So no one has answered me yet. Whats the benefit of using WLM or Outlook over just firefox hotmail.com?

- view it offline seems to be the only benefit ive seen and my internet rarely crashes

Got rid of all pop mail.

Yes and Yes.

I use Outlook with gmail, yahoo and other accounts. I want it all locally. If I need to check it remotely, I remote into my home pc and check it.

You can also set a mailclient to open if you click on a mail.

Using mailwasher you hardly need to open your mailclient.
Its also possible to bounce it.

Well for me I use Windows Live Mail because I can have all my email addy's in it, I have 4 ISP email addresses, as well as Hotmail and Gmail and then their are my RSS Feeds and all my newsgroups.

Oh and my Internet never crashes either

Hotmail for me, I have Windows live mail as well but I only have one Email adress and can't see the point in using it over the web based one, plus I find it far more convenient as I always have my browser set to open the tabs from the previous session and Hotmail is always on the first Tab and SevenForums on the second as soon as I open it.

I am always signed in as well and it only requires a refresh to see what new mail I have.
