Hi all,

Can I merge the two. I am fed up of having o go online to retrieve my emails, can I set it up to run through OE like my freeserve account?

Any advise please.

Yes...

Tools > Accounts... > Add > Mail...

Add your name and them your MSN email address.

OE will do the rest, when you are finsihed OE will download your folders and hotmail emails.

Your hotmail address in this case.

Yes, just go tools/accounts in OE and add your Hotmail account there by following the wizard. The wizard will recognise it as an MSN account and set the right settings for sending and retrieval for you.

No you dont have to enter those settings once you enter your email address OE will recognise it and it will all be done for you.
