When I exit Hotmail, I want to go to my homepage, Google not MSN. How can I
make this happen? I just don’t need to be bombarded with all of NBC’s
In this excerpt from
Answercast #83, I look at why Hotmail returns users to the parent homepage
and what you can do about it.
Hotmail’s home page
The short answer is: you can’t.
The issue is that Hotmail doesn’t allow you to configure where to go next. It simply goes to its parent site when you exit or when you log off.
The cost of free service
If you want to look at it, that’s kind of the cost of a free email service. They get to do things like that and not let you change them.
The only advice I can give you is to set your homepage so that the homepage button will take you to your Google page, or wherever it is you want – so that the first thing you do after exiting Hotmail is click on the Home button to get to your homepage.
