I’m sure a good many of you are Hotmail users, and an even better many of you hate Hotmail with a passion of a thousand Vegas suns, and a reasonable many of those probably are still using it anyways since you are too lazy to make your friends learn a new address. Well, me too…
Anyways, how do you cope with this? Short of always c&ping links or abandoning this POS service? Didn’t there used to be a nifty keyboard shortcut that let you escape frames into a new window or something?
I’ve been holding back a few weeks to see if Hotmail was going to join Google and Yahoo in offering a whole lot more free email space, but since they are sticking to a very measly amount, I’ll probably switch to one of the other free sitees that offer 50 times more storage capacity.
And, yes, I, too, have been frustrated by the “You are visiting…” frame for years now. I’ve become accustomed to copying and pasting the links I get…Not the greatest but not the end of the world, either.
I got a few GMail invites to anyone who wants to flee from MSN. Email my username at gmail.com with a first and last name (preferably your own, but I’m not picky), and the email address to which you want the invitation sent.
This makes no difference. I still get the “you are visiting a site outside of Hotmail…” Copy link doesn’t work either.
Any way it doesn’t bother me enough to warrant changing. I was a paid subscriber ($20 a year for the extra storage) and because of that, when they started giving out the upgrades to compete with gmail, I got 2GB.
Anyone know a way to get around the ad that comes up on the right side of the screen? My computer freezes up for a good 20-30 secs waiting for it, but only when I use my account. When my wife accesses hers from the same comp, there is no problem.
