Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
By the sounds of it you are using Outlook 2007 or 2010
to download your email from sites like hotmail and Yahoo you need POP3 not Exchange. Exchange is a Microsoft Email server used by companies.
to remove the exchange section in outlook you need to go to the "Configuration Panel" then click on "Mail" in there you will have a profile called "Outlook" click on "Email acounts" and remove the item that says "Exchange" then click "Add " tick the box "Manually selct settings" select POP3 and add the details for your email as per their instructions

Unfortunately, if you are on a home computer there is no way to make the Exchange Server available because you are not on a network that has an exchange server. Exchange servers are used to hosts multiple computers with a mail service.
If you are tied to a network at work or business, you will need to have the exchange server they have setup by name, applied to your email account. Until your name and exchange server are resolved to your account you won't be able to access your email.
You can setup Microsoft outlook to upload your email from your yahoo account or any other email account if you wish though. You would have to setup a POP3 email account through Microsoft Outlook though.
Not sure exactly what you are wanting to do.
If you just want an email account. Go to www.mail.live.com.
Setup an email account and you can access your email from there.
Hope this helps!
