Hello! :)

First of all; hello everyone. Just got here on the forums. :)

Anyway, my problem is when I shall set up configurations on the e-mail settings on the Avast Internet security... I have no idea what the settings is supposed to be! I use hotmail on the internet, not Outlook.

I am grateful for every answer and the help I get!

No need to configure the Mail-Shield, if you only use Hotmail on the net.

Well, it should be able to. Microsoft can't do it for you on the internet-based mail.
