Nothing in Inbox - fine with WLM.

Using Outlook 2007 and latest Windows Live Mail. When I setup my to Hotmail accounts in Windows
Live Mail (using latest 32bit XP with all updates and my Office has all updates) I see all my email
as I do when I use webmail. But when I use Outlook nothing shows up in my Inbox for both Hotmail
accounts. The outbox of each work fine (SMTP).

I just set up the Hotmail account as a POP and its working fine:
995 as port for incoming with SSL
587 as port for outgoing with "encrypted connection" not SSL but set to Auto.

So does HTTP mail not work with Outlook like it does with Windows Live Mail?

There were no error messages in OL2007 when trying to receive e-mails?

Were there actually any e-mails sitting in the Inbox folder (when using
the webmail client to check) that had never been before retrieved into
OL2007? That is, were the actually some new e-mails in your mailbox for
OL2007 to find?

And yet you never mentioned installing the Outlook Connector add-on to
Oultook 2007. That adds support for HTTP/Deltasync (versus the old
HTTP/WebDAV access method).

WLM uses Deltasync. No version of Outlook (or Outlook Express) supports
Deltasync. For Outlook (versions 2003, and up), you need to install the
add-on to add Deltasync support.
