    I'm trying to configure all my email accounts (webbased/and regular) to microsoft outlook, however, I am having problems linking the hotmail accounts to it. I know there is a tab that you can click and it will link the email to your outlook but when I click send/receive it checks all the other accounts and gives me an error message for the hotmail accounts.

    Can someone help me out?

    This works for Outlook Express... see if it could work for Microsoft Outlook;

    In OE, click on Tools/Accounts, select your email account and click Properties. On the general tab you can enter the ReplyTo email address. Click Apply & OK.

    Hope it helps...

    Since September 2004 Hotmail does not apparently support access from Outlook etc unless it was in service at the time or is a paid subscription (not free).

    Also I am not sure that Outlook supports more than one http account per profile, but that may depend on the Outlook version (which is unstated). It certainly was the case for Outlook 2002.

    It is Outlook 2003 XP - so basically this will not work with hotmail?

    Is there anyway to get around this at all?

    Would it work with outlook express
