In the past I always read and wrote my hotmail.com emails through browser on the remote hotmail server.

Now I decided to switch to a local client like Outlook (or other email client).

How do I get now all my existing emails from the remote Hotmail/live server into my local email client?

Fetching all emails from "Inbox" in not a problem but what about all my emails in the "Sent" folder or all the mails which I moved to new, additional folders on the Hotmail server?

Is there a way to retrieve them (through POP3) as well (maybe through an additional utility tool)?

Re: How to fetch ALL (not only Inbox) emails from Hotmail/live server (by POP3

POP3: no, it is limited to Inbox-only. You can use the Outlook Connector with Outlook 2003,2007, or 2010 to pull down all messages (and calendar, contacts). (Outlook 2013 has the ability to do this built in. ) Live mail or whatever Microsoft calls it now can pull everything down too, if you choose the correct account type.

See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/config/configuring-outlook-com-in-outlook/ for more information.

The outlook connector is here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24677
