Another person found that changes at hotmail required them to tweak their firewall settings. Have you?
Win XP sp 1
For some strange reason I can only sign into my hotmail using Opera browser. It's a good thing I had it installed because when IE kept asking me to re-type my password I got scared thinking that my email was hijacked, but then I tried opera and it worked .
I can still use msn messenger but IE won't work.
I need IE for hotmail because not all the functionality is allowed when using Opera (seems like microsoft don't want us using Opera on their site).
PS: the other microsoft-ish browsers don't work either (like MYIE2, maxthon, slimbrowser, firebox
