mail.host must be SMTP mail server which use for relay mail to recepient.
you can not use hotmail.com as SMTP since it is not SMTP.
generally, SMTP is a server that is in your private network.
please ask your network administrator for ip address or host name for SMTP.
or if you use modem to dial to ISP, you should contact your ISP for SMTP address.

Have you ever use outlook to send mail? If you use, you can look it in mail configuration in the E-mail Account menu.

Hope this help.
