    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    I know this is kind of two years after this was last edited, but I'm trying to do the same thing as mentioned and I get the following error:

    Unable to connect to POP server 127.0.0.1.
    Error sending password: -ERR Unable to find folder inbox
    on remote server

    Please enter the POP password for
    xxxx@hotmail.com on host 127.0.0.1.
    Any ideas?

    Depends on which "same thing" you're referring to. There are 2 different methods (with their tutorials) in this thread (yeah, its a tad long) but it looks like you are trying to use mine. So, either your freepops daemon is not running, you have not updated the freepops program, or you have not configured your ports correctly. This is one program you DO NOT want to install from the repos; it is buggy and difficult to update if you are new. Download from website, use the installer provided for whichever architecture you run, including the updater, (there's one just for GDM) install it, update it, and configure evolution mail client pop server as localhost:2000. Everything else is easy. (noticed this - -ERR Unable to find folder inbox) are you trying to run as IMAP?

    This worked first time, great

    Only one issue though, it only picks up the inbox, sometimes I get emails that hotmail filters to junk. Is there anyway of picking that up also?

    Not sure I understand your question....or more precisely, what you are trying to accomplish?

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    If you get an email from someone in your hotmail address book, it's put in the hotmail inbox.

    However, if the email is from someone not in your hotmail address book, that email is put in the junk folder.

    Is there any way of to access this 'junk' folder through hotway, or do I have to access them the traditional hotmail way?

    I would think you can change your junk mail settings in hotmail. However, my tutorial was not concerning hotway.
