    E-Mail Client Questions...

    Under windows, I can use Outlook Express as a client to retrieve shit from my "Hotmail" account. Now, this seems like it would be an easy task in linux, but alas, I'm stumped like a legless midget.

    From what I can see, outlook express uses "" as the "INCOMING MAIL" information, and uses an "HTTP" Mail option instead of "POP" Mail. None of the email programs that came with my Linux distrobution will allow me to acheive this. I have tried on:

    If anyone knows what I can do to get this working, please let me know.

    What is even worse than that, is if you have an MSN account, they have removed pop3 access from anywhere except for Outlook Express as well. They are doing that whole take over your desktop thing to the supreme. MSN's email is now solely through hotmail and that limits your email retrieving by quite a bit. Sorry man.

    If you give a man a fire he'll be warm, if you light the man on fire he'll be warm for life.
