Can I use Hotmail in Outlook Express.

Hi gang

I am set up to use my Googlemail in OE which is handy if I want to protect my personal addie.

Can I do the same with Hotmail, if so how.

Yes, just get yourself a hotmail adress.

Hi George, though I am not sure if I interpreted your question correctly.

Yes, just get an invite and sign up. Today the new OE has all the safety features needed for protection, besides you can have many different identies in OE as well, for annonymity.

As far as I know this will work only with the paid-for version of Hotmail unless you have an existing free Hotmail account that is at least a couple of years old.

I think you did...I should have added, I am so keen on security and only give out my personal addie to friends, all else gets my HM (which I have) or my Googlemail.

A while ago, I inserted my GM to be enabled in OE as its convenient, I just need to remember to use scroll arrow so recipient receives mail from my choice.

So back to question, how do I incororate HM in OE and can I have HM and GM in oE?

VoG™ has given you the answer .... good luck.

Hope you are well! I am off out now, catch you another time.

I just finished creating the HM account in OE and all was well until>>>"you cannot use HM in OE if you are using a free HM account" which I am so thata idea is dashed.

Thanks anyway.

My OE6 (XP) runs the FREE hotmail account, been working for 5 years now NO probs. David

The only problem I have is that I now have to insert user/password in now to log in but before, I just had to c/o log in
