How to set MS outlook for my Hotmail account

Hi i was just wondering how to setup a hotmail account on the MS outlook or Oulook express .. as i did try through pop3 , smtp settings and it works but my personal folders within hotmail account is not downloaded ... How do i get those personal folders as well?

Also how do i know that my account is a normal hotmail account or a windows live hotmail account?

Thanks and regards

i tried micosoft outlook connector and i am able to get all my Inbox along with my personal folders. By usinig this connector are my emails are still be saved on the web or after using this connector all the emails are going to be download on the system and get delete from the web ? ( As there is an option if we are doing normal account settings for Pop3 and smtp that leave a copy on the server).

Thanks and regards

When you use outlook connector hotmail and outlook are like a mirror. They should stay on the web. Now, just becareful with moving the folder that are downloaded to your outlook because if you move them this could erase the folders from hotmail.
