How to configure ur hotmail account on Evolution [ubuntu]

hey hey..... before you read... check this "OUUUUUF 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 :D 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

2500streamtcpnowaitnobody/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 :D 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 :D Refrences: for the hotwayd http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=200408 for the freepops http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=968821
