Hello MnInShdw,

Paid Hotmail users can download Hotmail mail to Outlook via Httpmail protocol.  Opera does support httpmail protocol, so cannot use Opera Mail to download Hotmail.

You can use a third party program like Freepops, which acts as gateway between Hotmail interface and Opera email client.

Hope this helps!

Hello war1
thanks for your input.
I've used freepops before, but I found it useless.

MnInShdw, I use Freepops for Hotmail Junk mail access, and found it very helpful.  Sorry that Freepops could not help you.
