Subject: Google Desktop Search

If you noticed during the install, it gives you the opportunity to 
include https pages in web history caching.  When it said this it made 
me curious since I didn't know it indexed web history at all, but 
apparently it does and this option can be disabled on the preferences 
page if you don't want it. 

I tried to reproduce what you said happened with Hotmail and it did 
index the messages I have viewed and brought them up in the search 
results, and it did let me view a cached copy without a 
username/password, but it did not allow me to access the real message in 
my account without my username/password.  Are you set to login 
automagically?
