Have you made Hotmail the default in the Start Menu?

If not, right-click Start > Properties > Start Menu Tab > Customize and make the email link point to Live Hotmail.

Or got to Start>Set Program Access and Defaults>non-Microsoft items

Or in Set Program Access and Defaults from the Start menu (XP Classic Start menu).
