Got to this Link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/outlook/send-receive-from-app
If your email app doesn’t support Exchange ActiveSync, it might use IMAP. Unlike POP, which only syncs your inbox, IMAP syncs all your email folders.
Use the following settings in your email app.
- Incoming (IMAP) Server
- Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com
- Port: 993
- Encrypted Connection: SSL
- Outgoing (SMTP) Server
- Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com
- Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
- Authentication: Yes
- Encrypted Connection: TLS
- User name: Your email address
- Password: Your password
This Just worked for me perfectly. No more Mbox app...woohoo!!
- Incoming (IMAP) Server

I've just bought myself a new MacbookPro running Mavericks. I'm completely new to macs but considerate myself fairly computer literate. I've configured mail using the imap settings as listed on outlook.com - essentially the same method as Christma01 describes.
It has worked partially. All of my folders (everything but my inbox) sync perfectly.
However my inbox itself doesn't sync at all.
So: I can send outgoing mail, folders other than inbox sync and work correctly but I cannot view old or newly received emails in my inbox.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong?
I have removed and added the account using the same details which hasn't changed the outcome.
I also have a gmail account configured in the app (which works like clockwork by the way) in case its relevant that there are multiple accounts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have exactly the same problem but in reverse... I can see my hotmail inbox and it is synced but I don't have any of my hotmail folders...
I configured the imap settings in the same way too. Weird!
Mine is a new MacBook Air running Mavericks OS X.
Any help also much appreciated!

Hello, I just tried Chrisma01's solution and found that it does work, as far as importing folders from Hotmail.
But here is my issue: for the last 4 years, I've been using the Httpmail plugin and keeping my folders organized locally on my harddrive. I don't keep a lot of old, legacy mail in my hotmail account online.
Last week I was forced to upgrade to Snow Leopard, and Httpmail plugin no longer functions.
So I can use Chrisma01's technique to get folders back, but in the process I seem to have lost all of my local folder organization and archive from 2009-2013 (though I know these messages are saved on my harddrive somewhere).
Any ideas? Thanks!
