Email client that supports HTTP email (hotmail


While a majority of Email providers use the simple pop3 email type accounts, there are still a few providers that use http server styled email (such as hotmail and msn).

As far as I know, Outlook/Outlook Express is the ONLY program for win that will support hotmail/msn.

Is there a port for outlook express for linux that anyone is aware of? Or ANY software that will handle hotmail accounts?

Thanks for any help guys!

The hotwayd/hotsmtpd pair of programs will let a normal POP3/SMTP email program receive and send mail (respectively) through Hotmail.

There's also a plugin for Thunderbird to do hotmail, I believe. . .

Their site is down today. You can look at the SourceForge project page and the Google cache of their site.
