Getting Started with Windows Mail
If you need to access e-mail from any computer that offers Internet Access (perhaps because you travel a lot), and you need a little more than what Windows Mail offers, try Windows Live Mail. As you can see here, not only can you access your e-mail using a familiar interface, but you can add multiple email accounts, including a Hotmail account, and have access to other Live services like Live Contacts, Live Messenger, RSS feeds, newsgroups, and more.
