    I am running 7.04 on my Tosh laptop, and had the exact same error with sending : "Operation In Progress" in Evolution using hotwayd and hotsmtpd.

    I felt the issue was in hosts.allow and I was right. Please add the following line to /etc/hosts.allow :

    Code:
    hotsmtpd: 127.0.0.1 2500
    This was the end-all-be all of my issues, and now sending works fine. I hope it helps with anyone else who is having the issue.

    Also, to mention, I have configured xinetd with option "--inetd_compat" as suggested in a post somewhere in this thread. After editing hosts.allow, I did the following:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd restart
    sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
    What to do when this appear:

    Code:
    sudo: /etc/init.d/xinetd: command not found
    ?

    If you
    Code:
    cd /etc/init.d/
    ls xinetd
    And have nothing, then you don't have xinetd installed.

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    So I tried

    Code:
     sudo apt-get intall xinetd
    and I just installed it, but this folder remains empty.

    Sugestions?

    If you don't have xinetd installed, you should be able to follow the instructions of the original post. There's something weird going on with my ability to send a password now, but I'm able to receive messages. Try the page 1 post and tell me your results.
    If you really want xinetd, then the code is:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xinetd
    I hope the original poster updates and posts a how-to for xinetd.

    OK, I'm stumped, I don't understand how xinetd would be installed and the command xinetd not be present in /etc/init.d/ . That's part of the installation. Do you have a weird source installing the program?

    I assume that you followed the instructions at the beginning of the thread. What wasn't working that required you to install xinetd?

    How old is your account? Microsoft doesn't give WebDAV access to new accounts and you'll normally get a message saying that you need to pay for access. I suspect that new accounts are given WebDAV after they mature. You might want to look into POP3Hot, that should work.

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    I have hotsmtp installed but there are occasions when I get the "broken pipe" error.

    When I do, evolution just sits there waiting for the OK button to be pressed and so when I do, there's a long wait while all the spam is downloaded.

    BTW I tried pop3hot.com as server at got a message to the effect "domain name not found"
