Is there anything I can use to download my hotmail? I've recently become 
aware that hotmail uses about 200-300M just to display maybe 50 text subject
line in chromium even before spawning off another 100-200M of ad subframes.
On a system with less than a Gb of memory this means nothing runs. I guess I could
just say I need more memory but it is annoying not having any idea what it could possibly
do usefully with all that memory especially when the "mail" command and text ads would
work better. I have an old 'dohs install with outlook 2007 and "outlook connector" and 
want to download all my mail but it never seems to work reliably.
