To Setup a Hotmail Account in Outlook Express to work with SpoonProxy

To check a Hotmail account with SpoonProxy you'll need to run Outlook Express Socksified. We'd recommend Hummingbird Socks for the most transparent connection.

The reason for this is that the Hotmail connection configuration in OE only allows for the hotmail HTTP mail connection (which points to a specific asp page, not an IP address, as illustrated below.)

Socks solves the problem of sending and receiving email from the asp mail server.   It is hoped that Microsoft will make this easier and add support for other web-based email services to Outlook Express (Yahoo, Lycos, etc.)in a future release.
