Yes, as far as I know, you can not.
However, there's an alternative way to get your mails in MS OUTLOOK.
it might help u:

If you have option to forward your email then you can. Just setup a forwarder to another email account.

But unfortunately Hotmail and Yahoo do not support email forwarding (not sure whether they have updated recently) so you won't be able to check your hotmail/yahoo using gmail account.

Gmail does support email forwarding. You can setup email forwarding from gmail to Hotmail or some other account.

Hi folks...Didn't you ever find it hard to handle your mails during your busy schedule?
Last week I had a real tough time when I missed an important e-mail message which was to be replied instantly. Since I've been using Hotmail frequently these days, I forgot to check out my yahoo message. And cosequently I could not respond to my Research Assistantship provider's e-mail. So finally I'm here to seek a solution to this problem. Is is possible to read your yahoo, hotmail and G-Mail messages all at once from the same inbox? If it is possible Pls!!!! HELP.

Prasant ji, Welcome to WNSO chautari!

Yes, of course you can read them in one inbox.

you can use outlook express or you forward emails to any of your accounts.

Here is how you forward gmail and hotmail messages to Yahoo account.


In gmail

select settings
then in forwarding POP/IMAP tab
enter your yahoo address where you will read your messages
Save changes and you are done.

Then, in hotmail(Windows Live Mail)

go to options (which is on the right top in live mail inbox page )
from dropdown menu choose more options.
then on the options page under manage your accounts select Forward mail to another e-mail account
enter your yahoo account.

it will ask you to verify your account
go you yahoo account check if you get a verification email from hotmail.
click the link on it to verify.

you are done!!

Happy new Year!!

Prasad ji,

Well your reply for another chautarian, have supported me too.

I have been thinking about such idea, ultimately I have it now from you.

It is very convenient and easier, if implemented.

I find it useful one.

Once again many many thanks to Prasad ji for reducing my e-headache !

Yahoo! Mail > Help > Tutorials > Accessing Yahoo! Mail >Forwarding :

Forwarding Yahoo! Mail to Another Email Account :
You can forward your incoming Yahoo! Mail Plus email messages to another email address—even another Yahoo! Mail address. If you have more than one email account, forwarding lets you receive and work with all of your messages in one location.

While your email is being forwarded, new messages won’t appear in your account on the Yahoo! Mail server. (Messages that came into your mailbox before you turned on email forwarding do remain in your account.) This means that you can’t read new Yahoo! Mail through a browser at the Yahoo! Mail web site. (Of course, if you’ve forwarded to another Yahoo! Mail address, you can read that mail at the Yahoo! Mail site.)


1. In a browser, go to the POP Access & Forwarding page.
2. On the POP Access & Forwarding page, make sure that the radio button in front of the Forwarding option is selected.
3. Type the email address to which you want to forward your Yahoo! Mail.
4. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
5. You may be asked to verify the forwarding email address that you’ve entered. If so, follow the onscreen instructions for verification.
6. After you’ve verified the forwarding address, remember to sign into your other email address to read your Yahoo! Mail messages!

To turn mail forwarding off, return to the POP Access & Forwarding page, and select the Web & POP Access option. This clears the forwarding email address from the Email Address box.

In Hotmail (window Live Mail )
You're only able to forward mail to a custom domain or an e-mail address that ends in hotmail.com, msn.com, or live.com.

Google Help > Gmail Help > Filters
You also can set up filters to forward messages that meet specific criteria. You can create 20 filters that forward to other addresses. You can maximize your filtered forwarding by combining filters that send to the same address.

Using filters
Gmail's filters allow you to manage the flow of incoming messages. Using filters, you can automatically label, archive, delete, star, or forward your mail, based on any combination of keywords, sender, recipients, and more.

To create a filter:

Click Create a filter (next to the Search the Web button at the top of any Gmail page).
Enter your filter criteria in the appropriate field(s).
Click Test Search to see which messages currently in your account match your filter terms. You can update your criteria and run another test search, or click Next Step.
Select one or more actions from the list. These actions will be applied to messages matching your filter criteria in the order in which the actions are listed -- for example, you could choose to Forward matching messages to a specific email address, then Delete the messages.
If you'd like to apply this filter to messages already in your account, select the Also apply filter to x conversations below checkbox.
Click Create Filter.

To create a filter from within a message:

Click the drop-down menu next to Reply.
Select Filter messages like this.
Enter your filter criteria in the appropriate field(s).

To edit or delete existing filters:

Click Settings (at the top-right of any Gmail page).
Click Filters.
Find the filter you'd like to change and click its edit link, or click delete to remove the filter.
If you're editing the filter, enter the updated criteria for the filter in the appropriate fields, and click Next Step.
Update any actions and click Update Filter.

You can create an unlimited number of filters, but only 20 filters can forward to other addresses. You can maximize your filtered forwarding by combining filters that send to the same address.
