Are you certain that your Hotmail account supports POP E-mail?
Cheers,

If you have a premium (paid for) version on Hotmail, you should be able to configure OE to work with hotmail. If you have the standard Hotmail, you cannot use OE. Well, there is a program you can use to make the two work together. But considering that on June 30, Hotmail will be severing access to the Hotmail Inbox from Outlook Express And right now, I'm thinking the add on program may now work anymore. Hotmail is encouraging it's users to install and use Windows Live Mail if they want an email client to access mail.

You should have received a notice from the hotmail team about the change.

Thanks to all your replies.

John, can't figure out on how I can determine if my hotmail acct supports POP Email?What is POP Email?

Queen-Evie, Thanks for this news which I could have just possibly overlooked from inbox.
Sometime in november, I could remember I can freely access my hotmail account via OE.I used to configure my yahoo account and hotmail interchangeably to work with OE.However, only this past week I have seen some errors and no connection established from hotmail server.This could probably true.

Basically, what I was trying to do is to experience different functionalities OE offers like accessing several email accounts all at the same time, adding signatures to messages or customizing an email.Hope you can direct me to a tutorial site about this, thanks.

Even if you get Hotmail to work OE, on June 30th the pipeline will be cut off.
You could give Windows Mail client a try. After reading your initial post, I decided to install WLM.
My hotmail account was automatically added to it, all of my messages, folders and address book.
I then set it up to work with my ISP account. The jury is still out on WLM vs. OE.
I do like being able to access both mail accounts from one place. My only complaints are that there is no way for me to keep my ISP and hotmail address books seperate and attachments take to long to open. For now, I'll keep using WLM for a while longer, with the option of going back to OE if I want to switch back.
