Mac Mail & Hotmail - Mails only shown with delay

Hi guys!

I have some issues with using hotmail on my new mac (Yosemite).

Generally, I think it is set up in the right way (ports, password, incoming & outcoming server etc.) as mails get synchronised. But: This often happens with e.g. 30 hours delay, as then all mails of the last 30 hours appear at once in my mac mail.
On the other hand, sometimes I receive them instantly and I just cannot figure out why it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Do you have any advice what I can do or where this error is routed?

Thank you in advance for your help!!!
