Outlook Connector – “404 – File or directory not found.”

A few months back I started getting this error message, 404 – File or directory not found. The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable., when trying to mark a post as junk mail or not junk mail from within Office Outlook 2010, hooked up to Windows Live/Hotmail using the Outlook Connector. I’m running the 64-bit version, but that really shouldn’t matter. I get the Junk e-mail classification message from preventjunk@live.com, and I then click the Not junk e-mail or Junk email button, but I always get that dreaded message. If I open Windows Live/Hotmail in a browser, I have no problems using the junk e-mail classification functionality. That doesn’t make much sense, unless of course MS now wants us to use the browser instead of the connector.
