    Hi
    I've had my Mac for a few months now and I still don't know how to set up my Mail account.
    I type in my name, my email address (it's Hotmail by the way if that makes a difference) and the password I want. Then I hit continue and that is when I get confused. It asks if I have a POP account, IMAP or Exchange and I don't know what any of those are. I don't know what my incoming mail server is either or how I could find out what it is or the username or password.
    So, if anyone can help please do because I need to use Mail but I can't set it up.
    Danny.

    Well, I've tried using my @Mac.com account as well but I still don't get the incoming server and all that.
