Trying to send and receive Windows Live (previously Hotmail) email from within Outlook used to be a confusing affair. Some said it couldn’t be done, others could sync using POP3 and some could only sync with POP3 if they had paid for the premium service. [If I have got this wrong – please don’t bother to correct me – it’s hardly relevant and a little bit nerdy to be honest].
Whatever…. that is all in the past and you can now banish the Outlook syncing blues by using the latest Microsoft Office Outlook Connector.
I have tried it with both Windows Live and Hotmail – and it works a treat. There are stories on the net that it also works with Googlemail/Gmail – not that you really need that functionality – see my earlier post.
