Kmail / gotmail


Ive just switched to linux (openSuse 10.2) again, but this time permanatly, ive kept dabbeling into linux every now and then but I want to stick with it this time as Ive been getting really annoyed at windows.

Ive got loads of questions to ask but probably best i just ask one at a time.

Ive got Kmail, and I downloaded gotmail so that i could access my hotmail through it, .gotmailrc is as follows:

username=myusername
password=mypassword
domain=hotmail.com
folder-dir=/home/USERNAME/.hotmail/
folders=Inbox
retry-limit=3

and Kmail is configured as:

account type: Local Mailbox
account name: hotmail
file location: /home/USERNAME/.hotmail/Inbox
Locking method: Mutt dotlock
Destination folder: inbox
pre-command: gotmail


ive tried changing a few different things, but this configuration seems most sucessful, all of the emails are been downloaded, and they are added to the inbox file when i try to check my mail in kmail, and an index file is created next to it. However kmail just keeps going at 0% and says error cannot find file /home/USERNAME/.hotmail/Inbox every now and then

Im quite confused because its clear that the gotmail is working alright as i can open the index file and read all of my emails, what am i doing wrong with kmail?

Thanks for your help in advance
