I can't tell from your message whether you receive much spam or just a
small amount nor is it clear whether your main concern is reducing spam or
using Outlook.  If you already have Outlook on your machine, you can use
it with Hot Mail.  but I can't tell you how this is done.  Hot Mail offers
POP access now.  but someone else will have to discuss the matter further.
