Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector

Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector 


Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector (formerly named Microsoft Office Outlook Connector) is a free add-in for Microsoft Outlook that allows users to access Windows Live Hotmail or Office Live Mail accounts through Microsoft Outlook.

With this add-in, one can access e-mail messages and contacts in any Hotmail account for free. In version 12, access to tasks and notes and online synchronization with MSN Calendar is only available to MSN subscribers of paid premium accounts.
Outlook Connector works with only Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 in Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Outlook Connector uses DeltaSync, a proprietary Microsoft communications protocol.

Outlook Hotmail Connector enables you to use your Live Hotmail accounts within Outlook:

    * Read and send your Office Live Mail/Windows Live Hotmail e-mail messages.
    * Manage your contacts in Windows Live Hotmail.
    * Use advanced options for blocking junk e-mail messages.
    * Manage multiple e-mail accounts in one place.
    * Manage, and synchronize multiple calendars, including shared calendars to Windows Live Calendar from Outlook.

If you use the Outlook Hotmail Connector with Outlook 2010 you gain these additional benefits:

    * Your Safe Sender List/Blocked sender list/Safe Recipient lists are synchronized between Outlook and Hotmail.
    * Send/receive works like your other Outlook accounts.
    * Your Hotmail account status appears in the Outlook status bar.
    * Rules work with the Hotmail account in Outlook even if it’s not your primary account.

You can follow same steps on Windows 7 and Windows XP
