Dear all,

I would like to know how I can access hotmail by HTTP through Proxy server.
Since I got this error message: error report (0x800CCC37) : 'proxy ask for
authenication'. Thanks in advance.

I don't think that it is possible to access Hotmail through a proxy. Too
many interactive scripts, I think. I could be wrong.

Guess you don't like that your IP address gets divulged in their
X-Originating-IP header. Guess you don't want to be held accountable
for your words. Might be your employer doesn't want you wasting time or
harming their corporate image by using an external mail service. Looks
like it is time for you to start Googling for anonymizing e-mail
providers (that aren't blacklisted by your employer) so you can hide
from your recipients (until they blacklist you or use spam filters).
Even if you (202.175.118.18) find that there are no anonymizing e-mail
providers located in Macau
(http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/mc.html), you can
find them elsewhere in the internationally-based Internet.

So why might someone want to use a proxy to hide themself when using
Hotmail? Spam. Scam. Harrasment. Vengeful puerile. Malcontent.
Bypass employer's security or policies (or whomever actually owns the
resources that the sender uses). A possible legit need: whistleblowing
(solution = go to the library or an Internet cafe). Since Pat never
mentions why he [thinks he] has a need to use a proxy to use Hotmail,
our imaginations run amuck, but muck just might be what Pat wants to
spew.

Hotmail cannot be accessed in such a manner.
