    I subscribed to a mailing list by giving them my hotmail account, expecting to be able to be to filter its e-mails into a folder but, to my surprise, it's not obvious how such a thing can be done in hotmail.

    Can hotmail be configured to send e-mails to a specific folder based on certain criteria?

    Thank you...

    This is why I use Excite email. The interface is much more intuitive than Hotmail's is -- I've set people up with accounts and watched them discover setting after setting within seconds, much to their delight.

    If you can download your email into Outlook Express (or even better, Mozilla Thunderbird) then you can create custom filters that will direct incoming mail to the places you want it to go.
