Hi, as a rule, POP accounts will only have Inbox, Sent, Trash, & Junk/Spam boxes.

The IMAP protocol replicates folders but the POP protocol only downloads the contents of the server's Inbox to the clients Inbox. Hotmail does not support IMAP - it only supports POP.
1 - Use Gmail - it supports POP and IMAP
2 - Move all messages (via web or other means) to the server's Inbox to download via POP protocol
Some POP clients have default settings which delete from server without warning either initially or a few days later - typically 14 days. Find these settings and adjust as required.
