Hotmail Set Up

I have problems setting up my Hotmail on my HTC EVO shift. I also tried doing it manually but it wouldn't work. I understand Hotmail uses POP3. On my cell phone protocol list, i only have POP, APOP and IMAP. Okay, also should my username be the same as my email address  or is it the name associated with the account?

Note: I wouldn't wanna forward my Hotmail to my Gmail because i use my Gmail as my Junk mail.

Thanks!
