    Not the right place to post I'm sure, but I figured someone here would know. The other day I realized that the URL for my Hotmail website (after I log in) shows up as what is in the subject line above. Doing a google search seemed to imply it could be Phishing scam (which is what a couple Google Searches implied). So of course I changed my password, etc. But kept getting it.

    I just had a work colleague of mine login to hotmail on her computer, and her URL was sn129w.snt129.mail.live.com.

    Is this just some sort of URL naming schema used by Hotmail/Windows because of the number of servers required to run Hotmail?

    Thx
