Hotmail and yahoo these mailing systems are not actual Mailing applications. They are just HTTP applications. Using ordinary HTTP protocol they implementing mailing system. So They dont follow any mail protocols like IMAP and POP3. If they provide such an interface we can access. For example Yahoo we can enable pop access. Hotmail is a special case. It can be accessed through outlookExpress because of these two or microsoft products(but there is no any standard protocol)
If I'm wrong any one correct me.
Thank you
