This was recently posted on Neowin but then was deleted. Any way, the thing is here: You can get a Windows Live Mail! account for free. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a small exploit that was discovered by someone
Yes, it really works.
UPDATE: Instructions now below, since linked site is down.
1) Open up Internet Explorer. MSN likes Internet Explorer, and hates Firefox. (Damn Microsoft!)
2) For this to work, you must be signed out of MSN. Go to the MSN Homepage, and double check you are signed out.
3) Copy this URL to Internet Explorer: Right Click On Here -> Copy.
4) You should be redirected to another URL (Another URL to login). Sign in.
5) You should see the regular hotmail once signed in.
6) Once you see the regular hotmail, do Step #3 again. Copy the same URL above.
7) Click Ã¢â‚¬ËœParticpateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ on the bottom (Scroll down!) and walla!
P.S: It does work. Make sure your language/country in your settings is set to English, and America. I think Windows Live Mail! is for U.S. only, so that might be the issue. And be quick! Scroll down to where it says Ã¢â‚¬ËœParticipateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and click it!
You know it works when you see
after step 6
