Sending or receive messages from other clients with a Hotmail account

I am trying to configure my IMB 'ThinkPad' laptop to send mail via the Internet while dialing straight into my ISP. I am using Notes R5.

I have set up, in my personal address book, the Internet accounts for POP and SMTP. I have also setup a configuration document connecting to my ISP with the port set as TCP/IP and 'Microsoft Dial-Up Networking together with that servers IP address. Lastly, I've amended the 'Internet' location document to reflect the particulars of my ISP.

When I compose a memo off line and click on the 'send' button, it places the message in the SMTP Outgoing Mail Box - no problem there. When I then dial up my ISP the message is transferred OK but straight into my 'Hotmail' account with the messages; unauthorized relay traffic prohibited, and Service unavailable.

I also cannot retrieve any of my mail in the 'Hotmail' account into my 'names.nsf mailbox on the laptop.

Have you ant idea as to where I am going wrong or is it a problem at my ISP's end?

Hotmail is a service only available online via HTTP or through Outlook Express. You cannot send or receive messages from other clients with your Hotmail account. This cannot be avoided.
