I've not been able to access Hotmail on my machine for some months. This is because I have an antiquated Operating System. To try and retain the stuff I have stored in Hotmail mailboxes (because your account gets deleted if not used) I have logged in when visiting my daughter. Last time I did this, I received a message from a friend, in Canada, informing me that Hotmail intended to charge for Hotmail, and, that, as a protest, one needed to send individual (not forwarded mails) to a cetain number of contacts. The friend who advised me of this is a pretty internet-savvy young chap. Unfortunately, I cannot retrieve the eMail on this machine.
