If you do not have a desktop email client set as your default handler, Windows Live Messenger just loads the webpage for your Hotmail webmail account; it does not log you in automatically. You need to change your browser settings to keep the cookies between browser sessions, not log out when you are done, and, if necessary, change your Hotmail account security settings to let you remain logged in for extended periods of time.
Or you could just use a desktop email application such as Windows Live Mail...
Hi, I am currently very frustrated with Live messenger, as every time I click the email button on live messenger, instead of automatically opening IE and logging me into my email account, it opens IE and takes me to login.live.com instead, where i have to manually input my email address and password.
This is very annoying, and defeats the purpose of the email inbox button on the live messenger.
Any ideas on how to rectify this and have it open my inbox as it is supposed to??
