Note: you'll need to download and install the Outlook Hotmail Connector on your PC (piece of software to let this webmail provider and email program "talk" to each other). • Open the official download page.
• Click on the first "Download Now" button, unless you know that you're using 64-bit Outlook 2010. • Click on the Download button on the next page.
• Choose to Run (or Launch/Open, depending on the web browser you are using).
• Click Next, accept the terms, and click Install. (If it offers "Repair" or "Remove" as choices, you or someone else already installed it on your computer - click Cancel, you are done!)
• Click Finish; restart Outlook if it was running.
Tip: messages you send from the web browser version of Hotmail will show the name you picked when you created your account (but you can change that display name in just 4 clicks!)
