Default help with a few things...

So im on craigslist and i've seen some good photography opportunities that i want to check out...

However, when i click on the email address, outlook express comes up. I set the account up and it fails to send the email...
"The service is currently unavailable. Try again later. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: '', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Service Unavailable', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 87, Error Number: 0x800CCCF0"

I went into internet options and then changed my email program to hotmail.
So when i click on the email address on CL, IE comes up and gives me a prompt to put my email info in. Says invalid password but i tried several times with several different accounts.

So i still can't send an email to the people who i need to talk to.

I tried copying the email address on a posting that i had and pasting it in the "to" box (to see if copying the fake address that cl gives the user would still work) and i never received the test email. So that doesn't work.

Basically, i can not contact the people i need to and its really ticking me off. I could use 15$ an hour. =/

any help?

Hotmail does not allow for you to connect to it thru Outlook or Outlook Express anymore unless you have a Premium Account. If you wish to use your hotmail address you will have to use Windows Live Mail as that is the only application that will link up with hotmail without any issues.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
