Fix Mbox Mail for Mac on Lion, works Apple Mail 5

After the new Mac OSX Lion released, there has been a number of people finding out the Mbox Mail for Mac doesn’t work at all. **But the fact is, it actually works. **The reason is that the whole new updated Apple Mail 5 has added some security protocols which don’t support the Mbox Mail for Mac. I have been doing some programs hoping to fix this problem. However it takes some time. Therefore herein I would like to introduce an alternative way with Thurderbird to make the whole thing works again.

Step 1:
If you don’t have Mbox Mail for Mac, download and install Mbox Mail for Mac 1.0.2 below and ensure it is not expired and started:

Step 2:
Download and install the beta version of Thurderbird here:

Step 3:
Go to “Tools”->”Account Settings”, then add new mail account:

Step 4:
Enter name and email address, but leave password empty. Then continue.

Step 5:
Right after continue, you will see “manual config”. Click it.

Step 6:
Input password and fill the boxes as shown in the screenshot. Then click “re-test” and then “create account”.

Step 7:
You might see a warning. Tick the understand box and then create account.

After all you should be able to check your hotmail. Enjoy and please “like” or “+1” this passage if you feel it helpful. =]
