Default BIS & Hotmail

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Hotmail account that I don't use very often but I have set up BIS to poll the account. I've also added the Hotmail account to Outlook (stand alone).

It seems that when the BIS finds new mail in the account it gets marked as read on Hotmail and therefor will not be seen as new mail when I go into Outlook. The only way to read the mail after the BIS has polled the account is to go into the Hotmail website.

I know that you can config a Hotmail account to notify a user when new mail arrives but it only tells the user new mail has arrived causing the user to have to go to the website or mail client to see what is there. Anybody konw any other work around?
