    Does anyone know how to create a personalised e-mail address? For example [email protected]

        In outlook:
        Go to tools > e-mail accounts > add a new email account > http > than fill in your info and press [next]

          You can have any POP3 account managed by MS Outlook or Outlook Express

            Wont work. Cannot do POP3 forwarding with hotmail as they dont have a secure server (https).

              That's why I said tick "http", Hotmail doesn't use POP3..

              It does work, I have it working anyway.

                  Eh you're right about it not being "secure", but it's not like POP was any more capable in that respect. The protocols differ slightly but the data is the same, and most POP servers do not use encryption anyway. As a matter of fact, most e-mails travel over the Internet as plain text (like just about everything else).


                  Oh, and from what I understand, Hotmail does allow remote access from Outlook but for paying customers only (who on this planet would pay for an Hotmail account?).
