You can't just use a host/dns name, it that hotmail doesn't support it. Basically, you have to write a program that sends your username and password, then parses out any information from the html page. I know it can be done, because somebody wrote it in Visual Basic. Here's a link to the VB code. I know it's not the same as Java, but it will give you that basic idea.

Last time I checked, Hotmail didn't permit this.
