    Hi guys,

    Have any of you figured out a way to add a (Hotmail or Live) email account as an Exchange account in the Mac mail app ?

    It's been available on the iPhone for a while, it must be doable on the mac. I've been trying with no luck at all.

    Here's the link with the instructions of how to do it on several devices, maybe someone will figure out a way to get to work on the Mail app.

    Thanks in advance..

    You can't, MS turned on Exchange ActiveSync (which is only for mobile devices like the iPhone). It's not quite the same thing as the Exchange used by desktop clients like Mail :(
