Linux people and hotmail

I downloaded this really cool perl script that logs into your hotmail account and can forward it to another email address. Its called Got Mail.

Here is the basic syntax
./gotmail -u cruzcranford -p youonlywish -d hotmail.com -f [email protected]

That'll download my email and forward it to my mail server where I can get it via imap. Plus, you can add the -d command to delete email from hotmail after it downloads too

Finally, I can start using a new email address to check all my accounts, and not have to worry about space limatations ( well I only have 10GB available ).

In windows, you can load up outlook express to check hotmail, cant do that in linux, and like to be notified asap when i get mail, this seemed the best way to me
