Thumbs up Trick to get access to hotmail even if its "filtered" out

sponsored links
Just a little tip for hotmail users: at work I could never get into hotmail because of SmartFilter. It would block the site and report that it blocked it because it was a "chat" site (Don't you just hate "content filters?")
Anyway, I found a simple way to gain access to hotmail even with "SmartFilter": just go to and sign in to passport ( .Net ) using your hotmail email address and password. Once you're in, just click on "my hotmail" on the left side of the screen and vio-la!
This only works on 1 of my 2 hotmail accounts...I have no idea why that is, but I thought it might come in handy for someone

Hi there,

If you are just trying to check your emails then you can always use a program to do it. Because you are not browing to the Hotmail site these should bypass the Smart Filter with no problem.

Ones like Outlook Express or



POP Peeper

And although I have never been able to get it to work for me. A lot of people are able to use FoxMail to check Hotmail as well.

Fox Mail
