Hi Mike,

It sounds like your using an IMAP connection in Microsoft Outlook to read your Hotmail.

If you prefer that email is removed from the Hotmail servers you may want to switch your settings to POP3

Here are the Hotmail pop3 server names - What are the pop3 settings for an email account

If you want a mix of the above, and have some but not all saved on the Hotmail servers, you'll want to use the "leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the POP3 settings.
