I've been a long time hotmail user but, I recently discovered Gmail and it is so much better. I really dont want to abandon my old email because it is linked to a bunch of important things. So, is there anyway that I can forward hotmail messages ( when they arrive) to my gmail?

Forwarding using that method is only for hotmail to hotmail. Not to gmail

I solved my problem.
The solution was here using Gmail's Mail Fetcher feature

Is there anyway that I mark my hotmail account as active so it doesnt get deleted after a long period of time or do I have to log on every once in a while
