Went to log onto MSN last night and trillian came up with an incorrect password message, then the collection failed in Outlook Express. Tried a login on Hotmail.com and it wouldn't let me, so I used the lost password/reset option and after answering the question, I changed my password to something else and then changed the hint question, just in case.

Don't know whether this is a glitch in Hotmail/MSN, or whether someone had been in there and changed it, anyone else had similar experience?

Checked my hotmail accounts and MSN and all seems to be normal Rolf. So nothing changed while I was relaxing in Poole and Bournemouth this weekend. :)

Cheers Brian, perhaps it was just a glitch then, better to be safe than sorry though, so I've also changed my access question.
