It is possible to configure Outlook to receive the Mail. It is still Outlook but at least you can use a nicer interface. (I assume it would work with Outlook Express)
So for all students of (Bournemouth) University here is how you can do it.
- Add a new Email account.
- As type specify http (Something with Hotmail ...)
- Name is your login name (so something like e9084123)
- Email is email@example.com
- Password is your password (Ha)
- The Http Provider is 'other'
- And the Url is https://po.bmth.ac.uk/exchange/e9084123/ (Please replace my e number with yours)
