That's funny, your UserAgent indicates you are running in WinXP, not WinME. Regardless, Hotmail's update broke things for a lot of users, see the Windows Live support for help.

I didn't write the message from my Windows 98 PC.

Any solution?

Microsoft ended support for 98 years ago so any changes they make to hotmail are with the expectation that 98 is no longer being used. So the only solution is to fulfill their expectation.

I also encountered this problem. You can send and reply to hotmail messages with win98 by using their webpage meant for mobile devices. Hope this helps. Colin.
