Logged in Messenger asking for PW to access mail?

I used to be able to login to MSN messenger and click the inbox hyperlink and it would take my directly to my hotmail inbox, but now when i loginto msn messenger and click the inbox hyperlink it takes me to the hotmail site and asks me to put in my password and then it takes me to my inbox. I hate having to type in my passord every time. Im not sure if i accidently changed a setting or sometihing. Did microsoft change it or am i doing something wrong? Im using version 4.6 (4.6.0079 to be exact)


i had this problem too for a while
all you need to do is, in the main messenger window, go into the "Tools" menu, then into "Options" then accross to the "privacy" part, and make sure there ISNT a tick in the "always ask me for my password...." bit, and its fixed

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
