email for msn messenger

  chrisjohn 22:12 18 Nov 2006

does anyone know how i display/recieve my hotmail when i am in messenger,one of the kids has it so it tells them how many they have,but they cant remember how they did it.

If you mean msn messenger then there's a little envelope icon near the top and a figure in brackets e.g (3) the figure is the number of unread emails you've got.

Hope this is of help.

Cheers, Chris.

Your Hotmail email account and MSN Messenger passwords should be the same as should your signing in name, which is your Hotmail address.

Cheers, Chris.
