Joe,

you can do this, if you download Outlook Express 5, if you are not already running it it has support for Hotmail Accounts.  To add the account, go to tools, accounts, Add, Mail, Enter your Display name, put in your hotmail e-mail address, on the next page it should have picked up a hotmail http mail server, and all of the options will be greyed out.  Keep following the onscreen prompts entering any information that is necessary.  Once you have finished this it will as you if you would like to download a list of folders, like a news group, and thats it done!

Internet Explorer 5 & Outlook Express 5 can be downloaded from Microsofts Web site :

Ian

if you aren't interested in the problems associated with Internet Explorer 5, you can do exactly what you want with yahoo mail ( www.yahoo.com ) without upgrading anything and risking the problems associated with IE5
