Office XP's Outlook can be used to get your hotmail email. But behind the scenes when you try to get your email
it actually redirects you to
http://officeupdate.microsoft.com/office/redirect/10/OutlookHotmailNav.asp?viewonly=sum_identifiying_numbers=some_more_identifying_numbers_separated_by_pipes
Now why do MS need to connect to Hotmail thru office update site :roll:
do they need to go thru some secret *** *ole gates?

Yeah! The same happens with me. Moreover, when this folder for Hotmail Inbox opens, it shows a blank white page. And when I right click Hotmail Inbox Properties and then "Homepage", it shows that the homepage for inbox is "...\LOCALS~1\Temp\olf7C8.tmp.html" and cannot be changed.
Is this a trick to prevent illegal usage of Outlook XP?

I use Eudora myself (available as adware--and fairly unobtrusive adware as that...)
Of course, I would use Pine if I could....
