    You should be able to, as Hotmail has recently started POP3 access, which is what clients such as the Mail app use to access your emails. Just make sure POP3 is enabled in your Hotmail account before you try and set up Mail, though.

    I don't know the answer, but you would probably get it faster by just searching GOOGLE.

    However, I'd assume it would be enabled automatically.
