Hey Guys.

Quick question. I'm at a friend's house and he just bought a new MBP, and we are configuration his apple mail. I set up his @live.ca account through POP, but he prefers setting it up through IMAP. How can we go about doing that.

Thanks ;)

@live.ca along with other "hotmail" addresses do not support imap.

Hotmail only directly supports POP3. Even with paid accounts (I used to have one!).

There is a third party product called "mBox Mail for Mac" which provides IMAP access to your Hotmail account for Mac or iPhone/iPod touch. It is compatable with Mail (as well as Entrouage and Thunderbird).
