    Apparently, you can't. It's not POP or IMAP, strictly HTTP, and this can be found in the Hotmail FAQ's:

    Whoa whoa whoa. There is a way, and I've been using it since I swtiched to Macs (Panther,) and also when I bought my new Intel last year. It's called httpmail. Works just as advertised (and no more going to Hotmail to check it!)

    httpmail does not work on all types of hotmail accounts. If httpmail cannot work for your account try freepops instead. The latest incarnation, 0.2.0, is easy to set up and run on a Mac. The hotmail plugin (which comes with the Mac package) works for most types of hotmail accounts.

    You're right, I forgot about that. For whatever reason, httpmail works with my account, but freepops won't. Thanks for the reminder.
