    They're notoriously insecure, not to mention spam magnets. If you need a reliable free email account, try hushmail.

    What did I do to make you think I give a shit?

      If you are on a PC where a person was on hotmail with it, you can actually find html files in the Temporary Internet Folders and find the entire web page sitting there!

          A word of advice. If you are asking how to hack hotmail, don't.

            logon to hotmail yourself and then disconect from the net and surf your cookies and temp files, you will be amazed at what you will see. As far as passwords being i there, I never looked, nor do I want to.

              I love hushmail.. I have quite a few hushmail premium accounts ... though one things that i hate is that some businesses block the domain... they say it is because it is a pr0n spam domain... wtf?

                  get a new pc... don't use third party crap, also it is possible that your temp internet cookies are hidden from you... for example go to a site so it will get cached, view the source, notepad will open in the temp internet area (normally hidden from every level of user)...

                    I too can attest that hushmail is worth a premium account... which I finally swayed to upgrading to per recommendation by blackwave, actually.

                    It's easy enough to script up something that will delete all temp files on a pre-determined basis.. I don't understand the use of the third party apps that waste hd space and memory (because many stay running in the background,wtf?)

                    If you are using AOL and hotmail, "why do you ask questions to which you already know the answer?"
                    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                        feel free to be more specific, such as os, browser, type of info.. etc... remote, local... if your box was sitting in my lap i could find what flavor soda you drink.

                            I agree with BW hushmail is the best! If I had a credit card I could get premium. Unfortunatly I dont which means I only get 2mb of space. In regards to hotmail, yahoo, and Aol; I know hotmail isn't the best with no the best security. Next is yahoo which isnt too bad, they use random session ids and you can't click remember me. Yahoo also has the feature of scaning attachments sent with norton antivirus, while I dont know how good that version is yahoo should be good for regular security.I dont know about Aol because I am not going to ever use dial up. If you want real security or are just paranoid go to http://www.hushmail.com and get a account.
