Ubuntu :: How Do I Set Up Evolution To Access Hotmail Account

im really impressed with the OS so far, exactly what i've been looking for. the install was a little rough, it hung up on "getting the time from the server" for almost 15 minutes even though i was connected to the internet. then for the first few bootups, the ubuntu boot screen was a box that only took up 1/4 of the screen. but that went away. anyway - im in now and its all looking good, but theres a few things i would like to be able to know how to do.

#1 - how do i set up evolution to access my hotmail account?

#2 - just noticed this while uploading an avatar to this site, the box that pops up that lets you browse your files - theres no view change? i have to click each individual picture to see what it is; can this be changed?

#3 - what is currently the best way to get an expose-like feature going in ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Hotmail On Evolution?
I have no idea and no understanding of the configuration of Evolution I mean you need to specify something called a "server" for sending and another separate one for receiving. What does this mean? I mean there are plenty of guides that tell you how to but majority of guides of no insight to help you understand what is going on. Also I don't know about you but I find it an incredibly shallow and not to mention fraught experience following guides that contain customized elements because I never know the specifications applicable to me. You can't always just copy and paste commands as sometimes variables are tailored to the instructor's situation.

What is a "server"? What are the servers involved in having an email client?"" is specified by default. What is pop3?What should I specify as my server type? How do I find out?"SMTP" is specified by default as server type. What is SMTP?What is "inet daemon"? It is mentioned in some guides.What is "hotway"?"This will set the inet daemon to listen to incoming calls on port 2500, and forward the connection to the hotsmtp daemon. Now, save your file, exit gedit, and restart your inetd server using the following command" - what is "port 2500"? This is why Linux will never be able to compete with Windows. Think how easy it is to set up Outlook. It doesn't assume obscure knowledge of technical aspects.

Ubuntu :: Hotmail Exchange With Evolution In 10.10?
I 've got an hotmail (live-mail) account, that I'm using on my iPod with Microsoft Exchange. This is really working fine, so I was very happy when I read, that you can use this feature with Evolution Mail.

Now my Problem is, that the Settings I use on my iPod won't work with Evolution.

I think the Problem is the OWA URL cause whatever I do it can't connect to this Server.

I'll give you the Settings, that work on my iPod:

Password: xxx

Does anybody know the OWA URL of the Hotmail-Server or does every Account have one of it's own?

Ubuntu Security :: Spam Received From Own Hotmail Account
After reading everything that says you don't need an anti-virus for Linux. OR Linux doesn't get viruses. Guess what I have a Virus. I don't know which one, but it is sending out spam emails from my webmail, MSN, account. I do not have a local client installed. I am guessing it is linking into MSN through Pidgin, getting the addresses there, and sending the spam, somehow, through MSN. Actually one MSN and one Hotmail account. I also have not been able to find an anti-virus program for Ubuntu. There do not seem to be any listed in the software repositories that Ubuntu links into. How do I get rid of it? My contacts are starting to get upset.

Fedora :: Using KMail - Empty Hotmail Web Account
Yesterday I tried to use KMail with my hotmail account. First mistake I made was not to check "Leave fetched messages on the server". The obvious result of that was that I had empty hotmail (web) account. I've found this but its for Thunderbird to upload your messages back on to the server. If I can put all my messages back into hotmail server that would be great. Since I do use web account as well. KMail is only on my home PC.

Ubuntu :: Evolution - Hotmail: Getting Messages Every Time?
I just synchronized my hotmail account with evolution and it works flawlessly, however every time I click send-receive it stars to download mail by mail (more than 10,000, so it takes a while) and it won't check if I got new messages until it is done. The first time it happened I thought it was a normal thing, and that evo won't scan ever again from my hotmail account. Does anyone know how to stop doing that?

I have another brief question, I would like to know if there's a way that when I read a message on evolution it will also mark as read the same message on my hotmail account.

General :: Evolution 'stole' Messages From Hotmail Inbox?
I just installed ubuntu for the first time today, and setup Evolution to check my email from my hotmail account. All went fine, I downloaded all my emails from the last 7 years but then when I actually logged in to my email account on all of my messages were gone and my inbox empty. I was hoping that it would downlaod a copy of my messages - I still want a copy in my hotmail inbox for backup just in case something happens to my computer. Anyway, so my question is there a way to put them back into my hotmail account? I know its not as though I have lost them forever, I just would like the last 7 years of important emails on there in just in case.

