hotmail?

I got my MAC in January and I haven't found a way to access hotmail yet.
I've since got a G-Mail account but I'd still like to go back & look at old e-mails and stuff.
Can anybody help me?

accessing your hotmail account has nothing to do with having a Mac. Or a new PC for that matter. Hotmail saves your emails and attachments to a remote server, not your computer. What you may be wondering is how do I get my bookmarks transferred from your old PC or Mac to the new Mac. Well, there is no easy way to do that. No magic file you can save to a CD or flash drive and voila have it. You'll just have to retype in any bookmarks that you regularly use. The link you need to go to for hotmail is:

http://login.live.com/login.srf?id=2&vv=550&lc=1033

Just like you have to go to specific webpage to access your gmail, you do the same for your hotmail. Now, one thing about Hotmail is that when you go to the login screen it gives you the option to save user name, or username and password. If you had that option checked on your old computer and have now forgotten your password, then you're S.O.L. There is a way to figure out your password by answering the secret question that Hotmail asked you when you first set up the account, so hopefully you remember which question they asked you and what your response was.

Let me know if this was helpful! good luck!

It was very helpful! Thanks so much!
