1st post, so apologies for any mistakes..
I have just switched from Vista to Ubuntu. I can't stand Microsoft so don't intend to dual boot and so am trying to set everything up to have the same functionality as before.
I use multiple hotmail accounts which I have read about are all pop3 for email clients. Windows live mail apparently does something clever to access them and all the correct folders, which I haven't been able to replicate with evolution/thunderbird.
What I want is a mail client to:
Open a hotmail account, sync emails in all folders shown in hotmail (webmail), i.e. inbox, outbox, sent items, drafts....
Leave emails on the server, only deleting if I manually delete.
Load all previous emails from all folders shown on the mail server.
Do this for all multiple accounts, yet remain separated from each other.
Evolution and Thunderbird are failing in 1 or more of the above.
I have installed Wine, but not been able to get the windows live mail standalone installer to work, and not found instructions on the net.
So either I need a badass email client, or I need to run windows live mail. Can anyone out there help me please???
I am new to Ubuntu, confident I can follow terminal commands, however I'm still finding my way around linux. Now off to the beginner thread to find out some basics..
