    Hotmail (XP PRO)

    Has anyone else found a weird conflict with XP and hotmail? I use www.mail.com (no probs), my wife uses www.hotmail.com. XP does not like hotmail. I've tried activating/deactivating the XP firewall, ZA firewall etc etc - hotmail is the only mail service, and just about the only IE page that seems to cause grief. We do NOT what to use outlook. Any thoughts/suggestions/similar experiences?

    Thank-you!

    I have no problems with hotmail. Can you describe what happens when you try to use hotmail and in particular any error messages.

    Hi Tony, hotmail seems to cause XP to hang...and again it seems to be the only email provider that does. In addition to mail.com, lycos mail seems to work fine as well.

    I did a bit of searching and found 2 possible causes.
    Internet Explorer HTTP settings
    Windows Messenger disabled
