    Default Great news! Hotmail Plus users now have POP access. No more izymail etc

    Sorry if this has been reported elsewhere but about a week ago Microsoft opened up POP access for Hotmail (plus users only). I was using httpwebmail on my Mac, now it works great and is so much faster.

    Works great on the IPhone too.

    yeah thats hotmial plus so you have to pay $20 bucks for it. It may be easier for people to pay the $20 but I just migrated to gmail which is free. I tried Izy mail but it sucks

    Just to clarify, Microsoft have not had POP access to email (even with Hotmail Plus) for a few years now. They used to, then they removed it. I signed up to Hotmail Plus a few months ago and there was no POP access then. I think they used webdav or similar.

    They do indeed have it, I have Hotmail Plus and have just added the settings and have a new Hotmail account in my iPhone email!

    HOWEVER, it seems to collect email in the order of oldest first! Anyone else getting this problem, and know how to fix it?...

    Yes! That's what I am getting too. I thought it was fine but no - oldest emails are downloaded first.

    Oddly it does download "newer" emails when I delete emails, but they are not the latest emails just the next newest! I have 7000 emails, I am stuck!
