My primary email address is all ready in Outlook 2007. How it got there?
Well, I don't know for sure. But my guess is that when I paced through an
MS's inital training module: "Up To Speed ..." it got into the Outlook
program.

Okay, then (you may ask), what's the problem?
Well, I wanna have another email address added into the Outlook 2007
program. For obvious reasons, some of my email goes to one address and
certain types of email goes to another address (It's for a special business
project.) I just want to keep things separate. The problem is: I can't seem
to figure out how to add a second email address to my Outlook 2007 program.
I don't even know how exactly my primary email address got into this program
in the first place. Go figure????

Okay, so here's what the Liontamer did so far:
Outlook 2007 > Tools (I figured that was a smart choice) > Account Settings
> New > MS Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP (Option button is selected) > Next >
Add New Email Account (See, I was getting excited now. I thought I was on
the right track.) (So, I filled in the Dialog Box.) > Next

Then, I get this message: "Access to Hotmail via Outlook Express now
requires a subscription." (What the 'Monkey's' is going on here? I all
ready paid for this program. Now they want more money! Humm, I don't know
anymore. I'm gonna Roar pretty soon. Thanks goodness for this discussion
group.) Continuing their message: "Please sign up at
http://join.msn.com/general/email"

So what does this Liontamer do?
I go to that address "http://join...." and it redirects me to this webpage:
http://home.live.com/?showunauth=1 (What's all this stuff after
"/?showunauth=1 it's all so complicated?"

Anyways:
1. I all ready have a second hotmail account (reasons all ready explained
above.)
2. I use Verizon DSL with MSN (Humm, I wonder if it's got something to do
with that account? But even Verizon allows an end user multiple accounts.
So, well, I just can't figure it out.)

Your challenge, should you decide to accept it is:
How do I add another email account to my Outlook 2007 ?
Why do I get the message above: "Access to Hotmail via Outlook Express now
requires a subscription."?
How do I acquire a subscription? And do I really need one, since I all
ready have Verizon with MSN and since I all ready have separate email
accounts?
Does this all have something to do with my Verizon account?

PS: This message will not self detsruct in 30 seconds. But it will
challenge those of you Captains who have boldly gone where us Liontamers have
not been before!
Have a pleasant day. Live long and prosper!

Thank you Ms. N. Miller. It's the effort of people like you that help us
clarify things. I understand now that hotmail "is the provider of an
account" and Outlook "is the software running on your computer." I realize
how exact computers can be. This point, however, did not ride through as
clearly stated as you described, least to my recognition. Keep in mind,
there's much information to absorb. This detail may have slipped by too
quickly.

Your suggestion to contact Verizon may just be a good line of follow up to
solve this situation. I will be calling them soon with questions. When I
find out more, I will report my findings for you and others to see.

You say: "If you want to use POP3 to access the Hotmail service, you have to
pay for that, as well. Free alterative is the "Outlook Connector"; but I am
not familiar with the details of using that." This sounds like something
worth looking into. I will explore this, if necessary, after I contact
Verizon.

Thank you for your response. One thing, please realize all of us have
different levels of experience. Which is "why?" it's nice to know Captian's
like you are out there!
