Hotmail access with Outlook onHotmail free version

I just thought I would post this information in case it was of use to anyone.

A lot of people think that you cannot access your Hotmail email from Outlook or Office Outlook 2007 unless you have the paid for version of Hotmail.

Well the thing is you can with this program.
click here

Basically it allows you to view/send & receive your Hotmail (Windows Live Mail/Hotmail) from Outlook or in my case Outlook 2007. I can confirm that it does work as I have sent & received email to my Hotmail email address. I takes no time at all to install and basically the only details you need to enter are your username and password for accessing your Hotmail email account.

So basically you can now access your Hotmail with Outlook/Office Outlook 2007 without paying for the Premium (paid for) version of Hotmail. Just thought someone may find it useful

You don't need Windows Mail, it still works with OE6 to send/receive hotmail emails. I use the Hotmail free account most days. David
