Error synchronizing Hotmail account with Outlook; error 4102

MickMc1029 asked on
On 10/27/10 I suddenly started receiving an error message saying that Outlook Connector cannot synchronize with my Hotmail account. It seems I'm above to send emails through Outlook Connector but cannot receive them. I've verified that my Hotmail account is receiving, as I'm able to log in to Hotmail online and see my received emails. I just can't get them synchronized into Outlook. The error code is 4102. Any help with resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
