How can I sync my Android tablet with my outlook.com email?

Although I followed several instructions I did not manage to sync my new Android tablet with my outlook.com account.
I created my windows live account several months ago – even before outlook.com was born.

When I login to my windows live account (or my outlook.com account) I use the email adress I used during creating my account (looks like fritz@cat.eu).

First question: I don’t have an address ending with @outlook.com. Many instructions use an outlook.com-account. Can I use ‘my’ email address (fritz@cat.eu) to create the sync connection?

Second question: what is the server name? outlook.com? hotmail.com? m-hotmail@com? snt.m-hotmail@com? I’m confused.

When using my email adress and my passwort and outlook.com as server I get an error message that username or password is wrong. But both are not wrong! I can use them to login to outlook.com via browser without problems.

Can anybody help me setting up a sync connection to sync my outlook.com mail and contacts to my new android tablet.
