How to access Hotmail from Mozilla Thunderbird

If you have a Hotmail account and you're tired of accessing it through the annoying and slow MSN Live web page, maybe you should consider accessing your Hotmail account through your e-mail client.

Using Mozilla Thunderbird? Not a problem. The WebMail extension will solve that problem.

It installs a "bridge" between your e-mail client and the Hotmail server, which allows you to access and send e-mails through your Hotmail account, directly on Thunderbird.

If you're unable to run the services, try changing the values of the ports to values above 1024 (as shown in the picture).

I know what you're going to say next: "why do you still use Hotmail anyway?". I was asking myself the same question ...
