Hmm, I tried this and found out that Outlook Express never worked
correctly with WineTools. I never tried, because this is the most
crappy software of the whole M$ suite. You should consider using a
different mail client if it is just for getting mail from hotmail.
There are about 50 for Linux? And you can also use Eudora, The Bat! or
one of the other Windows mailer with Wine.

Yes, Acrobat 6 is not working with Wine 20050111, but it works with
20041019, so use this one. There are other drawbacks with 20050111 like:

- MS Access hangs very frequently
- the Outlook splash screen is in the way and
  can not be removed by SplashScreenKiller
- Outlook crashes when opening mails with
I think I have to recommend 20041019 which is the stablest release for
me until now.
