No more hotmail through OE?

Just got a message saying I can no longer get my hotmail through OE. Is this for real? Is there a workaround?

Re: No more hotmail through OE?

If you had an hotmail address for a long time, then they will still honor it if you use OE.  That's what it said in the email that I got and I can still use OE to get my hotmail.  Here is the email:

Dear MSN Member,

Recently, Hotmail® announced that in order to improve customer experience and reduce spam and junk e-mail abuse on MSN® services, Hotmail will no longer allow new e-mail accounts to be accessed via Microsoft® Office Outlook® and Outlook Express.

We are pleased to inform you that because you are an existing and valued customer, at this time your current Hotmail and MSN account(s) are exempt from this restriction and you will be able to continue enjoying access to those accounts from Outlook or Outlook Express. However, any new Hotmail or MSN accounts you create will not be accessible via Outlook or Outlook Express.

As for the new accounts, there will be NO way to get around this.

Then you are lucky. I have had my account for about 3 years and I cannot access it any longer. I hate using hotmail without OE!

Re: No more hotmail through OE?

If I couldn't use OE with my Hotmail account, then it would be time to get rid of it.  I have had my account nearly 5 years.  But you can PAY to use Outlook with Hotmail.  I didn't include all of the message because I didn't think that was your intent of posting here.
 
Because you actively use Outlook or Outlook Express to access one or more of your MSN Hotmail or MSN e-mail accounts, this could be the ideal time to consider subscribing to our powerful new
e-mail service - Microsoft Office Outlook Live.

As an Outlook Live subscriber, not only can you get uninterrupted access to your MSN e-mail accounts from Outlook, but you will also enjoy many other benefits.

 
I believe that it is $59.95USD for one year.  A little high for me.

Thanks Bay Wolf. That's a little steep for me too, especially when you convert it to canadian dollars. Guess I'll just have to live with it.

It's more like $20 a year with a special for $15 for a limited time. It's MSN Premium that's more. http://join.msn.com/?pgmarket=en-us&page=hotmail/es&ST=1&RU=http%3a%2f%2fjoin.msn.com%2f%3fpage%3dmi...

That is Hotmail Plus.  Not Outlook live