General :: Opening Emails In Hotmail Account, Running Back Track 4
First thing I will say is I am new this site and computers in general. I have pc and am running back track 4. Today the computer shut off, maybe an over heat. I restarted it and it turned off again even before the reboot finished. I put an additional cooling fan in front of the air intake and the computer is staying on but now will not open the emails in the my hot mail account. It seems to open the account, I can see what is in my in box just can not open them. Moving the curser over the unopened email usually made what is in task bar at the bottom of the page change. As of now it continues to say "Done" in stead of showing a task. Moving the curser over other things on the same page will make the task bar say "javascript" only.

Fedora :: Evolution Won't Remember Hotmail Password (or Send Emails)
I'm running Evolution 2.30.3 on fc13.x64 and I've been getting a funny problem for a while, that now really annoys me:

even if the settings for my hotmail account are correct, Evolution will ask for the password every time I log in. Also, since I keep it open, after a while (~30 minutes) it "forgets" somehow the password and asks for the password again. This time, anyway, it won't work and I have to reset Evolution again.

Bonus question: even if hotmail is configured correctly for receiving and sending ( etc.), it won't send email, but will remain stuck on "sending".

Software :: Sync With A Free Hotmail Account - Delete An Email Within The Client It Remains On The Server
Have anyone used an email client that stays in sync with a free Hotmail account? I have setup Claws Mail but when I delete an email within the client it remains on the server. I remember this being the same for other email clients. Is there any client that will stay in sync? If I delete an email from within the client it will also be deleted from Hotmail's web bases interface.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Add New Email Account To Evolution
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook edition on my Asus EEEPC and cannot add a new email account to Evolution. I'm using Evolution 2.30.3, and whenever I open "preferences" the window extends below the bottom of my screen. I'm unable to resize or move the window in order to select any of the options below the bottom.I'm sure there is a simple technique to fix this, but it is beyond this newb.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Mail Won't Allow New Account Setup
I have been using evolution for my email for about a year.It currently has 2 accounts set up.I want to create a third account so I went to Edit > Preferences > Accounts > Add.On the first page I click on "forward" and on the second page enter the new details. New name, new email address and when I'm finished I click on forward again and the second screen comes up. It has some server details on it iirc. Sadly after 2 seconds or so this screen disappears and the very first screen re-appears (where the only thing to click on is "forward").What's happening? Is 2 accounts the maximum? Any clues please?

Ubuntu :: Evolution Lost Account Settings
my computer recently ran out of disk space, and for whatever reason (presumably bad coding!) that caused Evolution to freak out and deny all knowledge of my email account.Fortunately, all the email is still in present in ~/.evolution/mail/imap/ but I have no idea how to make Evolution realise that and let me load it again.

Ubuntu :: Forward All The Messages From Evolution To A Mail Account?
I have set up evolution with two POP account and it deleted all my mails from the servers, migrating them on the local machine.

How could I forward all the messages from Evolution to a mail account so I can access them over the Internet?

Forwarding all of them as attachment doesn't, because many of the emails themselves have attachment and it gives an error saying attachment type not supported.

If I try forwarding inline or quoted I have to forward them one by one and there are around 4000.

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Evolution Performance With POP3 Account
I first seriously tried to switch to Ubuntu. I now find myself very rarely booting into Windows XP, and all the apps I need to use have free replacements.However, after porting about 15-20 years worth of email from Outlook (via Thunderbird) into Evolution, I'm finding Evo's performance has gone down the toilet.It was snappy to start with, but over time has got slower. I regularly get long waits as it displays notes that it is retrieving message number <whatever>.

I'm using POP3/SMTP for most email (I've a low-usage IMAP account with too), but it seems like some sort of issue where I'd want to optimise or "defragment" my local mail store.Has anyone any ideas or suggestions on this?My ~/.evolution/mail folder contains about 2.5Gb if that's any help.This is with 9.10 Ubuntu; I have done some basic tuning on the setup, but not a lot.
