, sent etc) of hotmail are downloaded by outlook. I can see these folders. However I still get error message:



    Task '[email protected]' reported error (0x80004005) : 'There is an error synchronizing your mail account. Please verify your account is configured correctly by first accessing your mail on the web. Error: 4202. '

    I tried the above with

    I checked with web that these email accounts are ok

    Hope you have an idea. Thank very much for all your help

    1) a new email account I created today
    2) with an existing email account

    I've just noticed the final part of the error message has changed from 4350 to 4202. in your last post.

    I'm just trying to break mine.. so I can see what could cause it :)
