    You need a pay-yearly Hotmail account to be able to use it with Apple's Mail.

    Do you have the pay service (I think it's called Hotmail Plus or something)?

    you got just forward incoming hotmail messages to your gmail account. i imagine you can do this via hotmails user prefs.

    Hotmail now has pop support.

    Just go to mail and create a new account. Type in your hotmail details and for incoming server type in: pop3.live.com.

    It should work with that.

    I have hotmail set up on both my mac and my iPhone :)

    I guess it's also available for Spain as I switched my account from US to Spain (moved here) in the settings.
