will no longer connect to hotmail

As of approximately 1 week ago my hotmail account will not longer replicate. I am using eM version All directories show as empty but I can go online to my email and see it. I have tried just resync and also repair, but to no avail. Any ideas? I do get an error to say there has been an error connecting to my hotmail account

Although my eM stated that there were no updates due when i search under help/check for updates, I realised via this page that update 7 was out. I updated to that version and the problem has gone. (V7.0.26687.0)
