"In Windows Live Hotmail, customers have four times longer than with MSN Hotmail before their account expires: 120 days of inactivity instead of 30 days.

Any account, even if it's only being accessed through an e-mail client using the POP3 access, is safe from expiration due to inactivity as long as it is being accessed within the given time frame.

(same goes for IM access, I never use my Hotmail account but I'm using MSN via Pidgin or Miranda IM and the account is sound and safe :)."

"I set my Hotmail up to forward all mail to my Gmail.
I've logged into my Hotmail maybe twice in the last 6 months.

It's still alive :S

EDIT:
I've had people say you can't get Hotmail to forward to Gmail any more, I set it up a couple years ago and had no trouble at the time. One of my friends claims to have setup the forward recently, I'll ask him how and get back to you."
