    I don't use it, but some have had success with the httpmail plugin

    For others it has been hit or miss
    Performance with gmail or yahoo seems to much more reliable

    If you do a search on "httpmail" with MRoogle you will find several helpful discussions

    httpmail only works with older accounts, or so i am told. MS disabled the functionality on newer accounts.

    switch to gmail. there's themes, sms texting, video chat, im chat, etc. so much better than everything other email provider out there except mobileme. but, i think you could forward your email and set your mail to that forwarded address.
