Since yesterday when I open Outlook express it says:

Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Forbidden', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 998, Error Number: 0x800CCC33

You too...

We have seen a few cases of this since Microsoft changed their systems yesterday. Download and install the Outlook Connector software. You will find the fix here:

Outlook and hotmail both suck. Switch to Gmail :)

But, anyways my hotmail and outlook are working fine.

Microsoft stated quite a while back that they were discontinuing connectivity between outlook express and hotmail.
They encourage you to switch to Live Mail which does support connectivity to hotmail.
