"hotmail" is not a valid mail server name.
To set up your Hotmail account in Windows Mail, use the settings given here:
http://mailcall.spaces.live.com/Blog...33!49799.entry
Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

To give you a bit of history, Windows Mail doesn't support HTTP mail,
which for a long time was the only allowed access method for free
Hotmail accounts. Also, Windows Mail is not aware that Microsoft
enabled POP access for free Hotmail/Live/MSN accounts in Feb. 2010.
The Windows Mail account setup wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail and
MSN addresses.To get around that limitation, when you enter your Hotmail/MSN
email address initially, use a fake one, such as . After the
account setup is complete, go back and correct your email address.
