    When you try to retrieve your mail from your Hotmail account in Entourage 2008 for Mac, one of the following error messages appear :
    • HTTP Error. Access to resources is prohibited

    • Entourage can not find server. Verify the server information is entered correctly in the account settings and your DNS settings in Network pane of System Preferences are correct

    I would like to suggest you to reinstall the Office 2008. By doing this your problem may get resolved.

    To continue receiving email from your Hotmail account in Entourage, you must configure Hotmail as a POP account. To do this, follow these steps :
    1. In a Web browser, connect to your Windows Live Hotmail account. After you have connected successfully, you can disconnect.
    2. Start Entourage.
    3. In the Entourage menu, click Account Settings.
    4. Click on the arrow next to New. And then click Mail.

    At this point, the dialog or the New Account dialog Account Setup Assistant appears. The dialog box that appears determines whether you can configure your Hotmail account automatically or manually. Follow the appropriate steps for automatic configure :
    1. If you see the dialog New Account click wizard.
    2. Follow the instructions in the dialog Account Setup Assistant.

    Entourage does not receive your application Windows Live Hotmail spam messages. It is recommended that you connect to your Windows Live Hotmail account in a Web browser regularly (at least once per month) to determine if the important messages were sent to the Junk folder. If you already set up an account in Entourage using the account type "Windows Live Hotmail, you may need to configure the account in Entourage as a POP account. In this case, if you set above all rules in Entourage to the old account, you must recreate these rules for the new POP account. If you have messages in the list of folders under the Windows Live Hotmail old, you can copy the messages by dragging them to a folder on hard drive.

The messages in folders other than the Inbox folder will be available only on the Web site Windows Live Hotmail. To download and organize messages that are currently in folders other than your inbox, you must follow these steps :
    1. Deletes rules are defined on the Hotmail Web site move incoming messages to a separate folder.
    2. Create a temporary folder in Entourage to store all messages that are currently in the inbox.
    3. Move all emails from the inbox on your computer to the Temp folder.
