Hotmail and POP3 from 1 Mail Product running on Vista
Posted on 2007-03-27
Hi - I have a Vista user that needs the ability to use one mail product to both send and receive hotmail, and also have access to imported identities from his historical Outlook Express 6. He has tried Windows Mail for the Outlook side of things, but it would appear Windows Mail does not support Hotmail.
We have also tried Thunderbird, but even by taking previous hotmail server settings from OE6 that worked, we cannot seem to connect to the Hotmail servers.
Ultimately I am looking for soeme advice on a product that can cope with:-
a) Import of OE6 mail
b)Does not suffer from the PST or similar size restrictions
c)Will allow the send and receive of POP3 mail
d)Will incorporate Hotmail send and receive
e) Runs under Vista :)
It seems that Ms had all of these things sorted with OE6 on XP or similar and now everything has changed with Vista !!!!!!
Help Please :)
