POP your Hotmail emails with GMail

The Windows Live team have finally made POP3 available for everyone. The details are as follows:

POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 25)
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

The How-To-Geek has put together a nice little walk through for Gmail users to enable poping your Hotmail mails (and even sending them via Gmail). It took less than a minute to setup and get working – go on try it for yourself.
