GetMail for Hotmail is an email forwarding program that aims to address the lack of a POP3 server for Hotmail. This means that you can automatically setup Hotmail to forward your e-mails to other addresses. If you use GetMail For Hotmail with other third party POP3 tools such as FreePOPS or YPOPS you can also forward from AOL, Yahoo and many other webmail email accounts.
This makes it particularly useful for mass migrating all your e-mail to Gmail but also to continue forwarding e-mail received in your old accounts. For those that wish to forward to other POP accounts, the developers have created a list of SMTP servers. GetMail for Hotmail can even forward e-mail to your Blackberry. It's SSL compatible and can run as a Windows service.
This is an excellent program that's long overdue. As many more people move from Hotmail to other e-mail accounts, this will become an increasingly popular program.
