    Are you just trying to receive email addressed to your hotmail account, with out having to goto hotmail.com and logging in?

    Account Type: IMAP4
    Incoming Mail Server:
    E-mail Address:
    User ID:
    Password:

    If you want to be able to accept hotmail through another mail client you are going to have to set it up as an HTTP connection and not a POP3.

    Once you do this you simply type your email address, username and password.

    Um, I am not sure what type of program you are working with but I would see if you can change the account type and if not see if you enter HTTP in the mail server or something like mail.hotmail.com and see if that works.

    What email client are you using in collage?

    If you can use outlook express as soon as you put a hotmail address in to a new account setup it fills in all the deatails for you, all you need to put in is your password

    I have used a perl script called Gotmail to grab hotmail and it works pretty good.
