How can I link a Hotmail account to a Outlook account?

With the new change to Hotmail now being called Outlook, I thought i would update my settings.

I have a number of Hotmail accounts for different purposes. I want to link my main account and my secondary account so emails from the second account appear in the first.

Howver, when I try to set this up using Hotmail help, I get the message “unable to connect to Hotmail, please check you are connected to the Internet.

My internet connection is not the issue here, although there seems to be an issue with hotmail/outlook not liking me to be signed in to each account in a separate window at the same time.

All i want to do is have emails from one account arrive in a folder in another email account by the same company. The instructions on hotmail help are of no help so I am looking to the genius hero types on here to sort me out.
