    I know how to set up hotmail in Apple mail so that I am receiving e-mail and can send e-mail. But when I send a e-mail from my hotmail account from another computer, the e-mail i've sent, wont appear in the 'sent' box of apple mail.

    Is there a possibility to sync my hotmail account entirely?

    PS. Plz. No hotmail bashing or advice to switch to gmail or another webmail kind of thing.

    I am assuming that you're using POP3 since hotmail doesn't support IMAP, so I think you're pretty much out of luck.

    The only way I can think of doing it is to log in to the hotmail site, copy all your sent folder messages to your inbox, then download them not your mail.app inbox, then move them to your mail.app sent folder.

    thx for your quick reply. Ok, I assume I just have to wait for an app that supports full syncing.

    No, you need to wait for Microsoft to improve hotmail to allow IMAP. Although, this software claims it works: http://fluentfactory.com/mboxmail-for-mac/
