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)

    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.

    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

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