Best way to login into hotmail using an api of some sort

Hi all,

i am wanting to know if its possible to login into hotmail with a hotmail email account knowning the username and password or in this case an email account and actually read/send/delete emails.

I Know i can use curl for this but does anyone know of any classes that could help me with the hotmail email system api or would i have to develop to do what i am looking for?

Thanks,William

Use their POP3 and SMTP servers.

You should be able to find appropriate mail libraries in whatever language you want to use.

i want to be able to login into hotmail using php not using anything else other than using my web browser without having to go to hotmail.com itself is this possible?

Thanks,William

Use their POP3 and SMTP servers. You download mail for a hotmail account with POP3 and send mail from a hotmail account with SMTP. In your PHP code. This doesn’t require anything external, just PHP code.
