    hi everyone,

    recently I used this guide ( to set-up Mail app for using with my hotmail. What I didn't do is I did not disable the option for Mail app to delete messages from the server (default was on after 7 days)

    So now, all of my messages are gone from hotmail. I would like to keep the option of accessing them from other computers if I ever need to.

    So, please advice what the best solution at this point would be. (Only thing I can think of is Forwarding every message from Mail back to Hotmail. but I have more than 1500 emails - too complicated).

    Gmail has an import option, not sure about hotmail. Time to switch, free IMAP anyway :D
