    I believe it is a privacy issue (or an attempt at avoiding one). That way if you happen to walk away from your computer for a certain amount of time and someone else comes along they can't access your email. Like for a shared computer in the workplace. Not 100% sure though.

    They can still access the mail, just they can't follow the link without refreshing. Seems pointless to me, suppose that's Hotmail getting more useful everyday - really it's getting a pain to use on a 56k it's so bulky.

    You should use outlook to retrieve your hotmail messages.... go probably a little faster on a 56k
    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!
