JavaMail deosn't care where your mail is. Just address it like firstname.lastname@example.org. Send it through YOUR SMTP server, it that SMTP server will worry about getting it to HotMail.

When you send a mail to an account, for example your Hotmail account, you send it first to an SMTP (or whatever!!) server. This server then forwards it on to the destination server. You need to know the name of the mailserver used by your ISP. 'www.hotmail.com' is the URL of Hotmail's webpage and has nothing to do with mail delivery. 'smtp.mail.example.com' sounds like a made up server used for demonstration purposes. Speak to your ISP they should be able to tell you the server to use.
