Hotmail won't work under Windows Mail. You may prefer Windows Live
Mail, which can connect to Hotmail in addition to taking over any accounts
Windows Mail can handle.
Although Windows Live Mail may encourage you to have a Windows Live
account, it does not require one.
Note that the Windows Live programs are a whole family of programs,
not just one program.
For more information on Windows Live Mail, you're likely to get answers
faster in the newsgroup meant for it:
Not everyone agrees on whether Windows Live Mail is better or worse
than Windows Mail, but at least Microsoft is putting more effort into
writing updates for Windows Live Mail.
