I just bought a brand new Macbook Pro 15" and I already have an iPhone 4. I'm using Hotmail (now called Outlook) for email management. Since I'm using a Macbook now, I want to use Mail.app to manage my emails since I have multiple email accounts.
Here's my problem :
I have set my Hotmail account in Mail, and everything's working well. But When I read the email (of the same email account) on my iPhone, it's still mark as unread on my Macbook Pro after reading it on my iPhone. But if I go on hotmail.com and log in my account, if I read a new email on my iphone that appears as unread in Hotmail, it will change as "read" in hotmail. So looks like the emails are synced.
I've made some research and looks like IMAP emails accounts can do what I need. Hotmail seems to be a POP3 mail server. But if when logged in hotmail website, it works with my iPhone, why can't it work using the Mac Mail app? Some website seems to be saying that you can't do what I need with Hotmail (only Gmails, and other IMAP mail server)...and some say it'S possible.
Thanks a lot!
(I'm on Macbook Pro 2012, OSX 10.8)
