I'm new in Mac OS and I'm using Mavericks. I'm trying to set up my Hotmail account with the Mac mail client. I learnt that in September Microsoft finally supported IMAP so I can set up the incoming/outgoing server with Mac Mail, following this guidance:


But I encountered a problem: The client couldn't sync the new incoming mail. I mean, when a new mail comes into my Hotmail, the client won't tell me like my iPhone(with a "1" in red circle) does. I have to manually click "sync", then receive the new mail - which seems stupid... I'd rather use the webpage without the function of "reminder"....

Could anyone please help? Thanks!
