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.'

my @msn.com is a free account, haven't checked in a while, but seem to remember that my @live account also forwards.

* toddy goes to check

edit:
yep, @live also forwards

Don't understand how to use it or what to do with it. Just downloads files which have no extension. Opened them in Wordpad to read but no instructions?

Problem I will find with that is, the Hotmail inbox is going to build up and say "you have xxx unread messages". Don't know about you but I'll find that annoying :P. Probably no way around it.

forwarded mail doesn't apear in your hotmail inbox, just go straight to the forwarded account

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 :p).  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 ;)

I'm guessing you have to register the domain with Windows Live Custom Domains.

How can I do if I do not own the domain of the addresse I want to forward to?

RE: Hotmail Redirect to Gmail
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.
