    How do I setup my Hotmail to sync with my outlook as well as list all my various hotmail created folders as well?

    I tried various things and so far can't get the folders to also list and sync in outlook 2007 and outlook 2010.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,
    PSX

    I haven't done it in a while...
    But I'm pretty sure when you create the e-mail, you just put in your hotmail address when it asks for the e-mail and it auto fills everything else in.
    However, when I did this, you also had to either have the subscription or have your account around since the days when it was free to do.

    Beyond that, I have no idea.

    I try with outlook connector and so far no luck. It used to work then i format my computer and problem started.

    Just to be safe I even paid for the Hotmail Plus $20 a year option.

    Still the accounts wont load in my outlook.

    Any suggestions?

    The reason for that is because the website is imap and the outlook connection is pop. The only way to get imap to work is to use outlook connector which you can get from windows live. or use pop if that doesn't work ..

    I just used the connector with lookout 2010 - worked fine.

    I've since moved my mail back to a mailserver I look after due the the fact that working with a mail server in london is faster than one on texas :) Also thunderbird is a better client for handling IMAP mail anyway.
