  2. "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/cns!CC9301187A51FE33!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.
