Hotmail trouble today

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Is anyone having trouble with hotmail today? I can't get in. I've even tried going to the MSN site and going in that way. I keep getting a blank screen.
If any of you have hotmail, could you do me a favour and check to see if you're having the same dilemma? So frustrating.

I usually have trouble every day. But not a blank screen. It usually says cannot reach server or some such nonsense, but if I do it a few times, it works. I checked my mail a little while ago. I actually did get a blank screen the 1st time, but when I tried again, it worked. What do you want for free, right????

I was having problems, but it did end up working. I just checked and it is still working fine now.

At least I'm not the only one. I thought maybe they'd put a blocker on me for some unknown reason.
I've never had trouble before.
I'll try again.

I have MSN Messenger- and I just clicked the 'open your email box' button and it worked for me
Then I tried going directly to the website and it told me the server was busy.

Here's s hint for you all - http://gmail.google.com! Google's free email account. SO much less spam, heaps of storage, so much more reliable than Hotmail, and get all your friends onto it as well, and use gmail as your chat client rather than MSN!!!!!

I couldn't sing into my MSN Trillian(all messengers together). It finally signed me in after trying for an hour. But, I still can't get into my email, either thru www.hotmail.com or through Trillain. As Nat would say... :censor::censor::censor::censor:!

ETA: It worked!!

I just got in successfully, however it was really slow connecting.
I'll keep the gmail in mind. However, I would hate to change my address as it's been the same one for about 6 years.

Mine's been the same for 8 years. I don't wanna change it much, either.

You can set up forwarding to get your hotmail emails going to your gmail...

Trust me - it's a change you won't regret!! I've had my hotmail address for about 10 years now, and only use it to chat to the couple of old school friends who still use it.

Hmmm weird, my hotmail is fine today...

About Gmail though, I recently opened a gmail account and there has been NO SPAM as of yet..It is very handy, and has its own little IM thing

I've been having trouble accessing my old hotmail accounts through Outlook Express for the past week or so.

Hotmail no longer supports POP3 email for free accounts, but my accounts are years old so they are not subject to that change. However, they must have done something because I can access all of my other various email accounts through Outlook Express except my hotmail ones. I can get to hotmail at the site, just not using my Outlook Express.

And trying to deal with MSN about this is like talking to a brick wall. I swear that they don't even bother reading the emails because they give you canned responses that don't have anything to do with the issue you are asking about.
