My GMail is automatically moved directly to Local Folder In Box in my OE 6.0,
but with my Hotmail account I have to do it manually. How do I configure
Hotmail to do as GMail?

I'm not sure if it can go into the local folders. Might be because it's a
http-based (Account creation wizard settings)

As well as that it seems that Microsoft have disabled the ability to use OE6
for hotmail emails. When you try to add a hotmail account and download the
folders there's an error message. If i remember correctly you can get this
support by paying for hotmail (As IF, lol. I only got away with it cos it's
been in there since before microsoft did this)

Hi Jayso.
I am paying for my Hotmail account, vs. the GMail account that is free!
Also what does Synchronizing my folders mean?

Unlike POP3 mail, your Hotmail (HTTP) downloads to Hotmail-specific folders
in OE. If you want to save Hotmail messages to Local folders, you must
drag, Move or Copy them there.

synchronizing your folders means you download all of your messages that are
currently on your email account, so you can view them offline
