    Yes!

    Yes, yes, yes! Not full functionality yet, but at least I don't have to go to that god awful website to check my junk mail account.

    "Access to Hotmail via Outlook and Outlook Express now requires a subscription. Please sign up at http://join.msn.com/general/Email"

    Glad that Dan got it sorted to work under Leopard, found it this morning horray

    did you ever use httpmail before?
    Hotmail has a restriction on this service for paying customers or really old customers who started to use this type of service before they bought the charge in.

    i read in another thread they will be rolling out pop support to the free accounts some time in the future. So you can either pay for the service or you can wait until the pop support is released.

    Can't make changes to hotmail inbox

    I'm sorry if this is a dumb question. I just bought my first mac two weeks ago, switched from Windows.
    I downloaded httpmail for Leopard. It works just fine, except that I can't make any changes to the hotmail inbox. It is marked as read-only. It doesn't allow me to delete or mark as read, even after I've changed to "Sync with server" advanced option.
    I also bought Office 2004. Entourage works fine for hotmail, but I want to use Mail for my hotmail account.
    Thanks.

    guess it's tough luck with my account... really annoying actually because I have to use Firefox to check that Live Mail account, it doesn't work too well with Safari and it eats up tons of my rams every time I log onto its website. ahh thanks to Microsoft:mad:

    This is worrying!!!

    What doesn’t work

    Creating accounts
    Sending mail
    Pretty much everything else

    you can move mail to folders either, so it seems that this release of httpmail is only good for checking mail!!
    Dame you HOTMAIL!!!! and whats the most iritating is that Leopard has some really cool features in Mail which we wont be able to use with hotmail!!!!

    It is fixed as he said he wasn't going to release it with those issues still present. Details here http://blog.danielparnell.com/

    re: microsoft, this is an unoffical plugin which apple actually broke. However we shouldn't even need a plugin but it is a way of MS making money. I have heard that in the future they will add POP support for hotmail which would be very welcome.

    the problem is that you HAVE to have a Plus account (hotmail), that's stupid, cause i won't pay to have an email...
    is there any httpmail plug-in that doesn't require the hotmail plus account ?!
    now, i'm using "macfreepops"..but i have to run the app everytime i want to check the e-mail :s
    thanks!!

    If it makes you feel any better, Windows Mail doesn't work with hotmail either, you need to download a separate mail client.
