hey hey….. before you read… check thisOUUUUUF At Last !!! (Hotmail & POP3)

hi,

here are the steps to configure your free hotmail account on evolution mail client as a POP3 mail in ubuntu

well.. open a terminal and copy & paste those commands or write them ..as u like😀

first make sure that your system is up to date

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install inetutils-inetd
sudo apt-get install hotway hotsmtp
sudo gedit /etc/inetd.conf

the last command will open u a file “inetd.conf”

append this line to it

2500		stream	tcp	nowait	nobody	/usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/bin/hotsmtp

then save and exit and write this line

sudo /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd restart

then startup evolution or the mail client u use and edit the configuration as the following

Receive Server type: POP
Server: 127.0.0.1
Username: xxx@hotmail.com (same as above)
Security: No encryption
Authentication type: Password
(Remember password checkbox is up to you)

Send Server type: SMTP
Server: 127.0.0.1:2500
[X] Server requires authentication (check this box)
Use Secure Connection: No encryption
Authentication Type: PLAIN
Username: xxx@hotmail.com (same as above)
(Optional Remember password checkbox)

well.. after i have did all those  evolution could send but didn’t recieve mail getting this error

-ERR Unable to find folder inbox on remote server

so i used another program to recieve my mail😀

just write this commad in the terminal

sudo apt-get install freepops

and edit in the mail client the server ip:port as follows

Receive Server type: POP
Server: 127.0.0.1:2000
Username: xxx@hotmail.com (same as above)
Security: No encryption
Authentication type: Password
(Remember password checkbox is up to you)

and then voila !!🙂

have a nice hotmail😀
