I do know of a program called gotmail that supposedly allows acces to hotmail. Never used it though. http://freshmeat.net/projects/gotmail/?topic_id=28

Nice BigNate, very nice!. That would be my chance to use only one e-mail account (from www.myrealbox) and get everything from one place. I'm still about to see something that peoples don't know in this forum

Thanks mate!.

I hate mplayer. I never get it to work right. I am happy with XMMS and xine though.

I use xine for that. You do know you need some some extra packages for that as DVD's need to be decrypted. If you are into apt you can apt-get them, although their names escape me now

this thread has gone seriously off topic.

anyway I use kmail.
tried thunderbird but found it irritating - slow & complicated
tried it so I could use it to keep one mail file on my dual boot laptop which could check the mails from both os's, couldn't get it working so gave up.
evolution - I use that too, but still prefer kmail as kmail is less complicated


used outlook for many years on windows & still use it at work
I think the hotmail checking think is a microsoft "#~!*?" - I have been unable to check my other (non microsoft non hotmail) web based accounts using outlook etc etc

anyway that's the end of my little monologue about mail clients

I have been trying it out on a Suse FTP install I am also trying out.
Thunderbird is very nice. Download it to a directory in a user folder. Run "./thunderbird" as the user.

I don't think I will get around to using it anytime soon.. Evolution does just fine for me.. so for now I have other things I want to get working.. like this DVD player in Mplayer...
