hotwayd is a POP-3 to HTTPMail gateway. HTTPMail is an undocumented WebDAV-based protocol used by Outlook[tm] to access @hotmail.com and @msn.com email accounts without having to go through the web interface. This gateway daemon allows *any* POP3 compliant email client to handle (download, delete, etc) messages from a @hotmail.com or @msn.com email account. It is made for POSIX-based operating systems.
Changes in this release include a new caching mechanism to speed up requests including STAT, LIST, RETR and TOP. Enhanced error checking, and numerous other compilation-based and run-time based error fixes including updating the status of the mailbox if changes occur via the web interface whilst being logged into the gateway daemon.
We've also launched a new-look web site and moved all of our content on to the sourceforge servers, meaning http://hotwayd.sourceforge.net/ is now the official home of hotwayd.
