I don't know if all of you are aware of you hotmail accounts safety. I can't begin to descirbe to you how easy it is to take over your account. Ok lets try though. You forgot your password so you hit forgotten password. You then hit email me. They email you. You get the link and click it. PROBLEM HERE: once the link is loaded it ask...Email? you type in the email you want to change it to. Then the new password. Bam you just took over some guys email. PROBLEM HERE!!! This is for educational use only and no one should attempt this.

It may be for educational purposes only, but some idiot is going to try it anyway. People, keep your e-mail addresses hidden, and don't let the world know what they are. That's why I like the MyLot messaging system that sends messages to an unknown location, and then we get notifications in our e-mail that we have a message. That works for me.
