How To Configure Your Hotmail Account With Outlook 2010-dxperience

Software Microsoft Hotmail is arguably the best free web based email service that one can use. Additional features such as instant messaging, unlimited storage, file hosting services, etc have made sure that Hotmail is on par (if not superior to) other email service providers. But one significant feature that Hotmail lacks is support for POP3 or IMAP and STMP server access. Without this feature, users are unable to download mails to their desktop for offline viewing. Thankfully, Microsoft has provided support for Hotmail in the form of Microsoft Outlook. By merging Outlook and Hotmail, users will not only get to read mails when offline, but theyll also be relived of the hassle of opening up the web browser every time they wish to read their mail. The following guide will help you setup the latest version of Outlook, i.e. Microsoft Outlook 2010 to receive mails from your Hotmail account without the need to call up Hotmail support and ask for help.
