    Outlook and Hotmail/Webmail (Outlook XP)

    I don't know if this is the right place to mention it, but in WEE 1.13, Woody mentioned that "If you use Microsoft Outlook keep an eye out for the Office Outlook Connector for MSN, currently in beta testing. It ties together your Hotmail or MSN email accounts and tucks them neatly into Microsoft Outlook, so you can easily access your Web-based mail from Outlook." I already use Hotmail through Outlook, so what's there to be expected from this new version?

    Are you sure that it is Outlook and not Outlook Express that you are using?

    They are two different programs.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Last I heard you could not use Outlook to get to your "Hotmail" account, it required OE. Since I quit using Hotmail some time ago and did NOT use it through Outlook, I thought it had not changed, now I see that it has.

    Also I think the WEE is talking about the "MSN Hotmail" which is different form the " <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Hotmail"

    Re: Outlook and Hotmail/Webmail (Outlook XP)

    Ah, that could be it - I didn't know that there were two separate systems for Hotmail. Is there any way I can pass on a query to Woody about this? I've been reading Woody for two years now, but I've never replied to one so I don't know how to do it
