    I have a yahoo account. I would like to run this through outlook which I have on my PC but do not currently use at all. Is this ppossible and if so how?

    Also, my girlfriend has a hotmail account. Could we run more than one account through outlook. and is there a best way to do eg so easy to switch between them etc??

    I do not know where to start !!

    Also found this in hotmail help section:

    Access your MSN Hotmail account from Microsoft Outlook
    To protect our users from the increasing amount of unsolicited junk e-mail or spam sent from MSN Hotmail accounts through Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express, we have reluctantly had to restrict the new use of Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express to subscribers.
    If you use Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, you can set up a separate Inbox for your Hotmail account within Outlook. This option is currently available for Microsoft Windows operating systems only.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In Outlook, click the Tools menu, and then click E-mail Accounts.
    Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
    Click HTTP, and then click Next.
    Type your user and sign-in information, and then make sure Hotmail is selected as the HTTP Mail Service Provider.
    To help protect your privacy, do not select the Remember password check box unless you are the sole person with access to the program. If you do not select the Remember password check box, you will be asked to enter your password in step 5.
    Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
    Click Next, and then click Finish.
