Do you want to use Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007 to check your Windows Live Mail
(formerly known as Hotmail)?
You used to be able to configure HTTP through Outlook, but then need a paid subscription to do so. However, with the new
Microsoft Office Outlook Connector Beta
, you can now download, read, and compose Windows Live Mail emails for free.
If you do not have a paid subscription, the Outlook Connector Beta enables you to use your Live accounts within Outlook to read and send your Office Live Mail/Windows Live Hotmail e-mail messages, manage your Live Mail contacts, use advanced options for blocking
junk email messages, and manage multiple email accounts in one place.
With a paid subscription, the Outlook Connector Beta also enables the ability to manage, share, and synchronize your Windows Live Calendar in Outlook and access your Tasks and Notes. The beta is available for download
