Hotmal with IE 5.1 Preview release Apps
some people (including myself) have been having trouble with IE 5.1 and logging into hotmail. here is a workaround.

when you go to hotmail, go to the address bar and delete the part that says login, and type start/username that is whatever your username is. so if it was brodie then the whole address should look like this:
http://lc3.law5.hotmail.passport.com/cgi-bin/start/brodie
as long as it has cgi-bin/start/brodie at the end it doesnt really matter, this will give you a password/username prompt pop up. interestingly it remembers your username for the duration of your IE session.

Option #2: Use OmniWeb

I use Hotmail with no problems in OmniWeb. It's a little funny that IE is problematic on thier own service.
