Hi Muzz.

I suspect it uses the pop protocol for Hotmail, I'll give it a look at as 
WLM does cause me issues at times, however I need the synchronisation 
features as my Hotmail account is my primary email address.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I don't know about that, but it works fine with my hotmail account!
