Can't receive mail from Hotmail

On Monday I downloaded eM client version 6.0 : 24928:0 . Everything synced fine.  However, since loading I am only receiving mail from my G. Mail account. Nothing is coming in from my Hotmail, although I know I have e-mail in the inbox. When I open eMclient it shows that the program is syncing with calendars folders inbox etc but mail is not coming in.  Do I have some setting incorrectly applied.  I am a senior lady and not particularly good with technology.
