Why not use Ihug Web Mail while you are away, that is what it is there for.

If you really want them sent to your Hotmail account then Ihug can setup a forwarding for you but I can't really see the point in doing that.

Interesting considering he doesn't even mention OE in his post.

The reference was to Jim B (who thomas even quoted) who does not mention OE.

Thanks for trying though.

Dear boy,the fact remains Jim is the resident guru on O/E and that is to what I was referring.I have no objections to to being questioned,but please do your homework;)

It is possible but you will have to keep your computer online while you are on Holiday.

So I just recommend you use ihug’s web mail.

You can set up a mail rule I suppose to forward incoming mail to another address, but it means you'd need either ADSL, or to leave your internet online and auto-redialling (in case you get cut off), as it would only receive while you're online.. and therefore forward only when you're online and have received the mail to be forwarded.... Make sense?

+1 for using Ihugs WebMail

+1 for my post-count ;-)

Try this:
Open up OE
Click Tools
-Message Rules
-Mail

In the "Conditions" scroll to the bottom and choose "For all messages"

In box two, choose "Forward it to people"

And in box 3, click on the blue "people" and insert your hotmail address.

Dont forget Hotmail has a two-meg limit so clear it regularly

And leave your PC connected at home to send/receive (set it to do it every couple of minutes).

Cheers


Chill.

Are you seriously suggesting leaving the computer on and dialing automatically unattended for extended periods while away from home and in another country.
I suppose you would go on holiday and leave your TV going as well.

I don't believe Windows is reliable enough to do that but regardless what is the point as it is just as easy to bring up Ihug Webmail as it is to access Hotmail.
