Try Mr Postman:

 

Mr Postman

 

It's a Java program so it should work just as well on Linux. You will probably need to not use the standard POP or SMTP ports unless you are prepared to run the program as root.

 

Then just setup Thuderbird to check the ports you specify in Mr.P at server localhost

IIRC hotmail doesn't support pop or imap so you cannot use any email client to access it (with probable exception of outlook or outlook express plugins). So the only way to access hotmail is via the web.

 

Of course, I could be wrong

OR... You could read my post which ansers the question... Mr. Postman is a java applet which checks your hotmail and allowe Tunderbird to download it via the java applet... :wall:
