hiya, one my old pc i used outlook express for both my blueyonder and hotmail email which i loved as it had both emails delivered to the one place. problem is i bought a new pc and its got vista with windows mail pre installed. i've tried setting up windows mail for my hotmail account and it doesn't allow it. do i need to use the web now for my hotmail or is there a way around this. any suggestions?

Vista mail currently does not support HTTP Mail (which Hotmail is - Your Blueyonder account is POP3, totally different).

You will need to download a program called Windows Live Mail, which is a seperate program to Windows Mail, to get the ability to get Hotmail emails outside of the web based interface.

Hope that helps.

Or use outlook and use the "Hotmail extender"
