I installed SP2 but have found that my mail notifications
alert me to my Outlook Express email account and not
Hotmail as before. Is it possible to change the alerts to
my Hotmail email account?

Greetings Steve,

The Windows Messenger version within SP2 does not have support for Add-ins which is required
for Hotmail support within Windows Messenger. As such, in order to get this functionality
back, you'll either need to downgrade to the previous version of Windows Messenger
(http://www.microsoft.com/windows/messenger/download.asp) or use MSN Messenger instead
(http://messenger.msn.com/Download).
