Is it possible for hotmail to remember all my 3 hotmail addresses?
Because the messenger does that when I click on "Remember me", but I always need to retype my email addresses for checking emails.

I know that there is a auto-forward function in hotmail (like from old to new), but that is not what I need. :thumbsup:

I remember in WLM 8.5 I never needed to login again to check emails, but WLM 9 does not work that way anymore. :flowers:

Any ideas? :trumpet:

BTW, this is about remembering the email addresses, not passwords.

thx

I stay logged in on one Hotmail account and forward other Hotmail account and ISP email account to that one account.

That doesn't answer your question though as I understand it. Next time you log in see if that option is mentioned.
Other options such as the one I mentioned can be found by clicking on options and then clicking on more options.
You should see the options below and more.

I prefer to use each email accounts individually, and I don't understand why I need to login twice (msn then email) if I have previously logged into another account. It seems like WLM is separated from hotmail, which is strange because people use the same login info for both.

but thanks for the info.

any other suggestions?

Once you have forwarded 2 of your email accounts to the third account, you can switch to each hotmail account by clicking on your name in the top right corner of the email page once you have logged into the third account and choose a different account from the drop down list.

If I log out of my "main" account and then click on the link I set in my bookmarks, the log in page for hotmail opens. I do not log in twice like you do. I never see MSN in either IE or Firefox.

If the "Today" page opens when you log in, there is an option to skip the "Today" page.
