There are no settings to receive hotmail in OS X Mail without extra doodads. You have to use http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18189

I find it easiest to use Entourage, which interacts with hotmail very well.

However, weed's solution also works for mail. You will need the hotmail http address, which can be found in Exchange 2003 for windows when specifying a new hotmail account.
