Added FAQ: MSN Outlook Connector Disabled (Jan 31)
To start with; I’m a big fan of the MSN Outlook Connector. Aside from allowing you to connect to your mail folders it also allows you to connect to your Calendar and Contacts folder on Hotmail. The best feature I think is that it allows you to drag & drop messages from your local folders (pst-file) or Exchange mailbox to a Hotmail folder.
But enough of that; somehow I managed to get it broken and all I was left with was this message on startup of Outlook;
The Outlook Connector menu and status bar have been disabled by the Office Safe Mode. Please contact Support (http://support.msn.com) to enable this.
Enabling it again is nothing to call MSN support for; it’s just a simple registry value that needs to be changed.
