Assuming I'm right was your account one of the original accounts that allowed PC access ? or was it after they blocked that and newer accounts could only access mail via web access ?
What I suspect is whatever account you have, Hotmail have blocked PC access to they're mail, I believe they have been rolling this out over recent months, I couldn't access my mail for a few days (I have an original account with PC access), initially I thought they were just having issues, but looked into it when it didn't resolve, and what I found is they have changed the details to check the mail from the PC, if this is whats happened to you it's an easy fix.
Basically you need to edit the account, or create a new account depending if it will allow changing of the HTTP protocol (I assume you simply selected Hotmail as opposed to pop or anything ?), and what you need to do is as follows, enter everything as normal, BUT, when you get to the account details where you select pop etc, select pop as the medium to use, and in the pop address box enter the following:-
Now in the SMTP box enter the following:-
When you reach the advanced options you need to do the following, for the incoming\pop setting you need to tell it to use port 995 (obviously checking the box), then for the outgoing\SMTP you need to select port 25 (again checking the box), AND, you have to check the box for "My SMTP server requires authentication" then check use same settings as incoming etc, IIRC the pop port is the default anyway, but the SMTP you will have to type in hope the details haven't changed since I last set this up, haven't sent mail from my Hotmail for quite a while now, so hopefully this will get you sorted, if not let me know and I will check again.

Yes the system has recently changed with hotmail.......
You will still be able to access your OE folders through webmail but only the Inbox etc through OE.( using POP3)
Your inbox will now include your hotmail account and any other accounts you have (same for the "Sent" folder and the outbox etc.
More information from here:
If you can download stuff in your Inbox and send new emails satisfactorily then it is all working OK....any other folders you have been using in your hotmail ..just access via webmail.

If you do not have such an entry you may need to add it, you can download it Here, if your still struggling let me know what @hotmail your using (,com etc) and I will get one and test it here to see if I get anything different.it may well be as per above, but as I have it on mine I can't be sure if it's as simple as an add in required, or as I said above they are rolling it out slowly and I haven't been totally hit by it yet, but can't hurt to look if it is as simple as an add in.
