If you are using Outlook Express to access your Hotmail email, please note.
On 1 September 2009, Microsoft will cease the DAV protocol used by Outlook
Express, Microsoft Outlook, and Entourage to access Hotmail; in its place
Hotmail has implemented POP3 and SMTP access. Alternative is to download
and install Windows Live Mail client. It is a free application, part of
the Windows Live web applications and services, and, because it changes how
email is stored locally, does not carry the 2GB storage limitation à la Outlook
Express and Outlook (pre Outlook 2003 versions).
For more information and details on how to change email settings to enable
POP3 access, please read:
