Can I suggest that gmail is a far better alternative - It does pop3 also.

Huge amount of space with gmail so you don't have to worry about mail bouncing in a full email account and the spam filters are not so aggressive, many hotmail users do not actually get mail that they DO want. Gmail puts all spam filtered mail in a spam folder that you can check to see if there is stuff you want. It keeps it for 30 days I think.

If you need to find someone to get the invite to have a gmail account, let me know and I will send you an invite.

You might also want to consider getting your own domain name with the ability to set up as many email accounts as you want for use with Mail in OSX.

I actually do already have a gmail account. But use Hotmail..as my primary email account as it carries all my messenger address
