"Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool"
Worked perfectly. Thank you!
does wine run Livemail?
in despair, i uninstalled hotway and Xinetd and tried mandrill's freepops. it turned out to be really easy, for some one like with only some it experience both windows and ubuntu. only hicup was that i used 'localhost' in stead of what should be 'localhost:2000' which i found out somewhere else. as the freepops manual's tutorial only illustrates outlook express which has a tab for proxy/socket. and evolution doesn't have this tab. you have to use localhost:2000 to specify the socket 2000 that freepops needs.
in non-conclusive conclusion, for a newbie like me, freepops is better.
grateful thanks again for both Indras and mandrill's help.....

if u use freepops, it works in utuntu, why wine? if some one have problem with live, update and get the freepops hotmail latest plugin which will resolve live mail. as least the freepops faq says so
each popular webmail domain has its own plugin, just take the plugin for your mail address. if your address if not supported by freepops, well you will have to develop a plugin for my own address, or request someone to help ya...

But is important, because i don't want to run outlook just to get my email im quite comfortable with evolution, i don't need the adv. features and lets just hope the freepops guys manage to reverse ingineer the new protocole microsoft will be rolling out at the end of june.
Otherwise, its www.hotmail.com back again. I'm trying to minmize my use of that account but is hard since i have it since 1998.
