What does it mean?

Postby OnTheRoadAgain » Nov 9th, 2012, 10:18 am

when you go to your live webmail to log in and see other people's names as login options when nobody else has used your computer?
TIA

You're 100% no-one has used it?
They are not names that you recognize at all?
Are they showing up in the drop down list, or as you type out your username?

Is this what your PM was about this morning? Very confusing as I had no idea what you were talking about and no details. You have also turned off your PM ability so I couldn't even respond to you.

Are you okay???

One thing it can mean is that you have tried to log into their accounts from your computer and your computer has remembered your attempts.

It means that you have PMed those people or typed their names in a similar dialog box at one point. Cookies save such info on your computer as a means of saving you time next time you PM them or fill in an another online dialog box.
