Well, you can use it with any email. Just not hotmail. Not sure about msn. I mean we use it with our IPs designated address.

heres instructions.

all you have to do, is when your adding an account for hotmail, just type your email for hotmail, and outlook (being a microsoft product, as is hotmail) will recognize it right away and find the right server and stuff and it will connect to your account.
