Default Error 800ccc34

When I try to sync my Outlook Express Address book, I receive an error
message saying, "Some of your contacts were not synchronized because of
errors communicating with the server. Try again to finish synchronizing your
address book. (Error 800ccc34)." No matter how many times I try to
synchronize, I get the same error message. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

Are you attempting to synchronize Address Book and Hotmail Contacts?

See this article
Error Message When Retrieving E-mail Messages from Hotmail Account Using
Outlook Express
(Not Found - 0x800CCC34)
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=252520

It's talking about messages but indicates that the error is caused by an
invalid character in a folder name.

Have you recently updated some contacts? Possibly you used some
invalid character in a contact name or e-mail address.

I think the answer to your question is Yes. I'm in Outlook express viewing
my address book that is stored locally on my computer. When I click on
Tools, synchronize Now, I then get the error message. I've been using this
feature for years without any problems, so that I can synchronize my contact
list on my hotmail account. Any ideas? Thanks.

QP
This behavior occurs when you create a folder on the Hotmail server that
contains a forward slash (/) character in the folder name, and you attempt
to read a message in that folder.
/QP
Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/252520

Have you created a folder (at www.hotmail.com) where the folder name
includes a slash (e.g., "Mail from/to Joe")?

The above notwithstanding, posts from others today who access their Hotmail
accounts in OE suggest that there might be a temporary problem on Hotmail's
end right now.

PS: May I assume you're aware that the way you're accessing your Hotmail
account in OE now (i.e., via WebDAV) will not be available after 01
September? See

I don't have any folders with a / character. Do you think that when I stop
using WebDAV to access my hotmail account, that the syncing address book
feature may work again?

I don't have any folders with a / character.

Then I'd assume something's wrong on Hotmail's end, Steve, or they've
already started preparing for the end of WebDAV support. (In fact, I just
tried doing such a sync and got the same error so that last bit may be
true.)

Do you think that when I stop
using WebDAV to access my hotmail account, that the syncing address book
feature may work again?


Synchronizing Address Book with Hotmail Contacts is entirely-WebDAV
dependent. When support for WebDAV ends on 01 September, you will not be
able to sync at all.

I'd strongly recommend getting all your ducks in a row and switching to (or
at least adding) POP3 access no later than 25 August, just in case there's
some additional tweaking you'll need to do. AFAIK, you should be able to
access the account via POP3 and WebDAV simultaneously (at least until 01
September).

Keep in mind that once WebDAV support ends, you won't be able to access any
of your Hotmail-specific folders (cf.
http://articles.techrepublic.com.com...403shu01_C.gif)
in OE anymore. Of course, all of them will still be available at
www.hotmail.com.

My suggestion was that If you recently added or updated a CONTACT, it
might have an invalid character in it, since you are unable to
synchronize contacts.

The reasoning was that since that error code can occur when trying to
synchronize messages if an invalid character is used in a folder name,
then if that error code occurs when trying to synchronize Contacts it
might indicate an invalid character in a contact.

[Michael, I think MS may have disabled the ability to synch with Hotmail
Contacts, perhaps in anticipation of WebDAV end-of-support. I just tried it
here and got the same error.]
