How do I configure Android to Access outlook.com using Exchange activesync?

I am trying to use the built-in email client of Android (ICS) to access my newly created outlook.com email. From posts around the web it seems like outlook.com uses the exchange activesync protocol. Is this right? If so, what are the settings to access outlook.com. 
I tried the following

domain\username - myusername
password - mypassword
server - outlook.com (I also tried m.outlook.com)

but it says the username/password is not valid...


Anyone know the right settings?

I've been able to setup activesync on my Android and Ipad.  The settings should be your Email address = Email address, server address for me was snt-m.hotmail.com (Try just hotmail.com first though), username is your email address and make sure "This server requires an encrypted SSL connection" is checked.

Now only if I could get Outlook to work with Outlook.com
