Hi,
I am currently trying to locate detailed information on Hotmail's HTTPMail protocol and/or VB source code to implement it. I have found some examples, but they use XML to do the signon etc (this method is not what I am looking for). I am interested in creating an email client similar to Outlook Express, but dedicated to checking Hotmail accounts. I would greatly appreciate anyone who can supply me with detailed information on the protocol.

Thanks in advance.

That is not what I am looking for, but thanks anyway. I am looking for detailed information along the lines of http://jhttpmail.sourceforge.net/httpmail.html but more detailed especially with regards to the authentication process.

That article is on the MSN Messenger protocol, which is completely different to the HTTPMail protocl. Thanks anyway.
