    Greetings newbieweb !

    Do you have a free Hotmail account or a paid one?  If free, do you have Httpmail access?

    If no, you will need to use a third party program like Freepops act as an interface between Hotmail and Outlook

    For login name, use full email address.
    For POP3 server, use
    For POP3 port, use 2000

    Hope this helps, war1

    How do I know if I have Httpmail?

    My Hotmail is free.

    I think I need freepops, but how do I know for sure?

    If you were a member of Hotmail before April 27, 2004, you have been grandfathered into having httpmail.  If not, then you do not have that feature.

    Aside from Freepops, you will need a paid Hotmail account to gain POP3 or HTTPmail access to connect to Outlook.
