    Please, for the love of God, let me know if someone has figured this out yet...

    I'm switching an office over to Mac, and they use a webmail version of MSN.com for email (username@msn.com).

    How in the hell can I get those emails into Apple Mail? If possible, I could forward them to a new email account we setup (@ourbusinessname.com), but for the love of all that is holy, I can't seem to figure this out.

    Advice? Httpmail DOES NOT work. No forwarding options for msn.com.

    Great tool, shareware and cost $20.00. Strange that Httpmail wouldn't work for msn... I remember seeing an example in the documentation showing a msn address, but I'll take your word for it.

    When my internet was through MSN I contacted them about setting up my email account through Thunderbird, and I was told their mail service doesn't work with anything but Outlook.

    They didn't take into consideration that some people would want to do just that so badly that they'd reverse engineer their proprietary email protocol. :)
