Wifi And Email Problems

Hi there. I have a new samsung s8000 jet. I have two problems which are really confusing me!

1. I can search for wifi connections (ie home) and find them. I active, search and try to connect to the wifi however it starts to connect then disconnects straight away! In the settings I notice that a WEP key is not inserted (which is needed) so I try to type in my 26 digit WEP key however there is only space for 10 characters. What can I do as this is the case for a number of different wifis in my area??

2. I have set up my Hotmail UK email as so I can recieve emails and download them, however it will not let me send? Is this just because it is hotmail and I cant get around this problem? If so what type of email account does work?

Any help would be very much appreciated.
