I am using ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 6.5.737.000 and have been using the Windows Live Mail Beta version of hotmail for years without incident. Microsoft recently made some changes to their software 2-3 weeks ago, and it now hangs intermittently about 25% of the time. I could be reading and sending emails just fine, but it will sometimes just hang. When I shut down Zonealarm, hotmail works fine. It also works fine on another machine that doesn't run Zonealarm. In the Privacy section of Zonealarm, I've configured the following sites to have complete access including animation, webbugs and private headers.
-- hotmail.com, hotmail.msn.com, msn.com, login.live.com, by123w.bay123.mail.live.com
Any help would be appreciated.
