How can I point my msn to hotmail instead of the default mail program?

    After doing a routine upgrade to my XP home PC my MSN
    messenger now points to my outlook account versus the
    hotmail account. So I now have to log ion specifically to
    hotmail to check messages.

    Is there a way to switch this back to hotmail and still us
    outlook as my default mail program?

    Thanks,

    Nick

  2. Greetings Nick,

    It sounds like you're using Windows Messenger, which was upgraded when you upgraded to SP2
    (and no longer has support for Hotmail).

    As such, in order to get this functionality back, you'll either need to downgrade to the
    previous version of Windows Messenger:

    Or simply use MSN Messenger instead:
