windows live mail

when i click on read mail icon in command bar it opens windows live mail without asking for password which it should ask for,also when i go to sign in box for windows live mail it has my email address as it should (no remembered password) but if i cancel sign in it still opens to mail box. Can anyone explain whats happening as i have never come across this problem

I am sorry, I cannot really get what you are saying. Even though you sign out, it still logs you in automatically?

when the sign in to windows live ID comes up my email address is there but the password is blank which is what i want(i want to be able to put the password in myself), but if i then click cancel or click off the sign in box it takes me to my email inbox page anyway.

I had the same problem and found this out. Click on forget me, then sign back in and leave remember password blank as usual. Then when you are done remember to click sign out. Also if you are signed in to messenger this could be a cause of your nuance. Good luck to you!

cleared cookies but problem persists. This has me baffled, if i click sign in without a password i am prompted for my password but then if i cancel without putting a password i go straight to email inbox. Have you any other ideas.

Check your saved passwords list in IE, and delete anything related to mail.

I finally understood your problem and the same goes for me. that seems buggy to me. Please post back if you find the cure for this odd behavior!
