There was a bulletin that came out concerning hotmail accounts. You might want to Google it.

If you are using Outlook Express upgrade to Windows Live Mail. Hotmail will support that e-mail program. Outlook Express will no longer work with hotmail accounts. The only other way to get around it is to use your browser.

I want to delete inbox from my pc


Generally when someone uses the term 'inbox' they are talking about the folder where their email program stores emails. This folder can contain emails that have been read and emails that have not been read. After you 'delete' and email from your 'inbox' it is usually stored in a folder called 'Trash'.

Anyway, if you actually want to delete 'inbox' as apposed to say deleting all the emails in 'inbox' it can get a little tricky.

Here is how it is done for Firefox:

Go to the 'Tools' menu and select 'Account Settings'. Find 'Server Settings' under the account for which you wish to remove the 'inbox'.. Once on the 'Server Settings' page look for 'Local Directory' on the bottom left of the dialog. Click on the 'Browse' button. When the 'Browse for Folder' dialog comes up you will see your current 'inbox's name and location as it will be highlighted in the list.

I'd recommend chosing a new folder as your 'inbox' at that time, Then use Windows Explorer to browse to that location and delete the folder.

I have an advertisement covering the right third of the inbox page of the hotmail

This is usually caused by inadvertently "mousing over" the ad. There should be a little 'x' some where in one of the corners of the ad to close it. Or you can always close that tab or all of Internet Explorer and bring it up again.

Just keep in mind if you put your mouse anywhere near one of those banners it will likely bring that big ad up again.

How can we use the outlook express 6 to check

Open Microsoft Outlook and from the "Tools" menu select "Email Accounts." The email account wizard will pop up.
Choose "Add a new email account" from the list of options and click the "Next" button. Then, select "HTTP" and hit "Next" again. Now you are ready to input information about your Hotmail account.
Select "Hotmail" from the drop down menu at the right. Enter the name that you want to associate with this account in the "Your Name" field. This is the name that appears when you send someone an email from Outlook.
Input your Hotmail email address in the "Email Address" field. Your user name will automatically be filled in when you do this.
Provide the password to your Hotmail account in the "Password" field. Put a check mark in the check box below if you would like for Outlook to remember your password. This will save you from having to enter your password every time you download your Hotmail email with Outlook.
Hit the "Finish" button to complete the setup of your Hotmail account. Now, when you select "Send and Receive" Outlook will synchronize with Outlook. Too see your Hotmail email, select "Inbox in Hotmail" from your list of mail folders.
