I want to start using MS Office Outlook to collect my hotmail instead of having to open a web page signing into Hotmail each time.
i want to just collect my mail and put any appointments into my diary, how do i go about it? Ive never used outlook before.
The appointments isnt a problem, but how do i get outlook to get my mail from my hotmail account?

click here Is from the microsoft site and is easy to follow. If you go to Google and type 'hotmail' and 'outlook' you get about 500 hits on how to configure the set up you want.

You have the "Paid for" version of Hotmail.

You cannot do it on the free Hotmail

Spend £15 a year, or so, and Upgrade to the full version.

Open Outlook - Tools - Email accounts - open new account - select "HTTP" enter your hotmail address and password etc. and you should be set to go. This has been working for me just fine using my free hotmail account (which I have had over 10 years).
