Has the Mail app been updated to support Outlook.com exchange?

The current backdoor method of using xxx-m.hotmail.com doesn't work for me :mad:

Can anyone test their hotmail, live, or outlook.com email with the Mail app :confused:

The free outlook.com only supports POP, IMAP, and ActiveSync (which is m.hotmail.com).

The mid to high tier Office 365 plans provide Exchange access.

The company that makes the mobile app Touchdown has a third party mail app that supports ActiveSync for OS X. But for Mac Mail, there is no ActiveSync option.

Office 365 works fine on OS X. You don't need a 3rd party app. It connects using EWS instead of ActiveSync.

OS X supports only EWS. iOS supports only ActiveSync. Outlook.com supports only ActiveSync. Office 365 supports both ActiveSync and EWS.
