How do I configure evoloution to use MSN?
Why cant I seem to configure Evoloution to get my MSN e-mail... I know, I know, MSN=Evil, I work for dell, I am knee deep in it, But I use MSN currently because I havent fully switched to Linux yet. Any how, How do I configure evoloution to get my mail from MSN? It is driveing me nuts! and MSN will not help! :confused:

their modifications to their mail service easily...

Hope it helps.

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