Hi Gloria,

I'm not very familiar with the error message that you're receiving, but after some research it appears that you sometimes get this message when working with a Hotmail account.

<strong>Are you using Outlook to check your Hotmail email?</strong>
If Hotmail is somehow involved, Microsoft has a few articles to help with the error message that you are received.

I recommend taking a look at these articles, as one of them may be able to help:

<a href='' target='_blank'>Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: '', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Forbidden', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 998, Error Number: 0x800CCC33</a>

I hope this helps. Keep us updated on this issue by posting a comment at the bottom of this page.
