Hello.
I have 2 accounts in hotmail. One downloaded the folders. one will not. the one that downloaded is a hotmail acct, the other one is a free msn web based acct. No matter what I do it will not work. is there something that I am doing wrong?
I finally got OE working by downloading it again. Boy....XP is a pain in the A$$.
If you have any tips, please let me know.

Both POP3- and web-based MSN mail accounts can be accessed in OE. See
these links for instructions on...

Configuring your POP3 MSN Account in OE

Manually Configuring Security Settings

Using Other SMTP Servers (POP3 Mail) as an MSN Subscriber
http://supportservices.msn.com/us/content/qanda/_email_...

Anyone can access MSN's E-mail Security Wizard/Tool at this page:
http://supportservices.msn.com/us/smtptool/default.asp. It should only
be
used by MSN POP3 mail customers; anyone using MSN 8 or web-based (HTTP)
mail
should not use it. The page also gives links to other pages detailing
how
to manually change e-mail security settings in OE; the caveats above
still
apply. Regular Hotmail account holders should not use these settings or
tools.
