Outlook express error trying to access hotmail

  1. When trying to acces my hotmail account I get the error:

    Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Object Not Found', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC34

    I am running Windows XP, with all updates installed etc and am on Paradise dial-up.

    It was working fine this morning but not now. I have set up the account correctly. Have tried restarting but still no luck. Can access Hotmail through IE or MSN Explorer but Outlook still doesn't work.

    Also it can still acces my POP3 account at Paradise.

    Anyone know if there is a problem with Hotmail at the moment or if there is a way to fix this?

    System Specs:

    Athlon 1.2
    Asus A7M266
    512MB DDR 2100
    Geforce 3
    Dynalink External 56k Modem

    Any help would be much appreciated.
