Default Do MSN POP3 still work?

for the past 2 days I can't receive email from my 2 msn accounts with incredimail. so I add the mailman extension to firefox. it can't acces my msn accounts either (gmail still works).

I remember last year that msn stopped pop3 to new users. have they stopped it altogether?

They havent stopped it altogether. But you have to be in the Windows Live Desktop Mail Beta to be able to access it now.

I am in the WLMD Beta and i am still able to get my hotmail thru POP3 access. But i think they discontinued it for other email clients.

Sometimes there is a nice little icon at the buttom of the screen. But most of the time i have to load it up and check manually. Hench the Beta tag.

this sh*t is for the birds and I'm not a pigeon. I'm tranfering all of my stuff to gmail.

I use to so many things with incredimail. that's live thing is basically the same thing as msn.com
