No I think not Jaffer Hotmail is web based only thus there is no smtp server to transfer the Emails to your pc via Outlook.

You can, as Outlook has an HTTP option, but only with an older hotmail account, or one of the paid accounts, still pick up mine using Outlook. :)

LOL, you can't of course do it with a new account though, as I found when I let one of mine lapse and renewed it. :)
