Connect to Office 365, Hotmail, MS Exchange with Hiri eMail Client

Hiri email client is an attractive mail app that integrates seamlessly not only with Microsoft Exchange servers, but also connects to Office 365, as well as Outlook.com, Live, and Hotmail accounts. We can argue that the likes of Mozilla Thurderbird (with ExQuilla Plugin), Evolution are also great alternatives but Hiri does have some extra wow factor, one of which is the dashboard.
