Welcome to the board Click Watcher.

I think you can do is press the "zoom" button (+), or I think increasing your form font size will help. (prefs-> documents-> form text field multiline).

Interestingly enough, I just went and signed up another account at Hotmail and received a ERROR Due to an internal error your request cannot be processed. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

thanks.

does this mean that Opera is not able to read some HTML correctly. even this link sent by Webmaster World was not correctly displayed. kind of losing confi in Opera.

Sorry, I forgot to mention, if you just switch your user agent to Netscape (Mozilla 4.76), the hotmail compose window works just fine. Which is actually surprising as Hotmail usually finds something to break Opera usage within 24hours of a new release (intentional).

Switch your agent under Prefs->Connections->Browser Identification (use the drop down to switch to moz).

It is doubtful that any MS own properties will ever work good with Opera due to MS's use of proprietary code and (I believe) intentional bug creation.

great thanks ...
and thanks for the tip too
i was sure i visited the opera faqs
a while back and it was listed there as a bug they were blaming on hotmail.

sorry to answer in error :)

Another solution, of course is not to use hotmail. ;)
