We need a bit more information. What settings are you using? did it ever work? Is there anything in the event log for applications? Do you receive any errors when you try? – John T Oct 18 '09 at 23:13
Thanks. - I just installed it a few days ago. It immediately received but will not send. - No errors. - Event log?? – Xavierjazz Oct 18 '09 at 23:19
As I go back to the website for this, I see that it only refers to READING your email - it says nothing about sending it. Is this the answer? – Xavierjazz Oct 18 '09 at 23:23
Don't think so. From… , "Outlook Connector enables you to use your Live Hotmail accounts within Outlook: Read and send your Office Live Mail/Windows Live Hotmail e-mail messages." – John T Oct 18 '09 at 23:31

Well, at last I have a solution. Thanks to all, but I was finally able to resolve this through other help.

I then got an error message which I tracked down here:

Voila, all works.
