Look at/try some of those ...

The problem here is that MSN is a http-mail
interface that's non-standardised, and MS has
the Source so their Outpuke can keep up with
their modifications to their mail service easily...

Hope it helps.

Cheers,
Tink

there is. but u'll need third party scripts from the link tinkster gave. u can then pipe the downloaded emails to your local spool (i.e. /var/spool/mail/your_username) and then have evolution pick the mails from there.

Try forwarding your MSN email to a proper account.

Configuring Evolution for Att.net...

After reading this thread, I have a somewhat-related question...
Is it possible to easily configure Evolution for ATT.net email? I haven't even tried yet. I just wanted to know if someone knows how or already has, before I attempt it.
