This will require setting up another account
1)Start Outlook,on the Tools menu,click Accounts
2)In the Internet Accounts dialog box,click Add and then click Mail,follow the Internet Connection Wizard.
Hotmail uses a Web based Hypertext Transfer Protocol mail service Outlook 98 cannot be setup to send or receive email from your Hotmail account.
A work around to access a Hotmail account
Create a Hotmail Folder
On the view menu,click Folder List to turn on the folder list
Right-click Outlook Today,and then click New Folder.Name the folder Hotmail and then click OK.
Folder List should now include a Hotmail items folder.
In the Folder's List,right-click the Hotmail folder,and then clikc Properties
On the Home Page tab,type http://www.hotmail.com in the Address box
Click to select Showhome page by default for thsi folder,and then click OK.

Sorry sir, but that was not the answr/solution I was looking for, basically I am in sales and most of time I am travelling, since I used MS Outlook a lot, therefore, I was looking for a solution to use the same and download/save all my messages.

Thanks again for your help and time.
