I am, with my attempt to become all organised like a big organised thing, trying to get hotmail rooted through my mail programe on my computer. I know that this can be done, as it is a PoP thingie, but can't get the blasted thing to tell me the name of the server. Any hope of a hand?

Do you use a free Hotmail account? If so, it's not possible:

Access to POP e-mail accounts from HotmailSympatico Mail is a subscription-only service, and is not available to free HotmailSympatico Mail accounts.
If you are using a subscription service:
After logging into the web-hotmail thingy, there should be a 'help' button on the right side of the window where you'll find all sort of info about "Common POP problems".

Poo. Well, that's being super-organised out the window in any case. Ta.

And I need no suggestions for other mail sources which are better, as I allready have better onhes as well, it's just an added bother having to search through a vast multitude of mail sources.

Sign up for a free trail (you get to keep the email address) enter the info in the system prefs and your away, v. easy to set up mail to do it. You know how to get in touch with me if you have problems ;-)

As I said, I need no further e-mail adresses, as the ones supplies by the Uni and BT have plenty space and suchlike, but I've forgotten the number of things I've given the Hotmail adress to.

Meh, just change your info on sites with your hotmail account, or look at the hotmail one online.
