Hi. I have Outlook Express 5 set up to receive my husband's hotmail. When you set up the account, choose HTTP server instead of POP3, which will only give you one address line to fill in (not both IN and OUT servers like a POP3 account needs). Put this address in that line:
I don't know about anyone else, but my husband's hotmail account is ALWAYS slow! My regular ISP email and my yahoo accounts are much faster.
Hope this helps!
