"webDAV" you say?
That's interesting because old Hotmail accounts are able to communicate
using something that's called "WebDav". If it's the same one, then
WebMail/Hotmail TB extension might already work with Outlook Web Access.
If it doesn't already work, I'm sure the developer/maintainer of that
extension can add this feature :)
P.S. after a quick lookup, it looks like (s)he is already working on it.
