    I seem to have the same problem as one posted by "aussiegirl" on 1 July 2006 shown below:
    "Hi, I have a hotmail account, but prefer to use OE for sending/receiving. I am on dialup and loading a page for every email is too slow.

    This past week, every time I've opened OE, Ive had to synchronize the account to show the hotmail folders. Then every message in each folder has to be re-downloaded. 'Set program access and defaults' is set to use OE, but each time I return to that page, the settings have been changed.

    Today I had OE open all afternoon while writing emails and all my folders disappeared again and a message appeared "there are not any folders to show for this account. would you like to view a list of available folders now? y/n". I dont know why this is happening, but I would just love my email folders to stay put for a change

    Aussiegirl's thread is marked as "Solved" but there are no clues in the replies as to how the problem was solved. I have tried to email aussie girl for a solution but she has opted to not receive emails from members.

    I use Windows XP home (SP2), AGV 7.5, Outlook Express 6 and IE 7.0

    Can anyone help me please?
