    So I used to use Outlook Express with several of my Hotmail accounts,
    and it worked great,

    but I put together a new system and since I know Microsoft wants to phase out Outlook Express, I setup Outlook,
    Hotmail said that it all works with the microsoft outlook connector, except the Calendar part, that you have to pay the ~$20 a year to upgrade your hotmail if you want the calendar to work, ( I don't care about the calendar part ), So this was my understanding,


    I set it all up, and it works, but man is it SLOW!
    It is ridiculously slow, goes non responding sometimes, and is always in progress of sending/receiving,

    Anyone else have any similar problems or have any advice on how to address or remedy this problem? Is it possible to fix this?

    Thanks,

    Have you tried windows live mail? It appears to be the Outlook Express replacement for hotmail support.
