    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    When I type code: sudo gedit /etc/inetd.conf all I get is an empty file. Why is that?

    When I did the preceding installation I was asked if I wanted it to automatically configure hotway (I think that was the question) but I chose to do it manually. Can it have anything to do with that? In that case how can I reset the changes to start all over?

    Thx

    Also, my next post explains the command for terminal.

    Good Luck and may the Force be with you!

    This is a brilliant put together walk through.
    I've never really been into Evolution before, largely because i never knew how to get Hotmail supported.

    Whoever worked all this out is obviously in another league of intelligence to me

    Hotmail is not a POP - freepops runs an autoscript essentially signing you in to Hotmail as "you"....as if you were actually signing in from the website. The freepops daemon runs as a service, and is configured thusly - localhost:2000 - in Evolution, and the error you are getting more than likely means that you have not invoked the command freepopsd, and the daemon is not running. ( POP server 127.0.0.1 is your own pc/freepops). Obviously invoking from the terminal every time you want to check your mail is inconvenient, so set it as a service that starts when your pc does. In most cases if installed from the website it works right off the bat.

    Also, update to the new livemail, because I think the autoscript is set for that, and make sure you update the freepops lua files with the updater provided from the website.

    Provided with no guarantees! Good Luck!

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    amazing, I had this working at one point with Fiesty, upgraded to gutsy, things went to poo. I couldnt get hotmail to work anymore. Came back and tried again like 2 months later. Followed steps on the first post <again> exactly <again> and voila. PERFECT!

    To the original poster: Thank you! and thanks to everyone else who is willing to help out!

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    Must say that the fact I've never got this working has temporarily infuriated me every time I've thought about it. Less to do with Ubuntu, more to do with the spectacularly non-wonderful Hotmail. I was one of the poor saps getting "could not find folder inbox on remote server" which apparently can't be resolved.

    Experimentally tried out the xinetd stuff, and now I get "connection refused." What's more annoying is that I can't even forward my emails to my gmail account, since MS disallow that too. Wunderbar.

    Edit: Well, resolved the connection refused stuff with the handy -inetd-compat stuff; back to ye olde "could not find folder inbox on remote server"
