This works on the "new" Windows Live interface. (Note you have to change an incoming port number from the default):

Add your e-mail account to Microsoft Outlook Express

You can use a POP3 (POP3, or Post Office Protocol 3, is a protocol that's used to retrieve e-mail from a mail server.) server to add your Windows Live Hotmail account to Microsoft Outlook Express and access messages there.

Use a POP3 server to add your Windows Live Hotmail account to Outlook Express

In Outlook Express, click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
Click Add, and then click Mail.

Type your name, and then click Next.

Type your full Windows Live Hotmail e-mail address, and then click Next.

Enter the following information, and then click Next:
In the My incoming mail server is a box, click POP3.
In the Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) server box, type
In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server box, type

Type the account name and the password for your Windows Live Hotmail account. Clear the Remember password check box unless you're the only person with access to the computer. Make sure that the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box isn't selected.

Click Next, and then click Finish.

In the Internet Accounts window, click the Mail tab, click the Windows Live Hotmail account that you added, and then click Properties.

Click the Advanced tab, and under Server Port Numbers, enter the following information, and then click OK:
In the Incoming mail (POP3) box, type 995.
In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box, type 25.

Under both Outgoing mail (SMTP) and Incoming mail (POP3), select the This server requires a secure connection (SSL) check box.

Click Apply, click Close.

This worked great!!! Fixed my problem that stopped me from using Outlook for the past two months.

Is there a reason why I can't change a hotmail calendar through Outlook?
