Did you configure the outbound server (smtp) per your ISP's recommendation?  I believe authentication is required.

Is WindowsUpdate current for IE and Outlook Express as well as for your Operating System and version?  If not, recommend that.

When you try to send a Hotmail message from Outlook Express, the following error message may appear:

The server does not support the required HTTP methods.
Account: Hotmail
Server: http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp
Protocol: HTTPMail
Server Response: Method Not Allowed
Port: 0
Secure(SSL): No
Error Number: 0x800CCC35
Hotmail functions normally through the Hotmail Web site.
CAUSE
This behavior can occur if you have multiple Hotmail e-mail accounts that are assigned to a single e-mail identity in Outlook Express.
WORKAROUND
To work around this behavior, create one or more new e-mail identities and verify that only one Hotmail account exists for each e-mail identity.

For additional information about how to create a new identity, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

SYMPTOMS
In Entourage for Mac or Outlook Express for Macintosh, when you attempt to send or retrieve mail from a Microsoft MSN Hotmail account or attempt to configure a new Hotmail account after October 25, 2001, the following behavior may occur:
All of the Hotmail folders disappear.
After you configure a Hotmail account, no folders are displayed.
The following error message is displayed:

The Hotmail folder list could not be received.
HTTP error.
The server cannot fulfill the request. Error: 1500
The following error message is displayed:

The Hotmail folder list could not be received or Could not retrieve mail from the account <name of Hotmail account>. Error: 17599
Entourage quits with the following error message:

The application Microsoft Entourage has unexpectedly quit.
The system and other applications have not been affected.
Entourage quits when running AppleScripts, or schedules to access and update Hotmail accounts.

This behavior can occur because the Hotmail servers were updated on October 25, 2001 to provide greater security. These security updates disabled client programs' ability to gain access to or send mail from Hotmail.
