forwarding hotmail mail to pop3 mail

By wtcr ·
I have a bunch of emails sent to my hotmail account that I want to transfer to the pop3 mail provided by my internet service provider.

I can open the hotmail messages one at a time and click forward but that method is too tedious for the 200 odd messages.

Is there a faster way?

You can do that with a utility called, "Mail Forward" (mailfw24.exe). Mail Forward allows you to forward mail from up to 20 Microsoft Hotmail, Yahoo web mail, or standard POP e-mail accounts to any e-mail address.

Here is a link for information and a free downlaod:

Another option:

You could use Outlook Express (or Outlook, for that matter) to download your Hotmail. Then you could use the mail forwarding features and/or other mail rules to do whatever you'd like with it. If you already use Outlook or Outlook Express for a POP3 mail account, it's easy to set up an additional account (or accounts).

A really good article:

(Correction: Outook "may not" support hotmail accounts, I've seen conflicting reports. But Outlook Express definately does.)

Thanks Maxwell
I opted for your 2nd option and set up my outlook express 6 to retrieve all my hotmail mail.

Thanks again.
