I'm trying to sync my hotmail account(s) to Outlook 2010. I've tried both the Hotmail Connector and manual config routes.

When I try to use the Connector, I receive this prompt:

"The account you added is not configured correctly. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly".

When I try manual config, after "Log onto incoming mail server (pop3)" and "Sending test email message" are completed, text at the top of that box says, "Congratluations! All tests have been completed successfully. Click Close to continue". But when I click "Close", I receive this prompt:

"The requested operation has failed".

Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!
