    When this happened to me, I changed my hotmail passwords. I
    made them all numeric and 6 characters long. I can access
    all my old free accounts via outlook express. I tried
    creating one new free account, but it does not work.

    The accounts that I had set up using httpmail worked under
    panther. After ugrading to tiger and installing the latest
    httpmail, the accounts that I had already configured
    continued to work. Any old account that I tried to add after
    the upgrade would not work. After a lot of research, I
    noticed that the working accounts had SSL off where the
    non-working ones had SSL on. It appears that, when connected
    to the Internet, httpmail sets up new accounts with SSL on
    as a default. I have not been able to figure out how to turn
    it off. When NOT connected, httpmail prompts for SSL
    settings and I can configure the SSL off. However, an
    account configured in this manner does not work after
    reconnecting to the Internet.
