you cannot "fix" that problem.

once again, microsoft is in desperate need of money, despite their billions of dollars they already have hidden...

so they are trying to make you buy hotmail "plus" so you can use outlook express with hotmail.

TFB, my suggestion. Don't use hotmail unless you have to. Most ISPs come with a e-mail system that is POP3 capable. Use them. I find it works great. Hotmail should only be used gor MSN, if you use MSN. IMO
