Can Limited user account access Hotmail?

My administrator account can access my hotmail account. None of the limited
user accounts can access the hotmail account. We have a family hotmail
account and a family computer and I would like to have evryone except myself
use a limited account but I can't get any of the limited accounts enabled to
sign in to net passport.

Try this - log on with the limited user account, and then head into Control
Panel > User Accounts. Associate the user's Hotmail Passport details with
their XP account, and then try accessing Hotmail again. That should do the
trick.

Thank you for your response. I tried all of your suggestions but had no
success. When I am in a limited user account and go to an MSN site in the IE
brouser everything is fine and when I click on any of the choices such as My
MSN Hotmail or any others, I then go to the sign in window and enter my
hotmail address and password the next screen is the is the HTTP 404 " The
Page Cannot be Found" screen. If I enable the same user account as an
administrator account and do everything else the same imediately goes to
hotmail or My MSN or whatever is chosen.

I don't know the answer to your question but it almost sounds like there
are some kind of controls in effect that are blocking the limited accounts.
If using software from the ISP check its menus for parental controls. If
using internet security programs, check their settings as well.
