This has now happened to me on two laptops (same network) using both Internet Explorer and Firefox and two different OS (Windows 7 & xp)... Here's what happens- I log into my hotmail account and in the body of the page is a message asking me to confirm my email address- but the address is wrong. It's some strange corruption of both my hotmail and yahoo addresses. Naturally, I don't click on the message, but then the browser starts redirecting like crazy (or attempting to)... although it doesn't take me to another page. Nobody has said anything to me about receiving any strang phishing email or spam. What the hell is going on? one other thing- this happened after I configured my new iPhone with the two email accounts.....
