All evidence I've seen suggests only paid Office 365 accounts support
Exchange Web Services, not free accounts.

Further, even if had an EWS interface it would also need to
support OAuth 2.0 authentication to properly integrate with existing
"Windows Live" accounts in GOA.

The newly-added IMAP/SMTP interfaces *do* support OAuth 2.0, which
allows us to easily tack mail support on to existing "Windows Live"
accounts in GOA.

If at some point does grow EWS + OAuth 2.0 support, E-D-S
could easily switch over.  But as far as I know it does not currently
support either.
