Some programs only recognize my old msn e-mail address. How from hotmail can I access and retreive those sent from those sites? Thank you.
Edit:unless you like spam...you shouldn't post your email adress on an open forum

Hello Raider8 and welcome to geeks to go!

I don't think you can configure hotmail to go out and get email messages from other email accounts, you have to do it the other way around. From hotmail's Options > Send and receive mail from other e-mail accounts menu:

Receive mail from other accounts without POP3 access.
To receive mail from other accounts without POP3 access, go to your other account and set up automatic forwarding. You’ll be asked what e-mail address you want to forward to—enter your Windows Live Hotmail address. Learn more

To make sure that your forwarded mail always gets to your inbox, you should add the other account to Windows Live Hotmail. Choose the “Add an address to send mail from” button at the top of this page.

Hope this helps.
