Recently hotmail changed their thing slightly and added new features. For example when you are in the 'junk' folder and delete something a window comes up asking if you want to report this Microsoft as junkmail.

Now, these windows arent system windows, theyre webpage popups. And in safari they dont work. None of the buttons, (Ok, cancel) will do anything. And this happens with any kind of windows like that in hotmail. But iv just gotten around this by selecting the emails in junk and putting them in sent items (gets deleted every 30 days) and no popup comes up.

But now when I click a link in an email a popup comes up saying that it may not be safe and "do you want to continue"

BUT I CAN'T CLICK YES!

So i havent been able to go to any links in any hotmail messages!

Does anyone have any suggestions??

Hotmail blows. Try Gmail out. Email me if you need an invite.

Otherwise, if you're set on using Hotmail, I guess you can go and try to use it with Firefox.

I've also had this problem for a while. (the only thing I use Safari for is to check my hotmail; I use a different passport in Firefox)

I just leave it now, as after a week junk emails will delete themselves, and it seems to stay at a pretty constant level. (around 50 or so)

It's hardly ideal, but I've yet to see a fix for it.

You could always get the httpmail plugin for mail.app, and use that for hotmail; but I've had bad experiences with it in the past. Rather than copying my inbox as I had said, it moved everything from hotmail onto my mac; which was reformatted shortly after - I lost all my mail, including some very important information. This is why I switched from hotmail to gmail.

Try to unblock via the menu or do apple-key K.

Try using hotmail with mail if thats possible.
I have tried blocking/unblocking popups and I have tried using hotmail in Mail but I didn't like it.

Answer to Problem

It has nothing to do with Pop-Up Blocker. To be able to click external links go to Options in Hotmail, then choose "Mail Display Settings" and at the bottom mark: "Never show a warning after I have clicked a link." That allows you to visit external links.
