For the benefit of others, the Hotmail Connector link:
Strange - the claims that "Outlook Hotmail Connector enables you to use your
Live Hotmail accounts within Outlook" etc. are the same for Outlook Connector
- "With Microsoft Office Outlook Connector, you can use Microsoft Office
Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 to access and manage your
Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail or Microsoft Office Live Mail accounts,
including e-mail messages, contacts and calendars for free!" - are the same
with the exception of including Outlook 2010.
The history that Microsoft has of it's upgrade/update processes has left a
sour taste in my mouth.
Anyway - the question still remains:
Please advise the correct procedure to install/uninstall 'Hotmail Connector'
over 'Outlook Connector'
Thanks again in advance.

Yes Duncan thanks.
I have discovered many related posts.
Not nice of MS to dump this nasty on us this way.
The other posts mention installing HC (Hotmail Connector) which resolves the
problem - good.
But - the instructions on the HC download page don't mention anything about
what to do with Outlook Connector.
And - the other posts don't mention about un-installing OC (Outlook
Hence my question re. the correct procedure?
- Does HC now make OC obsolete?
- Is there any reason to leave OC installed?

The "Outlook Hotmail Connector" and the "Outlook Connector" are the same
thing, in this context.
