    Hotmail block's me from forwarding and sending e-mail.
    They claim that sometimes to avoid spammer's they ask that you put in charasters before sendind mail. What are charasters.I hope someone can solve my problem so I can use hotmail again. TKS

    Re: Hotmail CAPTCHA

    The characters are a CAPTCHA image similar to what you have likely seen on other web sites.

    Look on the page for a box with funny looking letters with a space under them for you to type them in.

    If you are being prompted for them your account may have been compromised.

    I'd recommend changing your password and verifying that all account reset information is still related to alternate email accounts that you control.
