Hotmail for Thunderbird

  1. Hey guys, how's it going. I'm trying to convert from the evil empire's browser and email software, to go 100% Mozilla. I love Firefox. It's a great alternative to Explorer. But I want to use Thunderbird also. The only plugin I've found for it to be able to access Hotmail, actually downloads and deletes the messages from Hotmail. Outlook Express just downloads new mail and keeps it on the server - which is a feature I really like. I would like Thunderbird to do the same thing.

    Anybody seen any other options for being able to do this? Any links to some good plugins that will do this? Thanks! :D

    I do not know which of these you've already tried & I can't exactly tell you which one leaves the messages on the Hotmail server.

    For as long as you use hotmail, you will never be able to escape the Evil Empire. ;)
