So I finally made the switch to Firefox. I created a new hotmail account last night and found out that you can no longer use Hotmail with OE anymore. You have to pay for that priviledge now. So I figured what't the point in using MS' shitty products anymore? Too bad Thunderbird doesn't work with Hotmail. Does it work with Google mail or anything other html mail?
Thunderbird is not some magical mail client that can do things that others cannot. It can access mailboxes via IMAP or POP like everything else. Most webmail cannot be accessed by either method. Gmail has POP access though, you just have to enable it in the Settings screen.
