Windows 7: How do I disassociate two Hotmail accounts and use one with outlook

How do I disassociate two Hotmail accounts and use one with outlook

I have two hotmail accounts. One personal and one for my sideline business. I want the two accounts to be totally separate and unrelated so I can access the business Hotmail account using Outlook 2007 to send and receive business email. I want to continue using the personal account like normal using my firefox web browser.

Hotmail is driving me nuts trying to accomplish this. Apparently if I'm not logged into the business account my emails will not send or receive in Outlook. I can not find a way to log onto both my personal and business accounts at the same time to accomplish what I'm trying to do. I tried linking the two accounts but that didn't work. I still had to be logged into one or the other. There has to be a way to do this.

Please HELP!!!

Thank you,

Jake Beckham

I don't understand what you are saying, how and where you are logging into what account ...

Do you have Microsoft Office Outlook Hotmail Connector installed ?
You need this to use Hotmail accounts with Outlook.
Microsoft Office Outlook Hotmail Connector overview - Outlook -

With that installed, did you setup your business Hotmail account in Outlook?
The account must be setup in Outlook to be able to send/receive from Outlook.
