Windows Live Mail not synchronising with Hotmail.co.uk since before Christmas.

Windows Live Mail not synchronising with Hotmail.co.uk since before Christmas.  Before this it was working fine.  Nothing has changed on my system - so I assume it’s a Microsoft UK server problem that will get fixed when staff get back from their Xmas holidays.  Any comments?


The WLM message I get is  -

Unable to send or receive messages for the Hotmail account.

Server Error: 3204

Server: 'https://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/Sync.aspx'

Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x8DE20003

 

I can access the account via a browser. I have converted to Outlook.com.  It has worked since I made the conversion. I am using Windows 7. WLM is version 2012.

Hi,

Just to let you know, I have now fixed this problem - after trying (without success) all the suggestions made in the private discussion with the Moderator, the thing that worked was -

(1) Removed the not working Hotmail account from WLM
(2) Signed out of Windows Live Mail (from the not working Hotmail address)
(3) Signed in again with a new Outlook address I had just created. This worked!!.
(4) Signed out of this address
(5) Signed in again with the original Hotmail address.

The Hotmail account was then automatically recreated and synchronisation worked.  Also the calandar updated successfully.
