My new iMac will be arriving Thursday and was curious about hotmail/msn integrating with the macs mail application. I was considering downloading the free trail of Outlook 11' but didn't know if I should give the Mac mail a shot or if it's even possible.

Any info would be helpful.

Thank you!

As shown, it can be set up.

That said, there's no "integration." You simply get basic POP3/SMTP mail.

Oddly, even Outlook 2011 has no native way to talk to Hotmail. Just like Mac Mail, it's simple POP3/SMTP.
