"* Mozilla's integrated e-mail client allows users to check Web-based IMAP e-mail clients (such as Yahoo mail, Netscape's Webmail, and Microsoft's Hotmail)"

Mozilla doesn't yet support SSL, and I'm fairly certain that Hotmail requires SSL to login.

I don't think Hotmail is IMAP compliant... If it is, or even if it isn't - can someone tell me how to set up Mozilla to read hotmail e-mail?

This sounds like it should really be a *future* expected feature. But I imagine Hotmail will change it's download procedure often - just so anything that isn't Outlook will not be able to reliably download Hotmail email. Joseph Elwell.
