    Instead of using POP I find it better to forward all my hotmail to a gmail account. That way I get push notifications from the Gmail app.

    You can set your Gmail account to send through the @hotmail.com email address so replying to emails still appears from your hotmail address to the recipient.

    Try changing the server port to 587 instead of 25 in "Outgoing Settings".

    I advise you to take a look at the following guide which gives you more detail:
    My HTC Desire HOW TO: Setup Hotmail Emails On Your HTC Desire

    I used this guide to set up my hotmail account.
