    I don't know if other "services" do this, but i have noticed that Hotmail keeps refreshing ? itself every minute or so ! Whether it's doing the same or similar ?

    By the way, i'm not endorsing unlinQ as i've never used, or heard of it before. Just saw the link by PooseyII :thumb: in here - https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=1755400#post1755400 - Post 29

    Hotmail, Gmail, Y! Mail, and just about every modern webmail service all do this to check for new messages. The idea is that you leave your webmail open in its tab, and the tab title changes to read "xx new messages" or something similar.
