Mail Client that supports HTTP (Hotmail, MSN)

I haven't been able to find a Linux Mail client that supports HTTP Protocols...

Do they exist?

I really hate going to to check my mail, and I would like to use a client like I do in Windows..

Thanks in advance.

(I've tried evolution, kmail, and mozilla mail and a few others)

Some of the package links were down...

Thanks for the suggestion though.. Are there any that are pretty simple to install and don't require me to go to point A, then B, then CVS this and wait 10 hours, then do this, etc.

I use hotway in order to access my hotmail mails. In works fine. To send mail I just have to go through my Internet Service Provider SMTP

I can't remeber how I install it but I think that I just folowed those instructions
My inetd.conf file is located in the /etc directory. I believe it will be the same for xinetd.conf.

good luck
