    Whenever I log out of hotmail on my mac, I get to a window which says:

    "Signing out
    You're signing out of the following sites:

    X Hotmail

    If we can sign you out of a site, X appears next to its name. If we cannot sign you out of a site, appears next to its name.

    If we couldn't sign you out of a site, click Try Again to try signing out again.

    When you're done, click Done."

    Trying again does nothing, what should I do?

    On a side note, is a GMail account a POP or an IMAP account, (and what do these acronyms mean?)

    Same thing happens to me with the hotmail account that I still have active. I just close the browser window.

    A quick and easy explanation of POP and IMAP are located at

    Does the same to me too sometimes. I've never been able to log back in without re-entering my password though, so I wouldn't worry about it. If you're paranoid (like me :) ) delete cookies after you've signed out. Or use HTTPMail and access Hotmail through
