Are you concerned about setting up your Hotmail account in Windows Mail?
If so, follow the settings given here:
Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.
Although it accepts the newer Live.com addresses, the Windows Mail
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 me@xxxxxxxxxxxxx After the account setup is complete,
go back and correct your email address.
