Adding new addresses to a Windows Live Account?

Without obviously giving any personal details away, l currently have two email accounts set up.
My main ISP account lets call it abc@myisp.uk, and a second account with windows live, so let's call that one def@hotmail.co.uk (aka outlook).
Now the question is, if l login to the Windows account (def) how do l, or can l even, download email from my ISP's (abc) account?
Does that make sense?

yes
if you are using windows live mail, even logged into WLM you can download mail to your other account
I have 5 accounts using WLM
You need to set a new account for each one of them
Once you set it up you just click on the Send/Receive Icon at the top of the program and it will bring in mail to each account

Hi willythecat,
if you store all your contacts in your hotmail account then use it to 'sign-in' on Windows Live mail, you will be able to use them in any account you add to WLM for sending / receiving. If using more than one account, any of them can be set as default.

One easy way to do this is to set your Hotmail account (or Outlook.com as it is today called) to pick your ISP mail.
  • Sign in to your Hotmail account web interface
  • Click the Settings icon, select More mail settings

  • If your ISP supports IMAP simply enter your name, ISP email address and password, click Next. If the ISP does not support IMAP click Advanced options to add POP3 and SMTP information

  • Follow instructions on screen
When correctly set up, your Hotmail picks up the messages from your ISP account. You can also select which account, Hotmail or ISP, your messages are sent from.
