Add Your Other Email Accounts to Hotmail

Don’t you find it terribly annoying when you have to sign into multiple services just to check your email? Wouldn’t it be a lot easier if your email client would provide support for multiple email accounts? Of course it would and the Windows Live Hotmail team know it better than anyone. That is why they fitted Hotmail with the capability to check other email accounts, including Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail and Gmail.

The option to add other email accounts to Hotmail has been rolled out to customers in the UK, France, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Japan, and Germany earlier this year and now it has been also rolled out to customers in the US of A, Canada and Brazil. According to the Windows Live Hotmail Team, the list of countries will increase as time goes by, especially since user feedback has been “very positive.”


“We are happy to announce that Hotmail customers in the US, Canada, and Brazil can now add other e-mail accounts to Hotmail!* No need to sign into multiple services to check all your messages on the web. Instead, you can see any POP-enabled e-mail account (including Yahoo! Mail (Plus), AOL Mail, and Gmail) right from your Hotmail account. You can put all of your messages together in your inbox or each e-mail account in its own folder, your choice. We hope this feature will help you simplify your digital life!” explained the Windows Live Hotmail Team.

To add other email accounts to Hotmail, you have to follow a simple 3 step tutorial:
Step 1. Look at the left-hand side of the inbox and click “Add an e-mail account.”
Step 2. Type in the address and password for the email account you want to add. Click “Next.”
Step 3. Select the location where you want to messages to go. Click “Save.”

Please note that this will not work if you have POP turned off in the email service you want to add. Enabling POP is a imperative and you need to do this, even though it will require you to access the email service you want to add to Hotmail and change the settings.
