I've tried a dozen of tutorials for that and I cannot find why it don't work, I can send mail but not receive it ...

I've tried also thunderbird but my second hotmail don't work, I used it to learn how to config claws-mail without any luck and there's no tool to migrate from thunderbird to claws-mail ...

If you've got some ideas for me, I would love to know them and try it !!!

are you sure you've entered your POP3 adress correctly?

Claws can use the POP3 and SMTP functions, so you shouldn't have any trouble installing it...

alternatively you could reinstall Claws and use the wizard described here: http://www.claws-mail.org/manual/claws-mail-manual.html#start%5Fwizard


Hotmail: POP3 = pop3.live.com (port 995) SMTP= smtp.live.com (port 25)

Gmail: POP3 = pop.gmail.com (port 995) SMTP = smtp.gmail.com (port 465)

Check if your firewall has the used ports open and don't forget to enable pop in gmail (see settings)
