Re: Windows Livemail

I have just weakened and tried livemail but it does not seem to be able to see all the folders I have on web mail, am I doing something wrong or is it just how it is set up.

You have set it up as a POP3 account instead of an IMAP account. To save me repeating everything have a look at this thread.

Re: Windows Livemail

Yes I have set it up as POP3 but do not see any folders except inbox, drafts, sent, junk and deleted items. I see all my hotmail folders.

Re: Windows Livemail

The folders you see in a POP account are just folders that are present on your computer. POP accounts do not replicate or synchronise with  what you see when you use webmail. IMAP does replicates and synchronises what you see on webmail.
