Hotmail using Vista's Window Mail

Tricky one this, for me Smiley
As you may well know MSM don't allow Hot Mail to be collected by the likes of Outlook Express unless...
1. You have a paid account
2. Or you have whats termed a "Valued account" in other words a free Hotmail account that's several years old.
Being a tight wad I'm in the In the No.2 class, but MSM don't seem to make the server details easy to find, at least I can't find them.

The client I'm using is Microsofts Vista Window Mail.
I'm able to collect Hot mail using "pop3hot.com"
But I can't hit on the correct out going mail server.
Any suggestions folks

Thanks for trying robynfali, sorry to say that didn't help.
No doubt I'll come across it sometime.
It'll be in a dark corner of some obscure forum somewhere.

I could kick myself
mail.pop3hot.com works just fine for outgoing mail.
How could I have missed that ?
I thought I tried all the obvious combinations :roll:
