I was trying to help my girlfriend to this the other day. It appears setting up Hotmail is more tricky than other e-mail services. I never did find out how to do it, but during my search I came across lots of different methods and plug-ins. I have no idea which is best or if they work.

If you read carefully, the OP said that he wants to setup his hotmail account with the built in Mail application.

There's not a simple way to add Hotmail as a POP3 or IMAP account. There are some third party solutions, along with paying for a pro version of Hotmail, which gives you POP3 access.
