Hi Guys, First of all I have done a lot or research into this on the forums so please don't flame me for asking it here, I just cannot find a definitive solution. I want to continue using my hotmail email account that I have been for 10 years, however the mail application on my MAC will not sync my folders or emails I have deleted with the server. This all works fine on my ipad 2. I am aware that the hotmail servers can tell the OS and as a result seem to be not allowing the MAC to use anything but the POP3 protocol which does not allow what I want. i have tried using m.hotmail.com with no luck and also Mbox which seemed to do nothing (not helped by it's user guide that made reference to Entourage?? but did not say what the hell that is). It baffles me how in this technological age simple compatibility like this exists, and to be honest ruins the user experience. Does anyone know of a method where I can have full access to my hotmail account, sync folders not just download them once and delete emails locally and from the server? I do not want to switch to gmail as my current hotmail address is my exact name with no silly numbers or unmemorable initials.
