    Lightbulb Getting "Hotmail/Live" to work in 9.04 with Evolution

    We use to have to trick Hotmail to get it to send to a pop3 account, but recently M****soft decided to make pop3 available FOC from Hotmail. This means no more of the "hotway hotsmtp" stuff.

    For most of us, setting your account up like this is all you have to do

    For one reason or another your ports may be blocked, if that happens you need to set it up like this

    Do NOT do this method (It will cause your hotmail to not sync even if the settings are right):

    Link (2) Here

    If Evolution is still not working, make sure you didn't install xinetd (as the methods above tell you to) as that will cause problems with Evolution reading Hotmail now that it's free

    Thank you so much, setup was super easy. But I was having a bit of trouble and decided to just go to my hotmail and all of the emails that were in my inbox and now totally gone!(when I login just through firefox) is there a way that my evolution can import the emails without removing them from my online hotmail. jic my hd fails or something

    Question Re: Getting "Hotmail/Live" to work in 9.04 with Evolution

    Hi,

    This procedure works fine with my inbox in hotmail but my personal folders, like archive etc are not visible. Is there a way of fixing that too?

    Before setting up using this method I had already tried one of the supplied links to manually install and configure hotway but that didn't work as hotway was not found.
    I cannot find Xinetd installed but maybe I am not looking at the right spot?
