Thank you for the reply Ron
I was previously accessing MSN from within outlook through some other
non-POP3 means that MS was supplying. I can't tell you more because that
setup was apparently removed by the connector installer, and replaced with
this new method.
Unfortunately though - it doesn't work. I have verified all the settings
that the installer presumably migrated from the previous setup. The email,
password, etc are all correct, but I still get this error message.
The error details give me ID: 10056, source: OfficeErrorMessages, Version:
11.0 -also 'Currently there are no Office Assistance articles available for
this error message.'
(I am using outlook 2003)
You need to configure outlook to signin to your msn account in order to.
access your folders from outllook. you can find all the instructions here;
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA102218231033.aspx#2 I have
installed the connector and have full access to 3 different MSN email
accounts. This is in place of the POP3 access that you had previously used
On a side note, the junk email folder does not synch properly. When you
empty the Junk Email folder from outlook, the messeges stay on the MSN email
server. YOu need to log into the MSN account from a web browser and empty the
folder from there.
This used to work correctly from Outlook, but recent upgrades have siable
this. I hope they fix it someday.
When I installed the latest Messenger, it gave me the option of installing
something called 'Outlook Connector', which I accepted.
I now see my msn email address listed in the folders view, but when I click
on it, I get an error saying 'The set of folders could not be opened'.
I already had MSN set up to work with outlook (can't remember how or when),
but installing connector seems to have disabled that (I can still see the
folders, but they no longer update).
So, in summary, installing connector has broken my ability to read my msn
Has anyone else experienced this and found a solution?
