I have win 10 and use live mail to read my other email account. I just no longer can read hotmail through Live.
I think were talking past our selves. Hotmail/live is always available as a web based platform. So open explorer, edge, chrome etc. type Hotmail.com. from there you get to a live logon page. type in your credentials and you should be good to go. Those are the same credential you’ll use for the mail app in 10.
