    Using Daniel's Plug-In I am running my hotmail address on OS X Mail. However, there's an option in Hotmail called "Send and receive mail from other e-mail accounts". Can I do this on OS X Mail through Hotmail?

    Also, where in the WORLD is the Trash Can on OSX Mail?! I can't find it anywhere!

    You can reply on this or email me directly at lebhel55@hotmail.com

    Thanks guys...

    You can simply add other accounts to your Mail program in Mail -> Preferences -> Accounts. There's no need to go through Hotmail to do this.

    The trash is under Mailboxes.

    The problem is that my school email account cannot be accessed on other email clients. On my school email I just chose an option to have it all forwarded to my Hotmail address and then I chose the option to be able to send email using my school email address. It's kind of confusing...I don't really know how to explain it, unfortunately. :-(

    I finally found the trash bin...it just took about 30 minutes for it to finally show up for some reason.

    Also, I'm having an impossible time having OS X Mail sync with Hotmail's server, so that when I delete an item on Mail then it deletes it on the server as well. Now when I delete something it just grays the image in the Inbox, but doesn't let me delete it or move it to the trash bin.


    I keep messing with the options to no good outcome. I've never had this much trouble with an email client...I thought this was Apple. ;-P

    It's Apple, but it's Apple using a third-party hack to interface with Microsoft. Guess whose fault this is? :rolleyes:

    Sorry, I can't help you. The only suggestion I can offer is to try a Gmail account.
