“HotMail Popper”

My wife uses Hotmail via Outlook Express.
She has Norton Antivirus active, but as you know NAV doesn’t check incoming
HTML mail. Furthermore, Hotmail’s spam rules were stopping to much valid
email. So I set up Hotmail Popper, a freeware download at
http://www.boolean.ca/hotpop/ 
. As the site says, "Hotmail Popper is a small application that allows you to
check your Hotmail account e-mail from a normal POP mail client (such as
Eudora). Unlike standard mail accounts which allow users to retrieve their
e-mail through a POP mail client, Hotmail can normally only be checked on the

POP mail client to retrieve your e-mail from your Hotmail account."

file, and a wizard walks you through the full setup process, offering known-good
default settings where needed, and allowing you to customize the installation as
much as you wish.
