How to use the HTTPMail Plugin with Apps
I spent ages yesterday looking for information on how to set up the HTTPMail Plugin, and couldn't find any, so perhaps this might be useful to some people. If you want to get mail into Apple's Mail app, then you need to do the following:
  1. Upgrade your hotmail account to hotmail plus (currentl £14.99 per year)
  2. Download the HTTPMail Plugin and install
  3. Open Apple Mail and create a new account using the following settings:
    • Account Type: httpmail
    • Account Description: Whatever you like
    • Full Name: Your name
    • Email Address:
    • Incoming mail server:
    • User Name:
    • Password: Your password
That's it! I presume that this will also work for all of the other country specific hotmail accounts.

Is UK the issue?

I've been using this plugin for a couple of years and it has worked fine, although lately it has developed an issue, without upgrading to Hotmail Plus.

Is it the UK domain that causes the problem?
