I cannot see my Hotmail Mail Boxes in my iMac OS X.These were created previously when using a non-Mac PC.  How do I get access to them?

    My understanding is that Hotmail supports POP but not IMAP.

     

    POP only transfers files from the server Inbox to your local Inbox - it cannot see other folders on the server.

     

    Most people prefer IMAP.

     

    Google supports both POP and IMAP.

     

    I use POP on several computers with Thunderbird and keep them in step copying all outgoing mails to myself and only using Archive for local folders.
