I have been using Microsoft Office Outlook Live (MOOL) under Windows for some time. I recently made the switch to OS X and found this plugin for mail. So far it works great, but there is something that I really need. Once email is delivered to Mail, if I move the email to another folder that also exists on the hotmail server, the email disappears from my inbox in hotmail but is not placed in the appropriate folder on the hotmail server. Am I missing something, or is there no way to accomplish this?
Thanks for a great plugin,
How did you get around the outbound server issue on mentioned on the prior discussion thread?
Well, services.msn.com was automatically generated, using port 25 with no authentication. I sometimes have to try once or twice before a connection is established with the server, but its not a big deal for me. Obviously, I'm using a hotmail account that I pay for.
The one thing I will say is that when I first used the plugin I had a terrible time getting things to work, or so I thought. I enabled the debug window in the httpmail preferences and saw that httpmail was just busy downloading several hundren megabytes of emails. I wish I could be of more help, but my problems went away once httpmail finished downloading all of my emails.
