Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Some sites tell me Hotmail has POP3 access now, but with Thunderbird it doesn't seem to work. The only solution (which I didn't test yet) is a WebMail plugin that helps Thunderbird to read data from MSN Live / Hotmail. Did anyone get this to work?

It helps if you quote the relevant part of the page you're linking to. If the quote would be too long then a summary would do. –  ChrisF Apr 12 '10 at 20:00

I found out that my password was too long. That was the problem!
