    anybody solved this issue?
    This all comes down to one issue - easy or hard. Not wrong or right. For beginners, use my how-to (all through this thread). You will be using your ISP's smtp to send, but will not have to log in to get your hotmail.

    Good Luck!

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    does anyone know - will the instructions given stop your online hotmail viewer work?

    That set of instructions didn't work for me... but I don't seem to get all my emails anymore!?

    Help us with a little further clarification. Which method are you using to try to get your hotmail? (I believe there are 2 methods described in this thread); and what is it you mean by "stop your online hotmail viewer work"? Also, what emails aren't you getting?

    The more specific you are about the problem, the more likely it will be that you will get an effective reply....

    There is an error in one line of your post:
    Code:
    2500		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotsmtpd 
    Should actually be
    Code:
    2500		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotsmtp
    without the 'd' on the end.

    First, make sure your system is up to date. Open up a terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Now, install the inet daemon

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install inetutils-inetd
    This takes care of all of our dependencies. Now on to the good stuff...

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hotway hotsmtp
    This will install hotway, which allows you to read hotmail e-mails by simulating a POP3 server, and hotsmtpd, which allows you to send e-mail through hotmail using SMTP. By default, however, only hotway gets installed properly to your inet daemon, so let's fix this.

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/inetd.conf
    Look for a line like this:

    Code:
    pop3		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotwayd
    By default, hotway leaves a copy of each message it downloads on the server. I prefer it this way, so I can read my e-mail at other locations, but if you don't feel like filling up your hotmail box, change the line to add "-r" to the end, like this:

    Code:
    pop3		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotwayd -r
    And we also need to add a line to get hotsmtpd working, just paste this at the bottom:

    Code:
    2500		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotsmtpd
    This will set the inet daemon to listen to incoming calls on port 2500, and forward the connection to the hotsmtp daemon. Now, save your file, exit gedit, and restart your inetd server:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd restart
    If everything is working properly, you'll see this pop up on your screen:

    Code:
    * Restarting internet superserver inetd                            [ ok ]
    Now, close out of your terminal and start up Evolution. It may pop up the first-time use wizard, you can use that if you like. Or, you may have to go to Edit->Preferences and hit the Mail Accounts button on the left. However you choose to do it, here's your information:

    Email Address: xxx@hotmail.com (fill in your normal e-mail address that you use to login to hotmail)

    Receive Server type: POP
    Server: 127.0.0.1
    Username: xxx@hotmail.com (same as above)
    Security: No encryption
    Authentication type: Password
    (Remember password checkbox is up to you)

    Send Server type: SMTP
    Server: 127.0.0.1:2500
    [X] Server requires authentication (check this box)
    Use Secure Connection: No encryption
    Authentication Type: PLAIN
    Username: xxx@hotmail.com (same as above)
    (Optional Remember password checkbox)
    Any chance of adding encryption?

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    Not without 3rd party application, I believe, & I am unaware (take that for what its worth) of any such application for Linux. ( I mean, its Hotmail, fer crying out loud!) I seem to remember something from a while back about MSN having "built-in" encryption, but that may have just been something I thought I remembered reading on a Saturday morning after a long Friday night............

    Question Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    Hi peeps,

    So far the OP works for outgoing e-mails on my *@hotmail.com account.

    However, I cannot seem to get any e-mails recieved and have to use
    the hotmail website to see incomming mail on that account.

    Any ideas? Something about the 2500?

    Unable to connect to POP server 127.0.0.1: No support for requested authentication mechanism.

    That, along with the MSIE-centric focus of www.live.com, is one of the things that pushed me into moving to Linux.

    has anyone seen this message, this is what i get after following the directions in this post.

    ERR- unable to find folder on remote server.
