Your contacts are held at msn

this is how you can sign on at any computer and your contacts appear. So i would say you have been hacked and your contacts
deleted for fun.

* Stronger password needed

I've got a friend with a hotmail account on Hotmail and she regularly 'sends' me the same mail. We all know now not to open it as it has the title 'Hi!'

Whenever I use Windows Live Messenger on someone elses PC (I refuse to use the shite on mine) I lose all my contacts... and last time Rhea lost me on HER account as well, and it wouldnt let her add me!! Then I go back to MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger and all is well.

What a load of shite Microsoft have turned it into!!
