    Replacement Email Client for Hotmail?


    I have two Hotmail accounts that I get POP access because they are
    grandfathered in.

    Windows Mail has done away with POP access for Hotmail. Is there a good free
    email client that runs under Vista that will do what Outlook Express did in
    XP?

    Mozilla Thunderbird with the Web Mail extension:

    If you have POP access, WM should be able to work.... shouldn't it?

    Mozilla is a malware. Works well in Ububtu though.
