    Lounge newsletter stuck in hotmail inbox (IE6 SP2)

    This seems to be the right forum for this question, since it involves webmail (Hotmail), but the Moderators should feel free to move it to a more appropriate forum if there is one. A Lounge daily newsletter (Daily archive of Windows XP) is stuck in my Hotmail inbox. If I try to open it, either from the webmail page or via Outlook, I get a ZoneAlarm alert asking me if I want to send my social security number to IP address 64.4.56.253, which seems to be a MS Passport address. Naturally, I don't want to do this, but clicking No prevents the message from opening. Nor can I delete the message or move it to another folder. No other message gives me this problem. This being Hotmail, perhaps there is an ad attached to the message that is making this request of information from my computer. How do I get this message out of my inbox?

    Meanwhile, I have been transferring my newsletter subscriptions to another email address so I can get rid of Hotmail.

    Don't know the answer (or cure), but out of interest, what date was it sent on?

    Thanks for this. I checked this site and spent a little more time exploring the MyVault feature of zonealarm and I'm not sure I understand it. At any rate, I deleted the ss number from Vault and was then able to delete the message from the inbox. I still don't understand what it was about that message that kept asking for that data.
