    Hotmail is HTTP (web-based) email. Windows Mail (WM) can not
    handle HTTP mail. If you upgrade to Windows Live Mail (WLM), it
    will accommodate your Hotmail account.

    Yahoo mail can be either webmail or POP. US-based free
    Yahoo accounts have webmail access only. Neither WM nor
    WLM will accommodate Yahoo webmail.

    You can't in Windows Mail.
    Try Windows Live Mail http://get.live.com/betas/maildesktop_betas
