Hot mail or Yahoo cannot be your client. You can download a client, such as Windows Live Mail and set it up to receive Hot Mail, if Hotmail allows POP3 or IMAP.

The client is not an email provider, it is a simple way to download the email to your hard drive, so it can be read off line.

If you want additional help, just post
