    Yay! It works! I didn't even know I could check Hotmail without Outlook! I don't use Hotmail a lot, that's why I prefer not even visiting hotmail.com... Gmail is the best for me, by the way.

    Thanks a lot for this howto, you liberated me from having to go on the Hotmail website!!!

    Turns out I registered to windows live mail and not windows live mail desktop.

    However now I get a new error. Server Answer: "Unable to find folder inbox on remote server"

    I think this might be because I have a swedish account. inbox is actually called inkorg. I had the exact same problem with gotmail but there you can choose what folder to download. Can I do that here to?

    EDIT: Crap, not the problem. I changed it to inkorg and recompiled. Still the same error. Except it's "Unable to find folder inkorg on remote server" now.

    Fantastic HowTo.
    Worked like a charm for me.Finally i can send and receive mail without going to firefox.

    Now if only someone could tell me how to import and sync all my personal folders from hotmail, my day would be made!

    Thank you very much.
    I got the same error message :

    Unable to connect to POP server 127.0.0.1.
    Error sending password: -ERR Hotmail said you must pay money to have WebDAV access

    My account is old, at least from 2003.

    Thanks again.

    Worked great in Thunderbird for me! Can send and receive using Thunderbird and this Hotmail account.

    Edit: I had to redo this guide when I upgraded to Feisty.

    THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL THREAD!

    I just set up my hotmail account to evolution! It looks great and it's neat and well made. I'm so happy. This thread really helped me and it was easy enough to follow. I didn't have any problems (thankfully) installing it, but I do have two questions. My first question is the following:

    Is there a specific setting that must be fine tuned for receiving emails? I can send with no problem, however, whenever I try to receive emails they don't go through. Instead, I've got to log into hotmail to retrieve them. Any ideas? It can be something simple that I've missed out. Please help.

    The second question:

    Are there themes/mods/plugings that you can download to make it even better or more stylish? Style is a very important thing next to features

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    I've no clue how but the messages are actually going through. It just takes awhile, I'm going to see if there's anyway to configure it so that a) I don't have to enter a password to do everything & b) don't have to wait as long to be notified about a new message. Again, an amazing thread.
