    Hi,
    i tried to follow this and everything went well until i actually tried to receive an email. I got an email on my hotmail account saying:

    Your email application has just queried the IzyMail system and requested
    to download messages for your account. However, it was determined that
    your email address is not registered with IzyMail and the system cannot
    proceed.

    You may have used the server name ‘pop3hot.com’ which is an earlier,
    obsolete name for the same service.

    IzyMail requires a FREE registration before it enables access to your
    account. Registration is free of charge and the online registration
    form is available at

    http://v3.izymail.com/register.aspx

    We thank you for your confidence in IzyMail and hope to see you back
    very soon.

    We hope you found this information helpful,
    Have a very pleasant day,

    the IzyMail support team

    And when I sent a test email to hotmail nothing came up at gmail. Any tips?
    Cheers
