That happens surprisingly often :-)

Never mind, I appreciate it.  Last I checked, there was no POP access to
hotmail.  This should make it possible for me to grab my wife's mail off
hotmail and stick it on my company mail.  I've been trying to get her to
switch (I particularly hate her using a hotmail account for company
business), but all her friends know the hotmail address.  As long as I can
POP it, I can make all her outbound mail use her company address.
