In Outlook Express 6.1 (fully updated and patched) I am recently unable to access my hotmail account. I get an error message that includes: code 80004005
                                  No socket error 12019.
I have tried several solutions to no avail. I do notice that I have two "identities"under my profile and I have no idea how that happened.

probably you created another identity
open outlook express
go to file --> identities --> manage identity

and select the one you didnot create and "remove"

restart outlook express and check if it gone

have you tried recreating the hotmail account in your outlook express ?

contact hotmail and make sure your hotmail account has no issues

Does other email in your outlook express getting downloaded correctly ?

Disable firewall or any anti-spam software temporarily

Check for spywares and virus in the system

Wait for sometime before which you try to download hotmail messages as there could be some issue with their server.

Here is the solution:
Go to Documents and Settings and locate the user. Select Local Setting then Application then Application Data then Identities. In Identities go to Outlook express and drill to the .dbx files. Copy and paste all of the files to another location. I used Desktop and created a folder for them. Then delete the identities.

Recreate a profile in Outlook Express go to File and import. Browse to the folder you created and select all. Poof. It works.

I had the same problem after applying SP1 to XP.  Turned out it was my Norton Antivirus.  Turning off auto-protect appears to have fixed the problem.  Now to fix Norton antivirus.
