    Question evolution wont retieve hotmail anymore

    Hello,
    I had evolution working w/hotwayd to retrieve my hotmail live account & then last month I noticed I couldnt retrieve my mail anymore. I did some research online & found since Live mail has pop3 access now I didnt need hotway anymore. So I removed hotway & setup account using settings I found on several online postings. Unfortunately everytime I try to retrieve my mail I get an error message "Could not connect to 127.0.0.1: Connection refused". Anybody have a suggestion on what could be going on? I've gone over the settings several times to make sure they are correct. It's almost as if its still looking to 127.0.0.1 for hotway & that is obviously not there anymore.
    Thanx
    openSUSE 11.1 Gnome 2.24.1 PIII @1gHz uname -r

    Find the 127.0.0.1 setting and changing it to mail.hotmail.com or
    whatever the mail server name is.

    I have some completely other suggestion: drop the hotmail account. Hotmail is a true mess. I removed all hotmail-contacts from everywhere, since half of those accounts has been hacked, and keeps sending me rubbish and links to conficker infected sites.

    NB. M$ upto now has refused to delete my old hotmail account. Various requests over the past year, no actions taken.
