Outlook 2010 & Hotmail Connector

    Question

  • Hi, I Have installed the 32bit Office 2010 Suite and using Outlook for my work mail and personal mail, Outlook does a superb job of syncing my work mail using imap and mailtraq, however, it does a poor job of keeping my hotmail account in sync, it's sooOOOO slow!!!! i have to wait at least 10 minutes for an email that messenger, live mail and my phone got instantly (Outlook is obviously lying when it says connected to windows live hotmail, it should say i'll connect when i feel like it)... i dont use live calendar or contacts, and i know i can get my mail via POP3, however I DO NOT want it via POP3 as i don't want to then have to mark as read via other means (which is what i thought was the whole purpose of sync)... I have tried a few of the suggestions on here, non have worked, surely there is a solution to this annoying problem???

    P.S. I love the alert me check box, i won't hold my breath waiting for outlook to notify me of my hotmail mail...lol...

  • hello, I was looking for answer pertaining to why Outlook 2010 is so slow when using my windows live account via hotmail connector. I do not wish to change my email to a pop address, nor do I want to change it to a http email either. I do like the added features of syncig contacts, calendar's and email's but i think the cost is pretty high. Ever since I switched email addresses from gmail to live, i've had nothing but poor connectivity becuase of the exchange like features. Why is connector so slow? Is their a workaround or a solution to this problem. I've searched the interne and can only find others who are quite frustration with this poor service. please help. fruzzl

  • Hi, I'm not trying to hijack this thread but I am having the same exact issue.  Did these answers fix the problem?

     

    The answers marked as such did not fix the problem of Live Mail getting mail instantly (and way before outlook 2010) as opposed to Outlook 2010, which longer to receive the same email.
