Are you referring to the Security option in WLMsgr 2009(version 14) that instead of saying 'checking Hotmail' says
"Ask for my password when I go to Hotmail and other websites that require a Windows Live ID"
Also is this 'Sign-in' options checked in WLMsgr 2009(version 14) found at Tool\Options\Sign
- Allow automatic sign in when connected to the Internet
In conjunction with the above the automatic sign-in(same screen that prompts for username and pw, remember pw) needs to be enabled
for automatic sign-in
How are you accessing Hotmail ?
The Mail icon in WLMsgr
Via your browser(IE) at mail.live.com or hotmail.com
If I access Hotmail via mail.live.com with WLMsgr's two options configured as note above the Windows Live Sign-in Assistant prompts
me to sign in with my Windows Live ID. I have to click my Live ID to sign in.
Further, if the Live ID in the Windows Live Sign In Assistant is **not configured** to remember my password I have to enter my
password, if remember password is enabled the Sign In Assistant still prompts me to select my Live ID prior to logging in to
This prompt occurs regardless of whether or not "Ask for my password when I go to Hotmail and other websites that require a Windows
Live ID" is checked. I.e. The Sign In Assistant confguration(password not checked) appears to be controlling the password
requirement entry to Hotmail.
