Evolution setup for Hotmail,Netscape,Yahoo, etc

Does anyone know how to setup Evolution to pop or imap
web servers like Netscape,Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.... ?

I have Netscape 7.1 and tried copying the server info from its set up of Netscape and that failed
host lookup failed to find ""

tried copying the information from a windows box on Hotmail
had similar results

Is there any way of setting up Evolution to check mail at these sites
work arounds

any one?

Evolution doesn't support HTTP mail (hotmail, yahoo, etc) Verify the mail server from Netscape.Mail though, Evolution should support IMAP.
