IE7 May Cause Outlook/Hotmail Problems

There is a known issue where, after installing Internet Explorer 7, Outlook has trouble logging into an HTTP email server, like Hotmail. Microsoft has a hotfix for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

When you use Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express to try to log on to a HTTP-based mail server, authentication fails. This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:

  • The client computer that you use to try to log on to log on is running Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7.0.
  • The HTTP server is using digest authentication.
