I would like to check my Hotmail account from Outlook Express. Since they're from the same company, I figured it would be easy. Wrong! When I open tools...accounts...new... and follow through with the requested information, it eventually asks if I want POP3/HTML/etc. I pick HTML and then it asks for the address of the POP3 server. I try inputing the URL for hotmail, but it fails when sending/receiving. Has anyone configured Outlook Express to do this????

What version of Outlook Express are you using? I recommand version 5 or 5.1. After selecting HTML you should select Hotmail, the POP3 option should be grayed out.

I'm using Outlook Express 5 (version 5.00.2919.6600).. I don't see any option anywhere to choose Hotmail. Can you point me in the right direction?? Thanks.
