new to macs and wondering about linking hotmail to mail?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
First mac computer and I was wondering if there was a way to set up or link my hotmail account to the apple mail program so when I open mail it picks up my hotmail? If yes feel free to explain how, thanks.

    That only seems to work on really old hotmail accounts or else you need to upgrade to Hotmail Plus.

    I wanna know the answer to that too. I just started using Mail today but won't bother with this plugin if it'll slow me down.

    No Problems here, using Mail with Gmail and as quick flowing as the ether through which the mail flies through

    Though Gmail is the way forward much better then rubbish hotmail.

    I'm using mail with gmail too and it's great. But I want to add my hotmail account if works well enough. The hotmail account is where people that aren't my first priority email me, it keeps my gmail account streamlined. Plus I use it for msn so everyone on msn emails there because they're lazy.

    I installed this but still don't know how to link the address to my mac mailbox. Would you mind walking me through it? Thanks.
