Script that connects to Hotmail and forwards emails.

I'm looking for some kind of script that will connect to my hotmail account and forward all my old emails to me. Since it will no longer work with Thunderbird unless I pay I at least want to get a backup of my old emails. I would do it myself but I'm not much of a coder. Anybody have any ideas?

I actually kind if forgot about it cause I'vebeen busy but I did find something that works specifically for hotmail. Check out "gotmail" or "getlive"
