When i use my windows live hotmail webmail account with seamonkey
1.1.16 and earlier, I can read my email but when I try to compose
mail, I cannot write the text of the mail.
The mail account works fully with Firefox so the hotmail end looks

One way around this is to change you're user agent.
The UA tells the world what browser you're using, and
what operating sytem you're using. For example, your

This tells me you're using winXP [thats NIT 5.1],
you're using the US version of SeaMonkey, version 1.1.16.
If you install the UA Switcher, then you can change
your UA and pretend you're another browser, and a
nother operating system. You can get it here:
