Hi all, I hope someone can help. What I'd like to do is set up options on my pc such that I can only access my hotmail account from home, rather than anywhere else. The reason is, because of what I do (I'm a union rep), I've accessed my account via one of the works pc's, and now I'm worried that someone may be able to read or intercept my emails.

So, can I do it? ie stop even myself from accessing my Hotmail account from any pc other than my home one?

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope someone can help.

nope...that's kind of the point of hotmail...so you can get to it wherever you are....what you've got to do is make sure to uncheck any boxes that allow hotmail to remember your logon information (username and password) and clear the history on the computer when you're done....or never go to hotmail on another computer

Is that the case even if it's a @msn.com one rather than an @hotmail.com etc one?
