Default Thunderbird's WebMail addon (used together with `-Hotmail' extension of it) download sometimes all the e-mails since some date, even if they have already been retrieved at another period

Hi,

As explained in the title, I am using Icedove 2.0.0.22 (20090706) with
some add-ons, such as `WebMail'. This add-on lets it fetch your e-mails
from mail servers only dealing with special protocols (not as POP, IMAP,
etc.). I use it together with `WebMail -Hotmail', that is, to check my
Hotmail e-mails with Icedove. It works pretty well after some config,
but it sometimes download many e-mails which have already been
retrieved. It must be a bug in WebMail's add-on. Has somebody already
encountered this problem?

Thanks.

Hi, don't know about your problem but there's no need any more for
webmail hotmail addon, just use pop3.live.com as your pop server and
smtp.live.com for smtp. It works with "old" accounts in @hotmail too.


Hope it helps.

+1 for this suggestion.

I remember the days when I had to set up a computer to get Hotmail
using the WebMail add-on. It never seemed to work quite right.

But then a magical thing happened and Microsoft started having a
POP3 service for hotmail accounts. We kicked that WebMail add-on
to the curb, and never looked back.

Have a nice day,

Phil
