Outlook.com offers email/contacts/calendar similar to Google. With my iPhone and iPad (iOS 6.1.3) I can connect to outlook.com by setting up an Exchange account. It uses the Exchange ActiveSync protocol. On OS X Mountain Lion I can choose an Exchange server in the Mail, Contacts & Calendar settings tab, but it does not connect when I put in my outlook.com login.

Is there a way to connect to outlook.com via Exchange ActiveSync to access email, contacts and calendar?

Unlike iOS, the Mail app in OS X does not currently support Exchange ActiveSync.

Exchange ActiveSync is different from the standard Exchange format. A mail client that supports Exchange may not support EAS.
