signing in hotmail


Sir,

When im using a dialup connection I can log in to my user and pass in hotmail, but when I am connected in a network this message comes out "loginnet.pass.com could not be found" although I input the correct pass and username. What is the problem ?

what browser? i know for me personally konqueror no longer works for hotmail. get a nice pop up saying this site requires authentication asking for a username and password which then logs into hotmail but proceeds to get stuck at a certain hotmail tab (i can't remember which it is, although i think it was compose) no matter which frickin' link i click on. so if i have to check my hotmail account, i use either mozilla or opera which both work fine.

hotmail's pretty damn decent for a spam account. which is what my hotmail accounts are for. i don't give out my isp addy at all except to people i know and hotmail doesn't require me to give them real info when signing up. eh te, to each their own. i guess i'll look into linuxmail though.

Hey Guys

Hotmail has stopped all browsers (to my knowlege), of signing in except thier beloved IE 6, (and 5.5?)

Konqueror does work with hotmail.
Simply change your browser Identifcation to Windows XP, IE 6 and thier will be no problems.

(Hotmail does suck but is useful if most of your freinds are dumb enough to use MS windows, and MSN messenger)

Thanks Guys
