Default hotmail and outlook

I'm trying to connect a hotmail e-mail account to outlook and get the error message HTTP error 404 file or directory not found when I try to view the inbox of the hotmail account through outlook.

I'm doing something wrong, I just don't know what.

Please help me.

It tells me hotmail is a HTTP, if I set it up as a pop3, I don't know what to use as the incoming/outgoing ISPs.

When I did this a long time ago (hotmail w/Outlook) I used a POP3 setup. Let me see if I can find the settings on the hotmail site...
