With Windows Live Hotmail recently enabling POP3 support (see this article), the web site (blog) “the How-To Geek” has provided step-by-step illustration on how to use your Gmail account to send and receive Hotmail [ CLICK HERE ] .
Addendum: As a followup to this posting, if you are an “inbox.com” susbscriber, I would also like to note that the Windows Live Hotmail POP3 settings can be introduced into your “inbox.com” email account settings. Inbox.com is an excellent web email client resource, with multiple features (e.g. 5GB email, online file storage, organizer, photo management, notes). Inbox.com has a setting where you can pull down your email from multiple POP3 accounts. I personally use inbox.com to harbor (backup) my multiple email accounts.
