As far as I know you can not receive your hotmail messages with kmail or thunderbird, I believe the only one that dows this is outlook.

You need a program called hotwayd (or similar). This acts as a mail server between hotmail and your client. It will pull the hotmail down and pass it to your client, I have used it and can confirm it works.

But it's better to get hotwayd and now also smtpwayd (or something like that) for the outgoing messages. I hate Hotmail with a passion but I can't convince some people to stop sending there so I learned to really appreciate hotwayd. Check it out!
