i think that hotmail only works in external appls e.g. mail if you have the premium version. not sure what its called but i think you have to pay for it.

Is your Hotmail a Pay account? If it worked in Thunderbird it will work in Mail. I will do some searching and find out for you. Does it use POP and SMTP servers? If so mail will work. I will get back to you if I find out how to set up mail with it.

EDIT: Ok, there is a way IF you have HotMail PLUS. Here is a URL that tells exactly how to do it. You have to download and install a Plugin in Mail and set it up. This site tells you how.

Hope this helps you get it running. If not let me know.

i don't have hotmail plus, there is a way to do it with freePoPs but i'm not very good with computers so find it too hard to follow, i would appreciate it if someone give me a simplified way to do it.

i've tried it before, and have checked microsoft support, and there is no way to put the free accounts on mail.

if it works in thunderbird then just download that and use that for your hotmail and use mail for your other accounts.
