Windows Live Hotmail account in WLM - which POP3 & SMTP to use ?

    I set up a new Windows Live Hotmail email account under WLM.

    Everything seems to work OK, except that I used the incoming mail
    (POP3) and Outgoing mail (SMTP) of my main email account.

    It works OK, but there is one big problem:)

    Problem: when I check for new emails, this new WLH email account
    gets a DUPLICATE of all incoming emails that go to my main account -
    which of course, uses the same POP3 & SMTP.

    I could not find a free MS (or other) replacement for the POP3 & SMTP that
    I am currently using. I "DO NOT" want to add another routine that runs in
    the background!!!! I just need a POP3 & SMTP for this new account.

    How do I set up this new WLH email account to "ONLY" receive
    emails that are specifically addressed to it, and send only emails generated
    from it ?

    I do not need a duplicate of my main email account - talk ~ confusion :)

    Darn, looks like I will have to pay MS $200 x2 for two upgrade copies
    of Vista that allows for the networks option ?

    That little address file is getting expensive :)
