    The much easier way is to use your live account by setting the following in your email client (with me it’s evolution):

    Receiving mail:
    server: pop3.live.com
    security: SSL encryption
    authentication: password

    Sending mail:
    server: smtp.live.com:587 (that is through port 587)
    security: TLS encryption
    authentication: PLAIN (username: )

    While I know this was posted almost a year ago I just wanted to thank Manni Bunti for his post. It made setting up my Evolution for Hotmail possible.
    Thank you Manni!
