Just another reason to use gmail. I have one of my gmail addresses registered with windows live so i can use it like windows live, do you think this would affect that address?

You'll probably be affected if you went to the phishing site. Altho doesnt worry me, most of the info I put in is fake :p Only thing that needs it is the Xbox... (MSN isnt installed on this). And the only way I log in, is when the Xbox is on. Since, MSN is part of it

I use gmail as well, but because of a league I am in, I also need msn messenger and that paticular hotmail address for that purpose.

I am always careful what I click on. It is good practice to change a password from time to time. I also use fake info in those sort of areas.

you can set your hotmail account to remind you every 72 days to change your password.

found that out today

lol, you using a USB kb on yours?? You can once you update it. I may chuck a wireless kb / mouse on this. Saves me using the controller, which takes longer (for typing that is)
