    Hi All

    Can anyone offer me some advice please on how to get a Hotmail account to appear within outlook express and then to look for new mail there.

    I have XP Home Edition and in my login I have this feature but within other users it's not there.

    Any experts out there???

    regards

    John

    John, if you mean how to set up your hotmail in OE then

    In Outlook Express, click Accounts on the Tools menu.
    In the Internet Accounts dialog box, click Add, and then click Mail.
    On the first page of the Internet Connection Wizard, type your full name, and then click Next.
    On the Internet E-mail Address page, type your full Hotmail address ([email protected]).
    On the E-mail Server Name page, click HTTP in the My incoming mail server is box.
    In the box My HTTP service provider is, click Hotmail or Other.

    If the box Incoming mail server is displayed, type http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp.

    On the Internet Mail Logon page, type your account name and password in the respective boxes. Your account name is the first half of your MSN Hotmail e-mail address (the information before the @ sign).
    Click Finish to add your Hotmail account to Outlook Express.

    It should be the same for other users too.

    Your Hotmail account will be updated when you click Send/Recv
