Hello All-

First off, this is not one of the 'needs to be looked at right now by an uber tech guru posts that the world depends on', so if you've got better things to do or more needy people to help, by all means :whistling:. Anywho, my name is Garret, and I am under the impression that if I can set up my outlook software, I will magically not have to check all 40 of my seperate email accounts, but rather will be able to have all my mail sent to one inbox automatically. This sounds wonderful! However, I'm thinking that my lack of having a 'pop3' inbox or mailbox thinger is thwarting my plans. What is a pop3 mailbox? where do i get one? do i need anything else to make outlook get my mail from yahoo and hotmail accounts? i've never been successful in trying to use outlook, but i'd like to.

Thanks in advance,
Garret

if all your emails are internet mail accounts...you'll need to check the help sections on each of those pages to see if they have a mathod for use with outlook (such as a pop server or something like that) with hotmail you can set up outlook to check it by setting up a new account ussing http (hotmail is by default allowed in outlook as microsoft owns it)...you may also be able to use http for the other mail accounts if they have an http server listed for them
