Link with hotmail?

Post by maxwow »

I'm seen alot of skins integrated with Gmail. I just wanted to know if there's any with hotmail. I have a couple of accounts there, and i figured it'd be a godsend if i can just view to see if there's any incoming mails.

this might not be possible perhaps a couple of years back, but i think Microsoft has changed their APIs - i can now see my email messages (POP3) on my iphone using a 3rd party client. If this works the same way, is it possible to integrate it with gnometer or enigma? Or is there one already available?

Thanks for your time!

I'm afraid not. WebParser does not have the ability to provide the kind of cookie / credentials needed by a website like hotmail. Gmail is kind of an exception as they (at least for now) still have a feed that allows the old fashioned GET style login with username:password on the URL.
