    Does anyone know how to get their hotmail in mail.app-universal? Daniel's famous httpmail plugin only works for ppc, and entourage is simply not as cool as mail.app:cool:

    Not unless somethings changed in the last 2 weeks, I'll go check.

    Just have Mail open in Rosetta, that's what I've done. Thing is, I only have 512MB RAM, and it doesn't feel much slower than when I ran it in Universal mode.

    Make Mail run in Rosetta... it's well worth the extra second or two in load times to be able to check Hotmail within Mail.

    Also, if it's worth anything, I have read that newer accounts, in the last two years or so, may not work with httpmail. Keep that in mind if Rosetta doesn't make it work.

    This is because Microsoft has disallowed outlook express access for newer hotmail accounts. Hence httpmail for mail.app dies for the new accounts as well.

    Microsoft should change it from "FREE! email" to "FREE! webmail"
