anybody knows how to set up osx mail so it syncs with my hotmail account?
I'm trying to find hotmail's server names and whatever i need to sync it with no succes.

There is no way I know of to directly do that. I have set up a script in Entourage that pulls my Outlook mail, delets junk, then redirects it to my Mac.com mail account. The process is transparent, but requires Entourage or Outlook Express.

Yeah, last I recall Microsoft uses a custom, proprietary protocol for accessing Hotmail through Outlook/Entourage. Mail can not support it natively without some kind of major update.

I've been using a piece of software called Mail Forward, it works pretty well. If you are into the Unix underpinnings, there is a Debian package called gotmail that does the same thing. If anyone knows how to use that, I would love to know as well...

I believe only Entourage can work with hotmail.
