Do I need a .NET passport to use hotmail?

  s99Raj 18:26 17 Feb 2005

A friend of mine has been using a hotmail account for some time but now can't seem to log on. So she gave me her e-mail address and password to try to access her e-mail account from my computer but I can't log on either.

It didn't seem to recognise the e-mail address and/or password. Now it's made the account temporarily unavailable due to me trying a few times.

Does she NEED a .net passport to continue? Or is there some other solution? Thanks.

Your Hotmail account is your passport. Sorry I can't explain why you or your friend can access it.

Yep - that's exactly where I'm going, but still no luck.

Does your friend use Windows or MSN Messenger,as logging into one of these will normally allow you to access the email on hotmail relating to your account.
