I want to Forward a copy of the incomming mail from hotmail to gmail

In gmail, I can do this through:
Settings-->Forwarding and Pop--> Forward a copy of the incomming mail to: (email address) and (delete gmails copy)

In hotmail, I can't see any option of doing it, I have tried:
Options --> Send and Recieve mail from other Email Accounts (No such option available)

Q. How do I Forward a copy of the incomming mail from hotmail to gmail

I don't think Hotmail has this options but you could try this piece of software

Greetings gram77 !

Within free Hotmail, there is no auto forward like Gmail does.  You need a paid account to be able to auto forward.  

You can use a third program to move your existing emails from Hotmail to another address.  But these will not auto forward new mail as Gmail does.  

Best wishes, war1

Google mail now has a mail fetcher, allowing you to automatically import mail from any pop3 account including hotmail  login to google mail: got to settings, then accounts.
Get mail from other accounts: add an account

for hotmail

Username: expertexchange@hotmail.com
Pop server: pop3.live.com
 Port: 995
Tick the always use secure connection (SSL) when retrieving.
This also works on a free hotmail account.
