Windows Mail doesn't support HTTP mail, which for a long time was the
only allowed access method for free Hotmail accounts.

Earlier this year Microsoft enabled POP access for free Hotmail/Live/MSN
accounts. Follow the settings given here:!CC9301187A51FE33!49799.entry
Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

Although it accepts the newer addresses, Windows Mail's
account setup wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail and MSN addresses.
To get around that, when you enter your Hotmail/MSN email address initially,
use a fake one, such as (e-mail address removed). After the account setup is complete,
go back and correct your email address.
