Customer Question

The calendar on my Apple computer freezes and sends me a message saying "The server responded with an error." The only way of exiting is to Force Quit Calendar, which is now effectively useless.
The problem has clearly come about since I tried to attach a Hotmail email to a recurring appointment. When I open the Calendar the email sits frozen on the top of everything other than the error message.
I thought the problem was to do with the Apple software, but they tell me it's a Hotmail problem they can't fix.
And ideas for a solution would be very welcome.
Thank you.

Hi there David and welcome

First, is this occurring within Apple Mail? Or another mail program such as outlook 2016?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I'm not sure. can you advise me how to get the answer for you? (I simply access Hotmail through the icon on my MacBook Air)
Expert:  Richard replied 7 months ago.

Can you describe the icon you click please?

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.

Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.

I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.

Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.

If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

Thanks,

Richard
