    I too have same error 4202 and it get resolved with the help of microsoft. Now connector 14 is getting synchronizing outlook with MSN and Hotmail. What you need to do is to delete an illegal address in lists in MSN or Hotmail or outlook. If you have this illegal add then you will get this error. I have .ru extension and some more suspicious address go through the lists and delete them. By doing this it will work. Delete close outlook then close msn/hotmail and open hotmail then outlook. Repeat this for each deletion.

    I get resolve this issue by doing this trick. I have to remove the invalid domain in the Junk email setting from Blocked sender. It took some time to recognize which email address is causing this and now it is working fine after I remove it.Remember that .uk and .ru are not valid domain. So you just need to remove all those address which have invalid domains. Hope this will solve your issue.
