I have a MacBook Pro since April. Since then, I have been trying to find a way to be able to use all my hotmail account on it. I have three hotmail accounts, all my main accounts.
On my PC I use Windows Live Mail, but it doesn't work on a MAC. I know I can have Windows on my MAC, but why on earth did I get a Mac if I am going to use Windows on it
So, my problem is that all programmes I've used so far (MacMail, Thunderbird, etc. etc) download only the INBOX, and not the subfolders (I have around 30 subfolders in each hotmail account). I know that I can manually put all emails into the INBOX, download them as Inbox and then create subfolders and re-arrange them - but this will take me 4 days,at least, not to mention that I won't be able to keep my automatically sorting rules ... so, this is not an option.
I've read that I could use Entourage, but that ... unfortunately, I would have to upgrade to a hotmail plus, and pay around 20 USD /account/year. Again, this is out of question.
What I don't understand is why i can download my hotmail on my HTC phone as a exchange account (I get all the folders, erc), and this won't work on Mac computer ....
So, do you know any way in which I can have all my hotmail accounts on a mac application?
ps Microsoft should develop Windows Live Mail for macs too -it's so strange ... they have some features for Macs, but not the mail ...
