    I've messed up my Hotmail Birthdate! (IE 5.5)

    Dear Group,

    I know this is slightly off- topic, but I hope someone can help. I read Woody's Windows Watch today and went in to uncheck the boxes on my Hotmail account. I inadvertenly changed my birthdate to 2000 (slip of the finger) and now of course it won't let me change it back. Is there any way to fix this, or do I just have to abandon this account?

    Thank you!
    Judy (slippery fingers) M.

    Maybe it doesn't matter -- I see to be able to do everything I could before, and as a person born in 2000 I'm still getting spam about ** Spam post - please alert a Moderator ** and various unmentionables. I did have to give Microsoft another e-mail address and a credit card number as a "parent," and they signed the "parent" up for a Passport account. Sigh.

    BTW, you fellow Loungers must consider this one off-topic, or the answer to my question must really be tough. I see I've had 14 readers, and no responses. I've had a few questions before, and have gotten responses so quickly. I've been able to help a few folks, too. I really appreciate the Lounge.

    Ah - but the quality of those 14 was of the highest order <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    To be honest, I expect the clarity of your subject line was enough to give most potential viewers the gist of your problem and they didn't feel the need to delve deeper. It would be interesting to know if you do run into any future quirks - I'm tempted to say 'teething' problems - or benefits as a 2-year old Hotmailer . . .
