Hotmail thru outlook

By TABComputers2002 ·
Is it possible to retrieve hotmail thru Outlook? I'm currently using Msoffice 2000, but I have Msoffice XP if I have to upgrade to do it. I know it can be done in Outlook Express, but my wife uses it and I don't really want to start messing with profiles.

Thanks in advance
Tim

Ms has decided that only paying hotmail users will be able to access their hotmail accounts through any outside services. If you are using the free hotmail account then the only access you will have is through the web interface. See this article:

If you really want to use a pop3 client you'll have to pay for the privaledge.

Cheers.

M$ is allowing current free Hotmail subscribers using OE and Outlook to continue until at least early 2005. New connections are not allowed.
