Yes, it's "gotmail"
I think what gotmail does is parse the html similar to a browser, and captures the emails that way. It seems that it then sends them to another email address that you specify. The Gotmail README explains that if the page structure of hotmail changes, it may stop working.
I believe that hotwayd uses the httpmail protocol used by ms outlook to download mail, so it does not have to request whole html webpages for every email and works much faster. It also allows you to get them directly into whatever POP3 mail program you are using such as Kmail.
Incidentally, I wrote a substantial reply on the topic of configuring hotwayd here:
If you are using Suse 10, probably you are using xinetd, which is the internet superserver on your machine that is going to activate hotwayd. There is a file included with the hotwayd source called hotwayd.xinetd I think, with an example xinetd configuration:
#only_from = 192.168.0.0/24
disable = no
type = unlisted
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = nobody
groups = yes
server = /usr/sbin/hotwayd
#server_args = -p http://proxy:8080
port = 110
Add the above to the xinetd config file, and restart xinetd. Do make sure that the binary "hotwayd" is indeed located in /usr/sbin/hotwayd as it appears near the end of the above block of text. xinetd need to have the correct path to hotwayd. Try "whereis hotwayd" and it should tell you where it is. Make sure they match.
After saving the changes, you need to restart xinetd. In Suse, according to what google turned up, you should use "rcxinetd restart" Then try "telnet 127.0.0.1 110" and you should get:
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK POP3 hotwayd v0.8.4 -> The POP3-HTTPMail Gateway. Server on armada active.
If you do, it should be working. Set up you mail program with login as [firstname.lastname@example.org] and the server as 127.0.0.1 and port 110
