Re: MSN and Mail on IMAC
Is this is an email account you are getting with your internet, then call your ISP for how to set it up. If this is a free email you just signed up for on line, then there is a good chance that it is a web based HTTP mail, and if that is the case (which most of MSN/Hotmail is) then Apple's Mail app doesn't support HTTP email accounts. If you can still find it, there was once a plug-in called HTTPmail for Apple's Mail that would allow to check your MSN/Hotmail, but that was a couple of years ago that I last saw anything on it.
it's human nature to stand in line...
