Why would I be able to connect to an Exchange server with the Windows 8 Mail app, but not Outlook 2013?

When configuring Windows 8, all I provided was the server, domain, username, password, and I checked the SSL required box too. I can't seem to figure out how to add the account in the same way to Outlook.

It would seem that Outlook 2013 "Exchange ActiveSync" support is less than what is available in the Windows 8 mail client. :-( – Dan Nov 9 '12 at 21:09
