    Hotmail and Outlook Error

    The server does not support the required HTTP methods. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Method Not Allowed', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC35

    If you are using a FREE hotmail account they changed their policy - FREE hotmail accounts can no longer be accessed by outlook/outlook express clients, only via a webbrowser.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    My free hotmail ID works with outlook express. Maybe because yours is a new ID and mine is an old one.
    When did you create this id?

    This is for sending.. I can still receive emails via outlook express fine.

    @tarun I opened this account back in 1996.

    Have you tried setting up the account details again. From the error it does look like you aren't allowed access via http although I am sure the new service settings don't allow any access via outlook unless you have hotmail plus - not just no sending. I think they also changed the process so you only logon via https then it switches back to http - that's what happens in a browser now. They want you (not unreasonably) to pay for the service.

    just sign in once in a while via browser - you should be ok for a while, until they want you to sign in again

    Try deleting/creating the account.

    If that doesn't work try a new PST
