    I have a MS Office Live Basic account. I gather this does not support the
    POP3 email system.

    Has anyone found a way to access such HTTP emails using Windows Mail as I
    don't want to change to Windows Live Mail if possible.

    If not, can anyone suggest any other options - other than direct access
    using a browser?

    Thanks,

  2. Does your email address end in @live.com?

    What is your objection to Windows Live Mail?

    Hi Gary

    Yes it does end in @live.com.

    I tried it before (on your recommendation I think!) but did not like the
    interface etc as much as Windows Mail - so uninstalled it. I guess it just
    comes down to personal preference...

    Regards,

  4. Sometimes it's a matter of choosing between the lesser of two evils. :)
    At least WLM will accommodate your @live.com account.

    Is there really no other alternative e.g. using FreePOPs with WM or even
    using Thunderbird?

  6. If there are alternatives to accommodating a http-based live.com
    account, I'm not aware of them.

    FreePOPs looks interesting... http://www.freepops.org/en/ - has anyone used
    it for what I want to do? It certainly appears to enable Hotmail to be
    accessed via Windows Mail.

    Also, I wonder if any of the email services which enable one to aggregate
    other providers' emails onto the same account, AND support POP3, would
    enable me to access my @live.com emails?

    Regards,
