Hotmail notifications

  [DELETED] 21:00 01 Dec 2003

I have previously been using first Outlook Express and then Incredimail as my Email client. But now as Incredimail has become so unstable I am moving everything over to the full Outlook program. With OE and Incredimail which supported Hotmail I disabled the notifications that you get in the bottom right hand corner which tell you when you have new messages. Now that I am using Outlook 2000 which does not support Hotmail I would like these messages back, but have forgotten how I got rid of them in the first place!!

Can anybody help me get my Hotmail notifications back?

Thank you in advance for your time.

I believe, although they have similar names OE and Outlook are very dissimilar.
If I were you, I wouldn't try to merge them.
Suggest.. You make OE your default, delete incredimail, reinstall, and leave OE as your default mail handler.

With any luck things may/should go back to 'normal'

Sorry terminus but you seem to have misunderstood my question.

I am not attempting to 'merge' OE and Outlook, I have not used OE for some time now. The problem I had was with Incredimail and so I am going to use Outlook instead. I found OE promlamatic as well and would not move back to it.

What I need to do is to get my notifications back for Hotmail. The one that appears in the bottom right hand corner saying that you have X amount of new messages. I don't know how to do this.

I see..Yes I did misunderstand, however I've noticed of late I haven't been receiving any Hotmail notifications myself. I'd put this down to using 'Shoot the Messenger,' and the google pop up stopper. I certainly didn't disable it deliberately.
A quick way to find out whats in the Hotmail inbox is to use the IM chat icon.... Now that I did disable. :-))
