Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by Chris4 on 05-09-2005 at 11:48 PM
I'm currently using Hotmail and I want my emails to redirect to my Gmail account.

I don't believe this is possible unless you have Hotmail Premium (the paid service)

when Gmail first came out there was a program you could run on ure PC to forward all your hotmails to another account like Gmail, but I can't remember the name of it now.

It is actually possible to fetch Hotmail / Live mail such that it can either be stored in a local UNIX mailbox or further processed via procmail-like mail filters and thus forwarded to Gmail

RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by toddy on 07-20-2008 at 09:04 PM
i have hotmail (well @msn.com) forwarded to my gmail account.
RE: RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by pascalv on 07-20-2008 at 09:33 PM
This is apparently not possible for free Live MSN Hotmail mail account
The Microsoft error message says 'You're only able to forward mail to a custom domain or an e-mail address that ends in hotmail.com, msn.com, or live.com. Please try again.'
RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by toddy on 07-20-2008 at 09:37 PM
my @msn.com is a free account, haven't checked in a while, but seem to remember that my @live account also forwards.

quote:Well, you have to download and decompress a file called GetLive_0_57.tgz (you'll find a .txt file that explains the usage of GetLive ). I tested GetLive using Ubuntu and it worked fine :D
What you basically have to do is create a "config-file" with your account details
then, you have to call the perl script:
./GetLive.pl --config-file your-config-file
Have fun ;)
RE: RE: RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by vaccination on 07-21-2008 at 06:41 AM
I'm guessing you have to register the domain with Windows Live Custom Domains.
RE: RE: RE: RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by pascalv on 07-21-2008 at 07:12 PM
How can I do if I do not own the domain of the addresse I want to forward to?
RE: RE: RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by pascalv on 07-21-2008 at 07:14 PM
It worked fine with FreeBSD too
RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by ben345 on 09-05-2008 at 04:21 PM
GetMail for Hotmail is an email forwarding program that started life because of the lack of a POP3 server for the Hotmail email system. If you have tried looking for a POP3 server address for Hotmail or MSN mail you'll know what I mean! From this it has evolved into a flexible email forwarding program. If you use GetMail For Hotmail with other third party POP3 tools such as FreePOPS or YPOPS you can also forward on AOL, Yahoo and many other webmail only email accounts making it the ideal tool to use for not only mass migrating all your e-mail to Gmail but also to continue forwarding on mail received in your old accounts! For those of you wishing to forward on other POP accounts I've created a list of SMTP servers that may help.
RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by Jarrod on 09-05-2008 at 09:21 PM
my mate registered his custom domain, then got his custom domain to forward to gmail or something, so he only uses gmail now, i'll ask him when his on wlm
RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail by pascalv on 09-21-2013 at 04:39 PM
It changed since this thread started, it is now possible to forward to another e-mailaddress, or to read (pop) Hotmail (outlook.com) e-mails
