You'll find the details on the hotmail site.

When your setting up the account, instead of Pop3 from the drop-down list, select HTTP and it should fill in the rest of the details for you.

I'm using Outlook express 6 by the way!

Ok, having said that I can't find them, I'll keep looking and post if I do.

Try setting both to pop3.msn.com, or pop3.hotmail.com. then send yourself a message and see if it sends/recieves ok.

What are my incoming and outgoing mail settings?
Mail settings direct your e-mail to its correct destination. Incorrect mail settings can prevent you from sending and receiving e-mail.
Your Incoming mail (POP3) setting is pop3.email.msn.com.

Your Outgoing mail (SMTP) setting is smtp.email.msn.com.
