You can remove the plugin.
Use a different browser without the plugin if it is browser specific.
You should be able to access the Hotmail account from another computer or maybe even
from using search instead of going thru the plugin.

How to remove plugin:
Delete the folder /Users/<your account>/Library/Mail/Bundles/httpmail.mailbundle in Finder and restart Mail. The plugin should no longer show in the preferences afterward.

I don't see the need for a plugin in the first place. You can send all gmail and hotmail emails to one hotmail account.
As well as ISP email accounts.
