The POP3 server address is always going to be mail. followed by the domain.

So... hotmails is mail.hotmail.com

However, hotmails POP service is only available for paying members or "valued" members.

- Note: I have removed your other thread which is similiar to this to the spam can.

You can use POP with Hotmail for free with Mozilla Thunderbird and the Webmail extension. This will also work for Yahoo mail, AOL, Gmail, Lycos and others.

I'm pretty sure POP3 access is only allowed for the paying people. I remember a while back that I tried to download my hotmail messages to Thunderbird and never got it to work... maybe I just didn't try hard enough. And the mail.domain.com thing is not always the case, so I didn't think to try that. I dunno, maybe they changed it - I'll try again later.

I think it depends on when you originally set up your hotmail account and whether or not you were using it with an email client at the time. A couple of years ago I could use my hotmail account with Outlook Express. About a year later I made a new hotmail account and it wouldn't work with any of my email software, even though there was no problem using the software with my old address. A couple of months ago, after letting my old hotmail expire, I re-instated it but from that time on, it would't work in Outlook.

So, I think, you need to have an old, still active account that was being used with a client before they changed the rule, for it to still be free.

But that's just my guesstimate of the situation.

Take care,
Eyvind
