Finally Microsoft and hotmail are the same company, so even more confusion.
MS make alot of PC software and Hotmail is a web based e-mail service..
I think it might be worth while starting over and explain what exactly the problem is..
Some screen shots might help as well..
OK to begin with I wanted to scan from Lexmart to email which was Hotmail but I was only offered Outlook express so when I sent the scan to Outlook (which was not my email account at that time) I went to the outlook account with the intent of sending the scanned item to Hotmail. Every time I tried to do this I received the following:
The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.
Subject 'Check out this video from MSN!', Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D
......so I could not send the info to hotmail and had to open in Outlook, copy to a file, open hotmail and attach the file which had the scanned item I tried to originally scan to my hotmail account. Any time I try to send email from Outlook/MS to Hotmail I get the above message. At one time I had 3 or 4 other email accounts and all could send back and forth with Hotmail but something must be set wrong somewhere if I cannot send an email from MS outlook to hotmail.. My desire here has always been to use Hotmail as my main account and all other servers on the net can contact Hotmail but MS Outlook cannot. This is simply not logical. If I have to start using MS outlook I can do that as much of a pain as the change will be however if using that will mean I can no longer use Hotmail then that's no sale. Basically any scanned items from my Lexmart have to go to MS/out but if it is unable to connect with Hotmail I think you can understand my reluctance to go to MS outlook if it doesn't work properly to begin with.
