    The Mail app supports any email service that has POP3/IMAP mail servers.

    But, it will also support hotmail via a 3rd party plugin called HTTPMail (I think) - www.versiontracker.com

    Mail.app supports standard email protocols like POP3 and IMAP and the proprietary Microsoft Exchange and Apple's own .mac. IIRC, Hotmail requires special plug-in.

    Google to the rescue! I found this tutorial on the subject, but it's specific to ECU. Surely you could substitute the relevant settings for your environment?

    I used to have an exchange server at work and when I set up Mail for that account it created a bunch of folders. I imagine whatever is on the server gets copied over. This was automatic, btw--no configuration.
