    Linux KMail

    Does anyone have any idea how I would be able to use my hotmail account with KMail (like Outlook, but for Linux)? I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks.

    I don't think you can. Evidently hotmail set something up so that you can only get POP3 access through Outlook and Outlook Express. I hate both programs...but that's what I found on a website after a week of downloading and configuring mail clients a few months ago.
    Away.

    you could set all of your hotmail to forward to another nix friendly email address than just access that adress. People send to your hotmail and u get it at blah@blah.com

    I haven't seen any feature like that (set all of your hotmail to forward) in hotmail.com, did you?

    Really!!!!!!!!! I did not know. Are you sure? What is that? I was looking for such an opportunity since 1996.
