    synchronizing hotmail folders (Outlook 2003)

    I recently upgraded to Outlook 2003 from 2002. Including a hotmail account, I have two top-level folders, showing my main pst and my hotmail account. If I remember correctly from 2002, when I set up the hotmail account, I could click on the top-level folder, the one labeled hotmail, and indicate which folders I wanted to synchronize and whether or not to download headers or entire messages for each folder, just as you can still do in Outlook Express (I have previously set up filters within hotmail to deliver new mail to different folders). When I logged on using OL2002 I could see in the folder tree how many new messages I had in each hotmail folder. Unfortunately, it doesn't work this way in 2003, and I have to click on each subfolder one at a time to look for new messages. There doesn't seem to be a way to change the synchronization settings for hotmail on OL2003. What am I missing here, or what is Microsoft missing?

    Hum!!! it seems that you have Hotmail down pat.

    Take a lot at this MSKB article - 287424 - How to Configure Outlook with Hotmail

    Its got some neat info.

    Also, while connected you may want to check Hotmail Popper 3.0.2

    Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks for your response. I should have mentioned in my post that I had already looked at KB287424. There is no information there that gets me to synchronization settings. It seems odd that MS would make these settings avaiable in OE but not in Outlook 2003.

    OK, I found the settings. They're in Tools/Options/Mail Setup/SendReceive. Whew!
