Is it possible to email POP3 emails to MSN webmail? I'm doing this to send a card from Mail to a MSN user.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if I understand your question.

Are you trying to retrieve mail from a POP3 server?

You can email anything you want, to anybody?
Just forward/send the email to him?

A Windows Live Mail e-mail address -- to use its proper new name -- is just like any other e-mail address; you can send to blahblah@hotmail.com with Apple Mail, Eudora, Thunderbird, Outlook, whatever. You just can't retrieve e-mail from a Windows Live Mail address via POP3 unless you pay for the privilege, or use an after-market tool (such as Mail Forward) to transfer your mail to a POP3 or IMAP capable e-mail system.

EDIT: Nevermind. Problem solved. Thanks.

I don't really see what was stopping you from doing that?

I thought that you could retrieve msn mail directly by using the httpmail plugin for the Mail app ?
I'm doing it with my hotmail account.
