One of the great things about Outlook is that you can check all your email accounts from one location. So if you have a hotmail account, you can add it to Outlook and therefore check your emails via Outlook instead of a web browser.
To add a hotmail account within Outlook 2010:
- First, you need to install the hotmail connector. You can download the hotmail connector here.
- Once you’ve installed the connector, open Outlook. From the File menu, click Add Account.
- Enter your hotmail account information, including your name, hotmail account name, and password.
- Click Next.
- Outlook automatically sets up your hotmail account. Click Finish.
