All i can say is that most of my friends msn contacts that go to my school in the uk have .com hotmail email addresses.

And they live in the uk so i think its perfectly fine to have a .com hotmail email address. :tazz:

Hi there,

Recently after i have installed my new rpinter I have had a few problems.

My firewall says that my printer is being contacted from a remote machine and through port 1025 listener etc. I have denied it.

I am not sure what exactly this is is it bad ?

Please Help Thanks :tazz:

I'm guessing you want a hotmail.com address because they give all the americans who've had their accounts for ages 250mb of storage. I was in america when I made mine up, changed it to an uk address when I moved here, and hotmail hasn't noticed.

making up an address though, its not technically illegal, but rather stupid.

why don't you just sign up to hotmail.com? the hotmail.co.uk domain was only really added so that people who wanted a certain username that was already used in the .com domain would have a chance to try and get it in the .co.uk domain.
