A quick article on how to update the Microsoft Live Server URL for Hotmail using Windows Live Mail. Well how to deactivate an account and set up a new one in Windows Live Mail. If you used IMAP all along then the new account will have all your mail.

Deactivate the account by deselecting "include this account when receiving mail or synchronising" in the account properties dialog.
Add an account by selecting 'Accounts' tab and then clicking on 'Email' with the plus sign.
Add your account and tick 'Manually configure server settings'.
Configure server settings complete as per the image below (changing the log-on username to your own):
The downloading of all your folders will take a while so don't panic if you find empty folders. Doing a 'send/receive' will bring up the dialog showing its progress.
