Same ID in many sites does not a problem. Hotmail, Gmail & Yahoo have their own servers and there are no conflicts between them. I have also 3 same ids on gmail, yahoo and hotmail but i could have this problem. Outlook settings are as under:

Start Microsoft Outlook.
In Tools menu, you should click on Account Settings.
In E-mail tab, click on New.
In the Add New E-mail Account, click on Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP and click on Next.
To configure new e-mail account automatically, under Auto Account Setup in Add New E-mail Account:
In Your Name box type your name.
In E-mail Address box type your complete e-mail address.
In Password box type your account password.
In Retype Password box just retype your password then click on Next.
Click on Finish then click on Close to complete account setup.
To configure e-mail account manually, in the Add New E-mail Account:
Click to select the Manually configure server settings or additional server types then click on Next.
Click on Internet E-mail then click on Next.
Under User Information:
In Your Name box type your name.
In E-mail Address box type your e-mail address
In Server Information, click type of your e-mail account in the Account Type.
If you click on POP3 or IMAP in Account Type box then:
In Incoming mail server box type the name of server in lowercase letters.
In Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box type name of outgoing e-mail server. Type server name in lowercase letters.
If you click on HTTP in Account Type box then:
In HTTP Service Provider box click on the service provider for this email account. i.e. click one of the following:
If you clicked Other in HTTP Service Provider box type URL of the mailbox in Server URL box.
Under Logon Information:
