following added 6 july, wording from original app developer: I think first you should explain to coders that hotmail has three kind of interfaces - 1 for classic view(old), and two for windows live (current) - classic and full (.NET versions). Old interface used by early registered accounts. 2 new interfaces used by new accounts and those users who switched to new interface manually. User is free to switch between new interfaces classic and full by selecting point in hotmail menu. I have the application that able to work with old classic view. It written on VB6 and its developer is strongly thinking that for working with current .NET versions of hotmail VB6 is not applicable (there are encoded cookies and so on). Then you can list the tasks of hotmailer - 1) log in 2) decode .enc file 3) restore settings 4) create letter 5) send 6) ...... (run source for full set of tasks) -- my vb program imports a list of hotmail accounts and sends email in such a way that hotmail believes a user is using web page to send. your job is to make the program do the same thing for windows live accounts (app currently can only handle hotmail apps). this will likely involve changing the vb code to .net approach
