    Same problem...

    Just got OS X Lion on new MB Air and I too am using the same settings that I have already used with my iPhone 4 and iPad but to no avail.

    Would really appreciate some feedback.

    ohhhhhhhhh this is why:

    "Re: Hotmail Exchange Activesync
    03-Sep-2010 15:04 (in response to mostlydave)
    Microsoft has only enabled Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) on their Hotmail servers. This supports only mobile devices.

    To enable you to connect Apple Mail or Microsoft Entourage, Microsoft will need to enable Exchange Web Services on their Hotmail servers. They have not done this and they have made no announcement that they will do this."

    Guess we can use pop settings.
