    A friend that has just "switched" asked me to set up Hotmail through iMail for him. Never having used Hotmail I'm not sure if this is possible...

    If it is how do you configure it/is there a web page that describes it?

    erm...

    yeah i do...i thought it was all iX...

    I found the answer I think. Seems that only outlook express can play with hotmail. unless you want to install weird scripts and such...

    Anyway I think I sold him .Mac instead...

    Thanks all...

    check out the httpmail plugin for Mail. Just to to version tracker and type in hotmail you'll see it. Follow the install instructions(it's important) and it'll work like a charm.
