Incoming/Outgoing Servers

When adding a new account in Thunderbird portable, it askes for an incoming account and an outgoing, I have no idea what it wants from me. My mail service is hotmail. I've checked the forums and Thunderbird Portable help but cannot find anything similar except for the webmail add-on which I'm not sure I need at all. Though I did download and tried to install it, but windows dows notrecognize the file type. So if someone could help me by telling me what server I need to put under income and outcome servers. Thanks in advance.

Steps:
  1. Download the Webmail and Hotmail extensions from http://webmail.mozdev.org/ and save to your computer (doesn't matter where)
  2. Open up Thunderbird Portable and click Tools » Extensions » Install
  3. Select the Webmail XPI file and click open
  4. Repeat 2-3 for the Hotmail XPI.
  5. Close TBP and start it up again.
  6. Click File » New... » Acoount
  7. Choose Web Mail
  8. Fill in the first page
  9. The user on the next page must be your full email address
  10. Done!

I've also tried to set up

I've also tried to set up with my yahoo email and don't seem to be able to do it. Where is the WEBMAIL default in the setup. I downloaded the webmail extension and google one.

And yet before i tried it without the webmail extension and yet you say it works without. So i don't know.

Be grateful if you could advise. I have the version with PGP perhaps that is where the problem lies?

thanks
