There should be an image here!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:

  1. First, you need to install the hotmail connector. You can download the hotmail connector here.
  2. Once you’ve installed the connector, open Outlook. From the File menu, click Add Account.
  3. Enter your hotmail account information, including your name, hotmail account name, and password.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Outlook automatically sets up your hotmail account. Click Finish.
