Can outlook2K access hotmail account

By kenny@ ·
Thanks for reading,
does anyone knows if Outlook2000 can be used to access hotmail account too? using HTTP

If not, out of the box, is there any way to upgrade from some download? instead of using outlook express (it has that function) or upgradeto officexp.

Outlook 2000 can not access the hotmail account directly.

OfficeXP or Outlook 2002 can handle the hotmail account like a normal e-mail account.

In outlook 2000 the only way is to create a folder in your outlook and map the web page address to the hotmail url so you can access it inside an outlook window.

Hi,

I think I read somewhere that Outlook2000 doesn't support hotmail - at least not directly. You can always use it as a browser to get to hotmail but thats a bit pointless.

I'm willing to be corrected on that one.

OutlookXP does. I've used OutlookXP's integration to hotmail - I used to love Outlook with an exchange server - but having used it for a week or so I went back to outlook express.

Outlook express - especially version 6 - integrates very well with hotmail. Much better in my opinion that outlookXP.

For starters, with OutlookXP, there is an annoying hotmail banner around the mail messages and secondly its much slower.

Oh, and I had it integrated with WordXP too and after a few hours usage, word used nearly 300Mb memory! I'd say a memory leak problem.

I suggest at least have a look at OfficeXP's hotmail integration before buying it!

Cheers,
Tim.

Sorry. That link will get you to the support page for Microsoft. You'll have to manually search for Outlook+Hotmail.

It's just the explanation.
