latest hotmail and dialup please

  bof:) 15:09 23 Feb 2005

Hi all,

A friend (using win ME and dialup) has been told by her hotmail program that there is a 'latest version' out. (I'm not sure if she is connecting via desktop or MSN) but when she tries to collect it, she always gets cut off.

So,1. is there a new version out?

2. if so where can I get it from,download it onto my pc then to disc and put it onto friends pc.

I've tried the microsoft website but was unable to find anything about a latest version of hotmail.

Thanks for your help.

I'm a little confused about your post.

Hotmail is webmail, in the sense that you connect to it using a web browser, although I believe it is possible to use it with Outlook (Express). Hence you shouldn't need a 'hotmail program' to recieve / send messages and I've never known of one.

Their is a newish version of MS messenger which includes hotmail, probably means that.

ps it turned out that my friend did not have the latest version of hotmail (yes I know I should have checked it first but I just took her word didn't I) once I'd downloaded the latest version hotmail ran fine.

Thanks again for all of your help,
