I'm trying to use Hotmail through Evolution. I'm following the tutorials I've found online but when I get to the [gedit /etc/inetd.conf] part it just opens a blank document. Maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I've done all of the other steps correctly leading up to that one. Here is the tutorial I'm following: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=200408. Also, does Hotmail even work through Evolution this way or am I wasting my time? Thanks.

Are you using Hotmail Free, Plus or Permium?

Windows Live have blocked port accses to Hotmail Free, that means you can't download your mail from the internet unless you use "Windows Live Mail Desktop"

I had the exact same problem in the past, before i switched to Gmail

Well that's really annoying. I would switch to GMail but then I would have to forward all of my Hotmail emails to GMail and it won't let me do that. I guess I'll just have to keep using Hotmail online. Thanks.
