    I noticed a problem with hotmail on my wife's PC yesterday and did some investigation. It appears there were some security changes at the site over the past few days and hotmail has invalidated the login and asking for additional security information. I'm not sure what the reason is or who was affected but one of the symptoms is exactly what you described.

    To verify open a browser window in safari and go to Sign In and attempt to login. If you get prompted for additional login information then you've identified the problem. You'll need to change your password and then go into mail and make the changes there.
