Odd issue with Camino and Outlook webmail
Hotmail, Outlook… these webmail services basically look the same to me, so I don't understand why Camino doesn't work with Outlook webmail whereas it does with hotmail webmail service. Both do work with Firefox 17.

I have tried tweaking Camino's user-agent to no avail.

I use Outlook Web-based for email and calendar and the latest version of Camino (2.1) seems to work fine with it. Maybe there is something on your server side that is non-standard?

Thank you for your reply steve626. Did you modify Camino's user agent.?

- If I keep Camino as user agent, I get a notification to upgrade my browser to Firefox or IE and can only get to the mobile version of Outlook web-based mail.
- If I change the user agent (with the help of User Agent prefpane) the mails are listed but by clicking on any of them, the screen goes blank and nothing is shown.

Modifying the user agent is useful for tricking a web app into working with a browser it deems as unsupported, but in your case, if you are not getting warnings this won't be accomplishing much, and it may not be accomplishing much regardless if Camino is just being treated as a Mozilla-based browser.

Does the version of Outlook Web Access you have access to work in Firefox?

Thanks for your reply Besson. I was getting warnings to update to a 'more modern browser' (FF and IE being suggested.) Also, Outlook Web Access is working in Firefox (Mac)

I fixed it in the most unexpected way, switching the Outlook Interface from spanish to english. I don't know why this would have anything to do with it but it did the trick.

I thank both of you.

Issue is back. I guess I need to stick to Firefox to check out those mail accounts… Death. By Exile.
