“How to Send and Receive Hotmail from Thunderbird” is a step-by-step tutorial on setting up Mozilla Thunderbird to work with Microsoft’s Hotmail e-mail service. The tutorial is extremely detailed with screenshots of each step in the process.
Warning! This tutorial uses a method called POP3 to check your e-mail. As Thunderbird downloads your e-mail to your computer, the messages will be removed from the Hotmail servers. If you do not want to remove your e-mail from the Hotmail servers, do not follow these directions.
