These are a dime a dozen, but what cripples most of them is their inability to send mail, since fixing up a way to translate SMTP requests into Hotmail actions is harder.

Hotpop manages this admirably (and is free too). Izymail does it too, with IMAP to boot, but is ridiculously expensive and the shareware version is horribly crippled.
