You can, Quaver, from the comments above, and the fact that Hotmail has, in the past, been unfriendly to third party email clients, I was concerned that it may well be following a proprietary route yet again.

Can't one use POP3 for Hotmail in OE?

I think you are right. Tbird certainly is. IIRC I saw something on hotmail home page to that effect, too.

Short answer: Yes. DAV was used as a bridge for the HTTP protocol iirc.

They are now POP and IMAP aware now aren't they?

I have a hotmail account. It is predominantly my primary account although I also have a couple of others. This is mainly because I can safely change ISPs without the need to notify everyone on my address book of a new address. My ISP based account is generally only used for business transactions that I don't care if they lose my address when I change suppliers. The question is, though, will I still be able to access it thru Thunderbird or Firefox as I ain't running Windoze?

You'd be surprised at how many photographers and models do so!

Do people seriously use hotmail for serious email?

Microsoft has announced the execution date for DAV (the protocal for Hotmail access in OE) as September the 1st.

If you're a OE user it's advised you move to Windows Live Mail, if you're an Outlook user then you now have the Outlook Connector from Windows Live.

This has been a public announcement on behalf of M$ ;)
