    Your Outlook has it by default ... just click new account and then type in your hotmail address with {@hotmail.com} and then next .... Booomm, it will be in the next screen .....

    Or if you are using MS outlook 2003 just type in your address and then chose Hotmail from the drop-down list ... that's it.

    Or just copy/paste the Und3ertak3r's address ....

    You get information about the hotmail-com-mail servers using nslookup.
    > nslookup
    >set type=MX
    will give you mx1.hotmail.com ... mx4.hotmail.com, which are talking
    smtp. Und3ertak3r is right, as far as I know, that there is no free POP3
    service[1] - and you can't directly use the above servers as your outgoing
    smtp server, except you want to send to hotmail.com-email accounts only.
    However, there seem to exist proxy/protocol translator solutions (older?)
    IzySoft[2] and Apocgraphy[3]. I haven't checked them, but you might give
    them a try.

    A interesting detail:
    tells me:
    (...) hotmail.com Sending unsolicited commercial or bulk e-mail to Microsoft's computer
    network is prohibited (...) Violations will result in use of equipment located in California
    and other states.
