These few days, I have had a strange experience with hotmail. Both using Outlook Express and from logging onto the hotmail site directly....

After an hour or 2, my inbox is completely removed and a new mail from microsoft saying I must log on again and complete a visual security check (you know the thing....I am presented with a jumble of 8 letters/numbers and I have to type what I see)

After that my inbox is restored.

What on earth is going on here?!!!!Anyone else getting this?

I noticed that HOTMAIL now requires a "PAY" upgrade to work on my PC "Incredimail" Mail Programme.

According to Incredimail this is a new MS rule. My wifes Hotmail Accounts both stopped working as well...........

Not much help I know, but Info for you more In Step people
