If it's not configured, it will ask you on startup. Off memory, I think it's in Tools --> Accounts.
Then just follow the prompts and work out what you POP or IMAP settings are. Thurana mentioned it for Gmail, below are the settings for Hotmail.
Incoming POP server pop3.live.com
Incoming POP mail port 995
POP SSL required Yes
User name Your Windows Live ID (for example: email@example.com)
password The password you use to sign in to Hotmail
Outgoing SMTP server smtp.live.com
Outgoing SMTP mail port 25 or 587
Authentication required Yes (your Windows Live ID and password)
TLS/SSL required Yes (select TLS if available, if not select SSL)
