SYMPTOMS

When you use Outlook Express to retrieve e-mail messages from a Hotmail account, you may receive the following error message if you attempt to read an e-mail message in a different folder:

The requested resource was not found.

Not Found
Configuration:
Account: Hotmail
Server: http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp
User name: Username@hotmail.com
Protocol: HTTPMail
Port: 0
Secure(SSL): 0
Code: 800ccc34

CAUSE

This behavior occurs when you create a folder on the Hotmail server that contains a forward slash (/) character in the folder name, and you attempt to read a message in that folder.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, use either of the following methods:

  • Rename the folder on the Hotmail server using a name without a forward slash.
  • Create a new folder and move the messages to the new folder, and then delete the folder containing the forward slash.
