Access to the account was denied... Hotmail via Outlook Express

I have started using Outlook Express (laptop, home use, no networking).

As I was sending (for the first time) an email, I got error popup "Some errors occured while processing the requested tasks.  Please review the list of errors below for more details.

Under "Tasks" tab I get:
Send 2 message(s) using 'Hotmail'     Statue: Failed   Connection: Local Area Network

Under Errors tab, I get:
Access to the account was denied. Verify that your username and password are correct. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Forbidden', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC33

FYI, I am using a utility to add image to the body of the emails as well.

Can you please help me to debugg or change settings to make this work?

One of the things i've noticed is that hotmail will not let you use Outlook unless you have premium services (pay), or have an account that has been active for some time.  Not sure if this is your problem or not, but its why only one of my hotmail accounts work in Outlook.

In addition to your good point, I have been avoiding getting "Passport..." id or whatever they call it.  The reason is that I don't want msnmessenger to automatically log and waste my time when I don't need it.  I will check both points.

Btw, when I clicked on the above link "error description, I ended up with an interface asking for my user name and password.

Just cause you have a passport, doesn't mean you have to have messenger auto start.  You can check it so that it won't start with windows.  Either Through msconfig or through messanger itself.  Thats what i do on all my PC's.  

I agree. Not needing a password reset it is about a free service vs funded. Access on web is free and stifled. Access with a fancy client (Outlook) means they'll want you to pay for it at one end or the other. IMO they prefer subscription plan, auto-charged to cresit card.

I've also refused passport, as well as answering any personal questions. So a few 'features' tend to not work. While there is competition, I can do what I need with the wares of another.
Hotmail stinks. Get yahoo, they give u 1 gb, and never fails. Cheap fee for pop access, totally fair.
