Access Gmail in Windows Live Hotmail

To add a Gmail account to Windows Live Hotmail:

  • Make sure POP access is enabled for your Gmail account.
  • Select Options | More Options in your Windows Live Hotmail Inbox.
  • Follow the Send and receive mail from other e-mail accounts link under Manage your account.
  • Click Add an e-mail account under You can receive mail from these accounts.
  • Type your Gmail address under E-mail address:.
  • Enter your Gmail password under Password:.
  • Click Next.
  • Choose whether you want Gmail messages to appear in your default Windows Live Hotmail Inbox, in an existing or in a new folder under When mail is sent to [email protected], where do you want it to go?.
  • Pick a color for Gmail messages under How would you like unread messages for [email protected] to appear?.
