When I'm at my Windows Live home page, h t t p://home.live.com/ the "Checking for new messages..." never stops. I deleted all messages in all folders too thinking maybe one of them was the cause of the problem but the check goes on. The Windows Live help isn't much help either, I've searched and can't find anything about the never ending check for new messages. What do I have to do to make it finally give up the search or is this normal behavior?

thanks in advance,



I just figured out it has something to do with IE 8's security settings. I keep security for the Internet, Local intranet & Resstricted sites zones set to High, the Trusted sites zone set to Medium-high, and add sites as needed to to the Trusted sites zone when I need them to work. I have *.live.com, *.msn.com, *.hotmail.com, *.passport.com, & *.microsoft.com in Trusted sites already but obviously I'm still missing something. Anyone have any idea what I need in Trusted sites for my mail to work as it should?

Thanks again,
