  • Wish i’d kept the beta!

    I posted a little while back about the very cool Outlook Connector that lets you access a hotmail account within Outlook

    All in all i’ve been pretty pleased with it. I read somewhere recently it was no longer a beta so planned to upgrade to the “proper” version

    A couple of days ago i opened Outlook and was prompted to upgrade the outlook connector. So i allowed the installer to do it’s thing but since then the connector hasn’t worked at all and from the comments on the Outlook team blog i’m not alone

    The error i initally had told me it was unable to sign in and in the log it simply said “Network operation failed”

    I thought it wouldn’t hurt to remove the account from Outlook and re-add it. Still doesn’t work but now i’m getting an extra message

    A pop-up told me that the feature was only order ativan online available to subscribers (and even asked me if i’d like to subscribe now) and the log pretty much says the same thing

    Outlook Connector Version 12.0.4518.1063

    Account: ******YEAH RIGHT!!**************

    I hate bitching about software that has been given to me for free but it is a little frustrating when the beta worked without issue

    I’ll keep playing with it but i think i’ll be waiting for a fix from the Outlook connector guys
