    Public Service Announcement: Guys if you are using hotmail through anything other then a web based app you are going to lose that functionality soon. That ability will be reserved for paying hotmail members.

    So if you can't access your acct from an external app around April '05. That's the reason.

    You deffinatly need to give us more info.

    - Are you using the Mail.app hack?
    - Are you using proxies?
    - Did you type your password/username correctly?

    That's rather unlikely as then the original poster wouldn't be able to websurf either. Unless hotmail uses HTTPS?
