    im pretty srue (not positive) that you can't. yahoo is a different story though. why anybody uses hotmail is beyond me. Yahoo is much much better. you get 4 megs and i dont think they have that sign in every thirty days crap. i dont use either cuz my isp mail is awesome ( well almost)

    I use OE to pull Hotmail address.

    Not sure what you are asking in the orginal email. What email client are you trying to use? Full blown Outlook 97/2002 will not work properly with Hotmail. You can check email with it but you can not draft any.

    I think that's because hotmail was created or well known before yahoo...
