Help with setting up Outlook mail account please

I am at my brothers trying to get outlook to manage his mail and we are having a few problems.

We want to use outlook 2000 to connect to his msn account.

We have been to tools/accounts/add/mail and followed the prompts.

we chose pop3 and smtp options and continued by then putting in the msn account details and password (the account details did not have msn.com at the end though)and then chose connect through his phone line.

His internet connection is an ipex broadband connection through a speedtouch modem.

It then asks us for a telephone number we have not got?

We have already chosen the connect through LAN option and seen it through to the finish but then outlook will not connect to the server.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Thank you

We have followed the first link and can now view the hotmail account and inbox through the outlook window pane.

The second step has set up an internet email account and we typed the instructions in section 6 exactly as they were printed (should we have put our personal details in this section).

This enabled us to send and receive but appeared to do nothing.

How then do we now download and move messages into outlook?
