    I use the plugin (HTTPMail) to send/receive Hotmail email via the OSX Mail application. Over the past couple of days, it hasn't been able to receive email, but can send it, without issue.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    EDIT: Sorry ADMIN. I meant to put this in another forum.

    Here's an answer posted at Versiontracker.com from Timothy Smith (presumably the programmer):

    It's not Bush's fault. If anything, it's Bill Clinton's fault. ;)

    Thanks...

    Between this and Safari being unable to directly access Hotmail, I'm at a loss (Hotmail is my primary email account). I'm not really a huge fan of Firefox.

    Thanks for the info.

    That was the joke. The OP originally posted the question in the PRSI forum by mistake - mods have since moved it here. ;)

    Isn't this just great...

    You know... I was wondering why this was happening to me. This really sucks because... well, I've been using hotmail for years now. I guess it gives me a reason to switch from hotmail to something else.

    Start switching. Hotmail just doesn't stand up to the likes of gmail anymore :)

    If anyone is interested;

    If you have Microsoft Entourage (basically Microsoft Outlook for Mac), which is bundled with Office, it can be configured to send/receive Hotmail.​

    I personally love Hotmail and have been using the same account for the better part of a decade. Their default spam protection is unmatched, in comparison to my Gmail accounts (one of which I've never even used), and I never even set up any rules for it.

    Gmail offers more space; but who needs a terabyte for email anyway?
