    I prefer a completely different mail client myself, POSTBOX.

    The functionality you are looking for is not provided by *any* mail clients. It sounds like you're using POP3. Don't. Use IMAP or ActiveSync instead; it does what you're trying to accomplish. If you are using Hotmail as your primary address, I doubt it supports IMAP and, IIRC, Microsoft has only enabled ActiveSync for mobile devices so you may be SOL unless you switch providers.

    That won't help him, he needs to set up an IMAP service.

    I set up my IMAP account to log in the POP3 account and grab any mail there. Then I use the IMAP account to keep everything synced.

    I don't use gmail (don't like their snooping and privacy thing), so I dunno if it provides that capability. You may be able to go into hotmail and just forward everything.

    Gmail can do it, I have it setup to grab mail from my POP3 e-mail by my ISP.

    OP, you simply need to setup your gmail as IMAP and have it grab hotmail's e-mails.
