I have a question and am hoping someone can answer it for me. I have been using my hotmail acct with IM for the last 2/3yrs with no issues, thank god. A friend of mine uses gmail with IM and is thinking of going with Hotmail as gmail gives her way to
many problems. I have tried to help her set up her hotmail acct within IM and she keeps getting an error message, what that is
I do not know ( Its kinda hard to help her thru emails ) Well anyways....... I came across this article posted in the IM HELP CENTER I will post it below.
Q: How do I configure my Hotmail or MSN email account to work with IncrediMail?
A: On October 1st 2004, Microsoft blocked access to Hotmail and MSN email accounts used in email clients such as Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Eudora or IncrediMail. Anyone who wishes to use a Hotmail or MSN account in any email client is required to pay Microsoft for this service.
If you would like to continue using your Hotmail or MSN email account in IncrediMail, you will have to pay Microsoft for their new service. On the other hand, if you would like to continue using an email account free of charge in IncrediMail, you can open a free POP3 email account with HotPOP, or any other POP3 email account provider you wish to use.
Is this legit? The more I read it the more it seems like something fishy. I have never ever seen this message in the help area of IM. My friend is using Win7/IMxe I believe. I mean I set up my hotmail acct way after 10/1/04. Im using WinVista
w IM Premium, and as I said, I never had any issues when adding my hotmail acct into IM. Can someone help me please?
Thank you Tina xoxo
