Everytime i go on to www.hotmail.co.uk to check my emails, it says page cannot be displayed

I then tried setting up my outlook express to my hotmail account and i get this error...

Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: '', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 12029, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Any help would be appreciated
