    Hi im new to this Mac game and spent a couple of days doing my research going through all the forums trying to enable mail on my macbook using my hotmail account. When using Pop i could recieve but couldnt send and now im using http plug in and can send but cannot recieve i use hotmail.co.uk as .com in my email address.

    I would really appreciate if somebody could help me out i know if i join google problem solved but had my hotmail account for a long time and been ex RAF its the easiest way to get friends from my past getting in touch.

    Any help would be great.

    Cheers

    That's not strictly true. If you use the server pop3.live.com and smtp.live.com you can get it running on Mail, recieving and sending e-mails.
