Pick-up Hotmail emails with Gmail

  cornflakes 17:58 23 Oct 2008

Hi, anyone out there recommend a way to pick-up emails from a hotmail account using Googlemail?

I believe it is possible using a “3rd Party email client”, but not sure which are:
1 – Secure and
2 – don’t limit the number of emails you can download each month.

Many thanks in anticipation.......Cornflakes

can you not forward them to your gmail account?

Thanks Guys,
1 - bobbybowls - Don't think I can do this FROM Hotmail

2 - mfletch - Thanks but would rather use Google Chrome/Mail

I know that I have read that there is a way to do this , I think by signing-up to a 3rd party and them collecting the Hotmail and then me setting-up "Get mail from other account" within Google.

Just nead to find a reliable and secure way to do this......Many thanks for trying anyway....Will continue to try and will POST an answer when found.......Cornflakes

Many thanks for the post! unfortunately the "Mail Fetcher" in Google only picks up POP mail and Hotmail does not use POP (Post Office Protocol) So I guess I will keep looking....Many thanks once again......cornflakes
