Email with Hotmail a good idea?

  Baskerville 22:00 23 Dec 2007

Hi All,

I've just got a new computer, my old computer uses Incredimail with no problems but I would like to use another email client on my new comp, is Hotmail a good option as a secondary Email client ?
Many thanks,

It's fine, are there any particular concerns you had over it?

Hotmail is OK, I have trundled along with an account for some time now without much problems to speak of.

Just bothered about security really and compromising the computer with all the virus-bots bugs and all they can do, security is my main concern.

I use it all the time and its fine. Just make sure that you run a firewall, antivirus and antispyware programs. I would give the same advice whatever email client you use.
