In the log you posted:

Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list. You can also refer your provider to http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors. (in reply to MAIL FROM command))

The previous owner of your IP address sent junk mail from it, and Hotmail has banned it.

Try putting your IP address in here:

http://www.anti-abuse.org/multi-rbl-check/

or

http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

They will tell you which blacklist services have your address mentioned and maybe why. Each blacklist service has a different way of asking to be removed - you will have to look through their websites to work out how. Once you have your address removed from blacklists, Hotmail will very likely start accepting email from you.
