I have multiple hotmail accounts that i use, and to constantly go online to find an e-mail is really frustrating.

Is there a way to set up evolution to be able to access my hotmail account(s *if possible) to make my life easier, or have microsoft screwed up ther world again by making web-based mail the most used.

I believe you can set up evolution to access hotmail. You need to activate pop/stmp of hotmail. Last time I checked the is a fee for that.

I know, what about a college e-mail address....they use live.com web outlook... is there anything diferent to set up?


the address to the box is: https://db2prd0102.outlook.com/owa/.


EDIT: after 3 hours (no joke) the wifi is up and running again, but the send/recieve doesnt work, it just stays on the first bit

I got smtp set on port 25. Seems to be working fine.
