    Just got my pre and so far I love it, BUT, I am unable to figure out how to see/move messages to my other folders when using the email client for hotmail.

    ie, I can see the inbox, deleted, drafts, sent folders just fine, but I can't see/use any of the other folders I created in hotmail to store messages that I don't want clogging the inbox anymore.

    Is this a "feature" or am I just missing something.

    Hotmail uses POP3, which doesn't support folders. The sent/drafts/trash folders are local only and won't sync with the server, although it'll delete messages off the server when you delete them on the Pre if you have that option enabled in the preferences (on by default).

    greenoyster is right... although...

    If you came from windows mobile or use outlook, you know that hotmail acts like IMAP. Microsoft would need to create a connector for WebOS. I'm not sure if they created one for the iPhone. If they have, then it might show an indication that they will create one for the Pre.

    I would love to have my hotmail folders show up... especially since i have rules that automatically sort my incoming emails. It's a little crazy that we can't see folders, and actually negatively impacts my WebOS experience.

    Here's a thought patch developers:

    Figure out how Microsoft Outlook Connector works using DeltaSync. Google has figured it (or creative use of IMAP4) for importing hotmail into gmail, why can't this be duplicated?

    Come on Palm, Homebrew, Anyone!?
    I'd even pay a few bucks for this!
