Please be aware that using a Hotmail email is not safe and leaves you open to a massive security breach - not just for Toadwater (it has nothing to do with TW), but also for PayPal, other games, anything really.

Under certain conditions, it is possible for other people take possession of your Hotmail email, which they can then use together with the "Lost Password" functionality practically every web site has to take control of your accounts.

Due to this glaring, ridiculous security hole, Toadwater will from now on ban Hotmail from the allowed email providers. Everyone with an existing Hotmail address on their accounts had it changed to protect them from this exploit. We recommend that you switch your email to something less insecure asap.

Understand that this is not a Toadwater problem, neither caused by us nor possible to be fixed by us. If you use Hotmail for other sensitive websites, you should change it there as well as soon as possible!
