Beware the length of Password for Windows Live ID, Hotmail and MSN.

Today, when I changed my password for my account on Hotmail ( Windows Live ID), I found it has max length limit on it. The max length is 16. It is fine. But the problem is, on change password page, it only shows min number, you can type in password longer than 16, only first 16 characters are saved.

So just beware, only first 16 characters are useful, even you set 16+ long.
