Add Hotmail POP3 Account In Outlook Express

Just when I was wondering when we would no longer be able to use Outlook Express, Microsoft Office Outlook and Entourage to retrieve our Hotmail email, I received an email notification from Windows Live Hotmail Team early this morning with information on how to continue viewing our Hotmail email once Microsoft decides not to support DAV protocol anymore.

Well, the good news is that when this happens on 1st September, 2009, we would still be able to use Outlook Express, Microsoft Office Outlook and Entourage to view our Hotmail email.

Since I use Outlook Express, I found out that I would need to add a Hotmail POP3 account in Outlook Express. Of course, it is not perfect but this is better than nothing if I opt out of using Windows Live Mail. I use this on my laptop. Neither is it perfect too!

For instructions on how to make use of Outlook Express, Microsoft Office Outlook and Entourage to retrieve Hotmail email after 1st September, 2009, view this Microsoft Help Page.
