Outlook 2007, Office Live Mail and Windows Live Mail

    Home computer I use Outlook 2007 for my email. I have 2 email accounts a
    MSN and an Office Live account, I assume they are essentially both Hotmail
    accounts. I use the Outlook Connector and everything is great.

    I have a laptop that I work from, I took off Outlook 2007 and only use
    Office Live to access email. Everything is still great. Changes I make in
    Outlook, deletes, move to folders, etc. are reflected in my Office Live mail.
    Only real problem is I can't import vcards in to the Office Live contacts.

    So I install Windows Live Mail. Low and behold, it has a ton of emails that
    I've deleted from either Outlook or Office Live and shows emails unread that
    I've viewed in both.

    I'm sure I have some POP3, Hotmail, Imap or something set up wrong but I'm
    not sure where to start. I really only need to use Live Mail to import a
    vcards into contacts and then get them into Office live but if I can get a
    better Outlook type function, I'm game.

    Ideas, simplifications?

  2. If you want your Hotmail account to synchronize across clients, then you
    must set the Account/Server type to HTTP in all clients. IMAP is not an
    option for Hotmail. POP3 will not synchronize across clients.
