Fetching Your Hotmail Into Normal Mailbox

| Comments

I’ve always wondered if there was a solution to this and since I keep getting emails that I miss because they go into my hotmail account, I thought I’d see if there was anything out there to do the job.

The thing I found was a perl script called gotmail which you can run on the command line (or cron) and it will fetch your Hotmail email and dump it into your mailbox.

I currently have this set up to fetch any new email in my hotmail mailbox, shove it through my local spamassassin and stick it in my Inbox - which seems to be doing what I want.
