Re: mail HELP

You MAY be able to do it if you nab the MAC version of Outlook Express, then configure it for your hotmail account.

I'm not a mac guy, but I know there is a version of many of the microsoft programs that are ported over for the mac platform. There are more Mac users here that would be able to give you a definitive answer for Hotmail.

My other suggestion would be set up a free pop 3 account with your ISP, or get a Gmail account and set up whatever mail program you have, which i'd imagine there has to be an onboard mail handler.

Re: mail HELP

ditch hotmail and get gmail instead.

In mail.app:
Go to Mail menu
Select preferences
Select Accounts (second icon from the top left)
Click the "+" (plus sign) on the lower left corner
Follow onscreen instructions. (get your hotmail settings)
Done

For an alternate mail program:

hope that helps

edit: oops, I thought hotmail was a POP service. Might want to check this out instead:

Re: mail HELP

Did you sign up for a Gmail account?
If so, there are instructions that detailo specifically how to configure your mail client.
