Email Application Compatible with Hotmail


Are there any linux client email apps that are compatible to use with hotmail.

ie - skip browsing hotmail window after hotmail window in a broswer and just use an email app.

Well many moons ago i know there was some shareware app(s) on Windows to get such a POP out of Hotmail. But those nologner exist as far as I know...and that's on WIndows. So I think you're not going to find such an app. unless you write one yourself. And to be honest Internet Explorer barely works with Hotmail, farless for a Linux app.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

you can download your emails from hotmail with gotmail (perl script) http://sourceforge.net/projects/gotmail. works fine, very easy to install and light. you can read the downloaded emails in your email client (kmail, evo...).

i know there is another application: hotwayd, but i never used it.

Of course, this could be dodgy as far as microsoft is concerned. you could pay them for the code.... or not.

You guys are right!

As a linux user, why the hell am I supporting Microsoft by using Hotmail. What is another good online email account? Preferably Free?

(I do not want to be restricted to my ISP email address in case I change ISPs in the future).

do a google. for free online webstuff. Do you have a website? you could be my@mysite.com if you want. (research, however, is a must for this)
LQ has email (think).
discocow.com had email, however the guy died. Seriously. he got electrocuted. so I don't know about that one.
GOOGLE is your friend.

Lots of choices out there that's for sure. Take a look at getting a domain name and a mailbox. It's not that expensive and it's all yours.
