Hotmail quickly gained in popularity and reported more than 30 million active members by February 1999.Later,A security issue appeared in Hotmail during this period that permitted anybody to log into any Hotmail account using the password 'eh';it was at the time called "the most widespread security incident in the history of the Web."

The exploitable vulnerability exposed millions of accounts to tampering between August 7, 2001 and August 31, 2001.After a period of technological stagnation, the webmail industry received a significant boost in 2004 when Google announced its own mail service, Gmail. Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail – introduced upgraded versions of their email services with greater speed, security, and advanced features.

When you receive an audio file in a Hotmail message (once you allow all content to be shown), you have the option to “Play audio”, “download”, or “download as zip”. Selecting “Play audio” brings up a simple audio player, right in your email message, and you can listen directly without having to open Windows Media Player or another audio player.
