Hotmail In Outlook Express

Is it possible to use my hotmail e-mail address in Outlook Express? If so how do I do it? Thanks.

It would be much easer to use Windows Live Mail

click here

Get multiple e-mail accounts in one program – Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo!* and more

I would like it in Outlook Express (Windows Mail In Vista) so it can work along side my other e-mail address so when I send/receive it downloads all e-mails.

Windows Live Mail is different to Windows Mail

It can download all the mail in one go from multiple addresses even hotmail and Google mail

Try it out you can always remove it if you dont like it,

It wont remove your outlook express

I used to have hotmail on outlook express add account in options.

just tried it again and message saying hotmail no longer allows email access via outlook express for free email accounts .

so i suppose if you have a paid for account

Thanks I will try mfletch suggestion.

You can now use Hotmail in Outlook Express again, as they have now set up POP3 and SMTP settings - use the following guide to set up your Hotmail account in OE

Sea Urchin is correct. I use Hotmail in OE, no problems whatsoever. David
