[Web4lib] Hotmail and 'Page cannot be displayed' message

We have 86 PCs in 30 sites. The PCs and configuration are identical in
all sites. The PCs run IE6 on Windows XP.

Some of the PCs can't display Hotmail or Yahoo. When a person tries to
access the Inbox, they receive a 'This Page Cannot be Displayed'

They do not have a problem with web mail that does not use encryption.

All sites are not affected. My impression is that sites that are using
ISDN or sites that are using a slower version of broadband like 1
megabit per second download speed are affected. I know encryption uses
more bandwidth as the encrypted files are larger but, it is possible to
use Hotmail over a dial up connection.

Any ideas on what is going on?
