    Here's my problem. Ever since my .Mac account ran out i haven't been able to use it for anything but i think thats because the "Account Type" was ".Mac". I've deleted that account now but i'm having trouble creating a new one.
    Few questions i've got.
    1.Do i use POP or IMAP?
    2.What do i put in the box "Incoming mail server" and the "Outgoing Mail Server" when creating the new account?
    3.Is it possible to re-direct my hotmail account into iMail, i done it with my uni account last year.

    Thats about it. This problem has ben bugging me for a long time and i really miss it, the Hotmail page is hideous. Plese help me.
