I'm looking for some help with accessing hotmail mail through the javamail api. I can get normal imap4 and pop3 accounts to work, but hotmail always returns an AuthenticationFailedException. here's the code i use: Properties props = System.getProperties(); Session session = Session.getInstance(props); Store store = null; Folder f = null; store = new POP3Store(session, new URLName(host)); store.connect(host, user, passwd); Anyone with any ideas or code snippets would be greatly welcomed! PS. in outlook it classifys hotmail as a HTTP server, is this more microsoft bullshit or does it actually mean something?
