Windows 7: Windows Live Mail query

I tried using IMAP with Gmail in WLM and found it to be too much trouble. I strongly recommend POP.

The instructions I followed said to enable IMAP, and things do appear to be working with the test messages I've sent and received. Now I just need to do the Hotmail accounts.

I'm using WLM 2010 are you ?
Hotmail will not need setting, its all done automatically by WLM.

No, it's 2011.

I have looked at how to do the Hotmail. It looks as if that is what will happen, so I should be OK. Famous last words!!

Yes, thanks for that.

Both Hotmail accounts seem to be set up OK now.

Strange thing happened to my email connected to my domain name, though. The Draft, Sent, and Trash folders appear to have set themselves as sub-folders of the Inbox. On the webmail service of that account they are positioned normally at the same level. I only have one email in the Inbox, which downloaded as soon as I set up the account - I didn't know it was there as the account has only just been set up with my new website. In talks with my webhost to see if they can shed any light on why this might have happened.

Can you post an image of your folders. Remember, I'm using POP so Storage folders are kept hidden as I don't need them.

Here are screenshots of the folders. I've also noticed that the Gmail folders appear to have nested folders where I would have thought they would be all on one level.

When I sent a test email yesterday, from the Image and Light account, the sent mail went into the Sent folder of my general Storage Folders, not the Sent folder of the actual account. It was then I noticed the nesting and wondered whether that had anything to do with it, although I also sent a test email using the Gmail account and that has correctly been stored in the Gmail Sent folder.

As I said before, the folders on the webmail server of my Image and Light account are all on the same level. On the Gmail it seems to have mixed up what folders are visible by default and what appears in the additional drop-down of folders on the webmail server.

The Local Folders under the Storage Folders contain my old emails imported from OE. I only need them for reference, as the account used for those emails is no longer active since changing ISP. I haven't set up an email account for our new ISP as I thought it simpler to use a web-based account, should we ever change again in the future, to save informing everyone of the change.
