I seem to recall Hotmail stopped supporting Pop3 several years ago now, only supporting their http protocol for access via Outlook (and a few other clients). Now it appears that they may be removing that access for their new Outlook Live subscribtion service. The arguement being that such advanced services should be paid for and that similar services have the same policy.
Shame really especially as gmail has just started providing pop3 and RSS support. I really like Hotmail for all it's faults but losing standard outlook integration may just kill it for me. Last time I was burned by hotmail was with the calender. I used to use it all the time then it went to being a paid for service so I lost all the personal data I had in it - now it's free again but there's almost zero chance I'll trust that with my data again.
Now I find that I may no longer be able to archive important emails via outlook (which costs a fair bit in itself) with the potential to lose valuable data agian.
Still can't complain too much, especially now we have 250mb storage and they've got rid of those damn screwy framed hyperlinks in my mails (whoever thought that was a good idea).
