done it a few times overs the years with outlook express. They didnt allow new people to hotmail, since 3-5 years to use outlook as I understand. Good to see everyone can do it now.

sadly pop3 to a mailbox full of gigs is pretty much useless. look how long it took googlemail to get imap access - whereas hotmail has had the outlook connector available for a while, and for a lot longer then that you could add it as a http mail server into outlook as well - both infinitly better then stupid old pop3 access.
