    Hi,
    I can't find folder inbox on remote server.
    What happen?

    ////
    OS: Fedora Core 1.92 (Test3)
    Hotmail Personal Options -> Langage: English

    # hotwayd -v
    hotwayd v0.8 - http://hotwayd.sourceforge.net/

    # telnet localhost 110
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK POP3 hotwayd v0.8 -> The POP3-HTTPMail Gateway. Server on localhost active.
    USER tsubodon@hotmail.com

      I am no expert, but when I installed it on my system,  I was more concerned with " Connected to localhost.
      Escape character is '^]'.
      +OK POP3 hotwayd v0.8 -> The POP3-HTTPMail Gateway. Server on localhost active."
      once that was connected, I then went and set up Evolution, and it worked for me.

        Thanks, jar_jar

        But still not working.
        I use Mozzila Mail. I setup acount and server,
        Its warning dialog box say, "Unable to find folder inbox on remote server". And also at Evolution.

        When startup hotwayd with loglevel "-l 2"
        In /var/log/boot.log
        "AUTH failed, couldn't find folder inbox"

        Is it an authentication problem?

      I had the same problem recently.  The cause of the problem was the language set in the Hotmail users preferences was Japanese, once this was set to English everything worked fine.
