If MailWasher is unable to import the account, instead from Settings >> Accounts >> click the 'Add EMail Account' button >> enter in a description and your email address >> Save >> enter in your password >> Save. It should then be all good.

OK, try sending me some logs.

If you go Help >> Send Support Logs >> enter brief note like 'hotmail not working' >> in the Ticket Number field enter chris >> Send Logs >> then reply back here once you have sent them.

OK sure thing.
You currently have it setup to download emails you've already read, which I think you want to change. You can do that under Settings >> Accounts >> Incoming >> click Advanced >> uncheck Download Read Emails. That ought to stop the old emails from loading.

Try that first, see how things go.
