    Did you setup the account as a pop account?
    You have to manually enter the pop settings.

    Look at the Account in WLM at Tools (ALT+T), Accounts, Mail, Properties,
    Server. Is it set up as POP3 or HTTP?

    POP3 only downloads the Inbox. With HTTP WLM mirrors the Hotmail web
    folders.

    If the account was imported from Outlook Express or Vista Windows Mail
    it likely imported as POP3. If set up manually in WLM it should have
    defaulted to HTTP.

    If you want to switch from POP3 to HTTP do the following
    - Create a Hotmail folder under Storage folders
    - Copy the Hotmail messages from the Inbox under the Hotmail account to
    the one in Storage Folders.
    - At Tools, Accounts Remove the Hotmail account. This will delete all
    the messages in WLM for the Hotmail account (that's way making the copy
    to Storage Folders.
    - At Tools, Accounts you can not Add the Hotmail account which should
    not be HTTP.
    - Synch to get the folders synched.
    - If the Inbox folder is missing messages, you can copy them back from
    the Storage folder copy made above.

    Typo correction?

    If my fingers only did what I was thinking ... Or then again maybe they
    were. NOW somehow came out as NOT.

    I don't know if you use auto-correct. If you do, then you may not have
    typed not.

    Ron - I don't use Autocorrect, but if I did, I would sincerely hope that it wouldn't substitute 'not' every time I typed 'now' (or vice versa)

    No, it doesn't do that. One of the more useful auto-corrections for me is
    changing 'teh' to 'the'.
