    Moving mail from Hotmail to OE (OE 4)

    Hi, I'm not sure if this has ever worked before - can I unload my hotmail mailbox (which is getting full) into Outlook Express? The only way I know is to open each one and forward it, which at that point drops the original sender's name and RE, which is how I keep track of them. They all are from me, that's no good! Thanks for any and all thoughts, including jokes. <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> (I'm posting this in the Outlook window because the OE window seems underattended and I figure the answer would be the same!)

    Thanks

    if using hotmail support in either express or outlook 2002, you can drag hotmail from the hotmail inboxes to outlook or express folders. when dragging, online copies are moved to deleted folder at hotmail.

    once in express, you can export to outlook if you don't have ol2002. you may lose header data, but message body remains.

    ..and how do you set up "hotline support in outlook express"? this is new to me. All I have is a hotmail account; mail is not downloaded anywhere. Thanks!

    if your version of express doesn't do hotmail, then you'll need to upgrade. i forget which version added hotmail with HTTP protocol.

    Will this work on Outlook 2000 SP1? or is there a way to do this on Outlook 2k?
    Thanks.

    only ol2002 supports http access - there are programs called web2pop or hot2pop which can be used with outlook 2000.

    Hi MaryJ,

    Could give the link for hot2pop? I found the web2pop with a search engine, but cannot find anything on hot2pop.

    Thanks

    Sorry about the dyslexic typo. It's pop3hot, at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.pop3hot.com>http://www.pop3hot.com</A>.

    (Actually I swiped it from an expert on another forum and only checked it out the first time. Somewhere along the way she changed the name of it. Fifty lashed with a wet noodle for me.)
