I've just started getting error message 0x80040126, which says that I can't
send messages because the server is offline. A brief search of the web
indicates that others are experiencing the same problem. No direct help is
available from MSN, though there are third parties offering fixes. Does
anyone have a suggestion?

Jason,

Unfortunately, this does not work. I got a fancier, newer version of
Outlook Connector and the error messages no longer appear, but my MSN emails
are still not getting into Outlook after the initial sync. (The initial sync
works when the account is added, but subsequent send/receives don't work.
