Question Reading Hotmail with Evolution/Kmail


Well...the topic says it all. Do you know by any chance how I can read my emails from Hotmail from Evolution or KMail? I tried already with some script and with the Java Plug-in MrPostman but nothing worked or I just did not do something right. Any ideas?

Thank you.

a.

Yes you can.

I do this all the tiime with evolution. Install hotwayd as a service:

http://hotwayd.sourceforge.net/

This will install a POP3 service on your local machie that acts a gateway to the hotmail server. You can point evolution to this server.

Arrow tried that one too

Yeah, hotwayd... I tried that one too but it did not work out because I am behind a router and it was giving me hard time. I remember I configured everything right and it did not work. I can try again, but I just posted that to see if anyone is using something else that gotmail, MrPostman and hotwayd.
