Hello

I have a hotmail.com account which is fine.
I also have Outlook Express and can receive mail in Outlook Express from my hotmail account with no problems.

I have just created a hotmail.com account for my friend.
I can receive mail from this new account to my own hotmail account but I am having problems receiving e-mail from this account to my Outlook Express.

NB. It is my friends hotmail address that I want to be able to receive messages from. I can receive them fine from my own hotmail account.

Can anyone please offer any advice.

Thank you Cinders

If your friend is using the free hotmail service, then you cannot access the account with an editor such as Outlook Express. You can only access Hotmail externally if the account is a paid option.

Thank you for your reply.

Is this a new ruling as I can still send myself an e-mail from my free hotmail account, to my Outlook Express Account which I have had for about three years? I also managed to send a message from my Outlook Express to his free Hotmail account, which he received.

Thanks for your help.
