    I know hotmail is bad, but I have been using it for many years...

    Apple Mail cannot delete emails, syncing is unstable
    outlook 2011 for mac use POP3 protocols only, there is no way to manage effectively
    Airmail used to work, but recently all attachments loss its name and file type, all attachment displays as a file of "unknown name", and often report unstable connections...

    is there an email client available to OSX Maverick that works with Hotmail /

    What do you mean it's bad? I use it every day and think it's great.

    Anyway, the default works with hotmail/outlook.

    the web based hotmail/outlook is great, but its imap sync isn't...

    tried the default, I cannot delete emails, deleted emails just pop right back a short while later... also, some of the attachments doesn't download right. sometimes can't be opened.

    That's strange because I've been using the Mail app for years with my school Outlook account. Attachments are fine, and I don't typically delete emails.

    I did have issues when I had a community college Live account. I couldn't get it to sync at all.

    I've had the same complaints with the default Mail application for years. I've given up and just use the web interface ( for all my email needs for the time being unfortunately. =(

    Same complaint about Hotmail and default

    I'm currently using MailTab for Outlook

    Best thing about it is you don't have to download all the emails to your computer. Not the best rendering but it beats logging into hotmail's web interface all the time.

    Tried MailTab for outlook, it does not seem to support multiple accounts...

    If the gmail to issues are fixed could maybe pass all hotmail messages to gmail and config gmail to send from hotmail. Convoluted but it may work.

    yes, they solved the gmail problem, but sadly not for hotmail, I have 2 hotmail accounts, one for personal use one for additional business I do besides my main work. so I need to manage the emails as well, receiving through Gmail isn't very practical, in addition, I live in China, Google does not play well with local regulations so all google services here do not perform very well. it's getting better recently but not as good as microsoft and apple's product line.

    I have this problem too, but not consistently or all the time.
