    Im just wondering but how would i set up a hotmail account in the mail app. It only has categories of Aol, Gmail andYahoo i think. What information do I enter under Incoming Mail Server: Host Name, Username, Password and for Outgoing Mail Server: Host name, Username, Password. Also at the top there are three tabs which say IMAP, POP and Exchange...do i need to worry about these?
    Thankyou

    HAHAHA Hotmail!
    Anyway you probably aren't paying for hotmail Plus Ultimate Extreme Edition Service Pack 27, so you don't get POP or IMAP. ie: You can't. Get gmail.

    You might not be able to do this for free depending on you hotmail account. However you need to install the HTTPMail plugin

    Lol, I was just about to make a post on this. When I went into Mail for the first time, I was like "where is hotmail?". Then I remembered, this is apple. Hotmail is pretty much a microsoft affair, so that's why :)
