Windows 8 RTM Mail App Will not accept Outlook.com account.

Im having trouble adding my Outlook.com email to the Mail program within Windows 8. I called the support line and they refused to help me. 

I connected a POP account to my Windows Live account on Outlook.com using this guide.


when i try to add the email address to Windows 8 Mail it wants me to give it server information. I am trying to sign in with my outlook.com username and password each time. but it just keeps asking for server info.

Please help, thanks.

i just tried your suggestion and it says the account was added, however there is no inbox for the account. I only can see my gmail, there is nothing for the hotmail account. I went back into account settings, and even in there it only showed me 1 account, my gmail account. i clicked on add account and tried hotmail again. tried to login again, and now its telling me the account is already added. i rebooted and tried again. still no luck. the account is not listed but it is telling me i have already added it.
