Outlook installation

Thanks, I started to try Thunderbird see comments below. I'm top posting because for a while now
hotmail refuses to mark reply text in any menu I can find. So, I've been using a script- I copy
the original to clip board, run my script and it writes the marked text back out to paste into homtail
web form. I guess Ideally I'd just like to type "mail" get a bunch of headers and if I am forced to
read hi-tech html mail pipe the message into lynx lol. Thunderbird did use about 30 percent of my
600 or mbytes of RAM so it is still a lot - even the gmail webpage was about 200 or so.

While piping into lynx may be a little much, I have noticed a lot of web math now looks like latex.
If you must send fancy email latex may be nice, no idea if there is now a mime type :)
Compiling a latex document is a lot more effort AFAICT than displaying html but it is easier to make
it human readable. 

I tried Thunderbird with two accounts I don't care about - a gmail and yahoo account. The gmail account
appears ok but the thing crashes when I tried to add the yahoo account - sent crash report fwiw.

My only real concern is deleting messages on the hotmail server and IIRC there is some setting for
that when I setup Outlook connector. All I really want to do is download the old messages from hotmail into a flat file
that I can search with grep or index myself and then do incremental downloads. Although having a single
client with single interface that works would help a lot but I'm only using one account now  it
does not have basic features in places I can find.

Sure, the settings are widely publicised:


This one also reminds you that you need to enable IMAP/POP3 access
inside Hotmail itself first:




I just Googled "hotmail imap settings".

Me personally, I have Gmail retrieve my Hotmail (and Yahoo mail) into
labelled folders using POP3. This means 2 levels of spam filtering,
another bonus.

Then on my Mac, the default Mail.app synchs my Gmail inbox to a local
copy in case of disaster...
