To do that you have to get hotmail plus, and its not free

Yeah, just get Hotmail Plus, it'll enable POP3 for you in order to use with Outlook!
Or you can setup a Gmail account to get free access to your mail using Outlook.
Regard!

if you have office XP or 2003, it lets you choose the hotmail server automatically.

Check to see if you have POP3 options anywhere in your Hotmail preferences or options. You may need to enable it.

This will show you the POP3 server address that you can manually add into your outlook. You will need to setup another profile in your outlook for this POP3 access.

Edit : It will most likely look a litttle like:

POP3 – mail.hotmail.com
SMTP – mail.hotmail.com

4. In the E-mail Accounts dialog box, enter the required information by using the following guidelines:a. User Information• Your Name: This should be your full name.
• E-mail Address: This is your Hotmail address. Your e-mail address usually takes the form of a combination of your first and last name, separated by the at sign (@) and followed by Hotmail.com. For example, John Doe uses an e-mail address of JohnD@Hotmail.com.


b. Log on Information• User Name: This will usually be the part of your e-mail address to the left of the at sign (@).
• Password: You select your password.
• You can click to select the check box to have Outlook remember your e-mail account password.
