Hotmail in seamonkey mail?
« on: May 19, 2009, 11:02:16 am »
Is there a way to setup my hotmail account in Seamonke Mail and newsgroups? Can someone write or direct me to a tutorial?

Only if Hotmail supports pop3/smtp access, like Gmail and Yahoo do.

The free hotmail service does not support POP3 access.
I've tried it... You only get it if you "Upgrade" to a paid account.

Which is rediculous IMO, because other providers, such as the forementioned gmail and yahoo offer such features along with a ton of storage (for email) for free.

There were (are?) some extensions for Thunderbird which will allow email client access to Hotmail. The latest Thunderbird is in the testing repo, so it may be worth a try.

Have a look here:
