The idea behind 'follow the instructions on the email sent to (email adress) to verify' is so that an the email address, which should be different than the on you are trying to verify, can be used as a verification tool.

So to summarize, the hotmail account email address should be different than the external email address that you are using as a verification tool. Futhermore, the external email address should exists and already be accessible to you.

I hop this answers your question.
