For some reason I'm having major trouble with my hotmail account. I can receive, open & read any emails I get, but I cannot send or reply to any emails. Does anyone know why? I have a yahoo account also and I am having the same problem with that account. Also my husband has an email account that he uses with outlook and I've tried sending emails from his outlook account and I always get this error message: 0x800CCC0F

Can anybody please, please, please help me? I'm not very good at figuring these problems out on my own and would love some help! I need to be able to send emails!

I can't even contact Hotmail because their help center is set up to receive emails--but I can't do that since I can't send any. I've tried calling the phone number they have listed but it is all automated and I can find no way to get a real live human on the phone. Ugh! Very frustrating!

Sarah

My operating system is Windows xp home edition 2002
I have a Dell computer which is about 2.5 years old. We have Norton Antivirus on this computer and I've already tried disabling various settings on it but nothing has worked. Any other ideas?

Any chance that you are running some sort of a proxy? I use proxomitron & found that I couldn't send emails from Hotmail too until I configured it correctly.

I know that AOL and Hotmail sometimes block ISPs because spam came from there (or appears to have come from there).

If this has happened, the sysops at Hotmail will have to fix it.

I remember a year or so ago I wasn't able to send/receive emails from Hotmail (couldn't tell you if Yahoo worked though), but the problem with my machine was an over-powering advert blocker which was blocking a link to one of the files which is apparently needed to create new emails and contacts (amongst other things too I'm sure).

Disabling the advert blocker solved the problem for me - I ended up changing to gmail when it came out - the adverts there are a lot less intrusive!

It is your browser. I usually use Internet Explorer or Firefox. When I was trying to access from a friends computer I tried his Safari, as that was all I noticed in his icons. Couldn't send. He couldn't even figure it out, until I asked if he had a different internet browser. MSN worked, of course.
Simple, easy, good luck

Had this today on a customers machine, Run Malwarebytes, Download the latest version of your browser or change to another like firefox. reset your browser in internet options, advanced then re boot and install the new or updated browser. Worked like a charm :)

What if you don't have a computer and are using via Nintendo Wii/ DSi? I use my sister's nintendo DSi because I live in Bordeaux, France and it is constantly having thunderstorms and such to the point mine and a lot of people I know have to use cellphones or something else to go online because computers do not work well in my area. My cellphone doesn't have good internet so I'm stuck with my younger sister's DSi.. does anyone know how to send email on hotmail [only]... I also have yahoo, gmail and opera but those do not work either...

I can't send any emails or reply to emails on my hotmail account, on my computer. It works fine with my yahoo account and I can send emails on hotmail on my Ipad. It's just this computer, but I don't know what settings to change on this computer so that hotmail works. I get email, just can't reply or send new ones.
