Hey everyone, new around here.
I just bought a White 2.0 Ghz MacBook and of course, completly new to macs. Loving every second of owning one though!

So the question. Is it possible to add your hotmail to the Mail program that comes with the computer.

Thanks,
Jens

I think you have to pay for Hotmails premium service for that but I would check in their help documentation. If they support POP access then you can do it

I heard the same goes for Yahoo's paid service - you can access your account through a mail client

EDIT: I just got my Yahoo Mail inside Mail with MacFreePops!!! Got it here and it worked!!! Yay!

You have to use hotmail plus, or use a microsoft branded product to access hotmail's http mail server. Entourage I believe has the ability to do this, and it's included with Office:Mac...on sale for $99 after rebates from Apple.

Anyone with hotmail or GMail should try this - it says it has those plugins but I have neither account to try

Gmail has built in POP support for free so you don't need to use that

Jeez, why would anyone use hotmail anyway if they don't even provide a way to access your own messages from any client?

Once you are a hotmail member for a certain amunt of time, you get upgraded to 250 MB storage. To use Hotmail, you have to use an e-mail client that supports HTTP e-mails (like Hotmail). I'm currently looking for a free one that does it, so as soon as I find it, I'll post it. Entourage works, but it's not free as far as I know.
