    What are the settings needed to enable me to get my MSN email in Mac Mail? I have a brand new iMac and I haven't been able to find the settings.
    I was getting my MSN email in Outlook using HTTP on my PC.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    You can set up any mail client to access your MSN / Hotmail / Live mail via POP. Full details, including the settings that you need, are in this blog post from the Live team.

    I'd really suggest trying to move from hotmail to another service that offers IMAP access, like Gmail. Gmail even has the option to import all the messages stored in your hotmail account now, I think.

    Anyway, I find having everything setup with IMAP much better because everything stays in sync, whether I'm viewing my inbox on the web, within apple mail, or on the iphone.
