    Probably a stupid question, but are there any alternate mail client programs that work with hotmail's http servers besides outlook express?

    And what's the deal with people saying that you have to have the "pay" version of hotmail to use it in outlook express? It still works just fine for me and I never heard anything official about that. Does anyone actually have a problem with it for that reason?

    Cool, thanks for the links. I'll have to try it out. I'm assuming it works with xp cuz it's nt/2000, right?

    Ant -|- One I don't use yahoo - but I have mine set to:

    My incoming mail server = POP3
    Incoming Mail(Pop3) = mail.comcast.net
    Outgoing Mail (SMPT) = smpt.comcast.net

    I can only guess that yahoo would be the same except with the yahoo.com
