Bug with Microsoft software using Microsoft services


I didn't know whether to get really mad or break out laughing when I found this - every time I try to log into hotmail using explorer, I get redirected to a screen prompting me to enter my password again. No, matter what I do, I end up at this screen. Note: this was not accompanied by an error messgae, so i did enter my password correctly. I even tried screwing with the preferences, noticing that java support was disabled by default. But even after turning java on, and getting a nice little note from microsoft saying that java support was untested, no go with hotmail. Anyone else experiencing the same ironic situation?
