I'm attempting to access my hotmail account using mac mail, so i can compse and read offline while traveling. I know this question's been posed a million times BUT, i've already downloaded and installed the http plug-in, set up an http account using the suggested setting, and still can't send or recieve any emails.

A lot of posted i'd read were 6 months older or more, so i'm wondering if something's been changed to disallow users to access hotmail, without upgrading to the hotmail plus service. or am i using the right incoming and outgoing mail server settings, i'm typing hotmail.com into the incoming field. i'm going traveling soon and need to figure this out....arrgghh.

Please help?!
