I used to use httpmail..now it doesnt work! How do I get hotmail to run with it?
MacFreepops. Works fine under Leopard.
It works fine to receive, but how do you send with it?
I can send fine if I use my gmail server, but then the receiver thinks I sent it from gmail (duh). I don't want that, because that's my personal mail, hotmail and yahoo are for all the registration and msn.
I'm going to use MacFreePOPs, but only when its Universal...they sure are taking their time with that!
I'm waiting and hoping that httpmail will release a version for 10.5!! I hope so. I re-mailed the guy who made it and asked him about it. I hope he e-mails me back with good news.
My post in here has the fix (only for hotmail plus users at the moment)
In your GMail Accounts settings, you can add extra "From" addresses. Then, in your Apple Mail Accounts settings, edit the e-mail address you've set for the account. Change "email@example.com" to "firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com". When you next compose an email in Mail, you'll see a drop-down of From addresses
Instructions to get Hotmail to work on Mac Mail for Leopard!
First preferences (under MacMail) then go to add account ...and then
Incoming Mail Server: pop3.live.com (obviously you must have WindowsLive hotmail)
User Name: email address
Then go to advanced settings...
Port: 995 check "Use SSL"
Hope this helps.....
I've just updated all my stuff to my @mac email and my webmail email as I'm trying to phase out my Hotmail one.
Hotmail sucks, I wish I had never got an account.
Pity I have to have an account for MSN Messenger since Apple doesn't want @mac users using that email on MSN Messenger.
