    I just tried it and it's dead. Had someone else try it from a different computer. Website not found. They must be having "technical difficulties". Glad I only use it for internet orders to make it the one that gets all the spam!

    I knew I would find a topic on this! Yeah, mine is dead too. I bet this wont last long however, they most likely have a lot of people working on it. Maybe they are making some major changes, or they got attacked by a hacker?
     
  9. Ah me either, this is really annoying as my profile tells me I have emails but I can't read them! Messenger isn't working either. :mad:

    Ah it's ok now, hotmail's back... Just in the nick of time, I imagine had it been down for another ten minutes I would have turned green and woken up tomorrow morning wearing nothing but tattered trousers :p
     
  14. That would explain why MSN messenger wasn't working...I had checked my hotmail email around 8am PST and it worked just fine. I then went a did a couple things, reboot my computer around 8:27am and MSN messenger wouldn't sign in...
     
  15. Im glad that all the problems happen during peak time in america...thats when im sleeping
     
  16. hotmail has been messing up so much lately i just got a yahoo account instead
     
  17. Yeah i have both just in case Hotmail or MSN is out...every Friday after noon at 5:55pm i get a message saying your getting signed out of Messenger very frustrating.

    Also i read today in the newspaper that Hotmail and Yahoo might start charging to send emails in a bid to get rid of spam, it would be like 1cent per email, which would send a spammer broke seeing they are sending 1000's of messages a day.
    I dont really like the idea, no one then would really be able to get free email service then, which is really bad for the people who dont have a interent conncetion that check there email from internet cafes or libraries

    That was just one of the ideas for preventing spammers. Another more feasible idea is to "charge" computer cycles to send email. Basically it would take a significant amount of time (say a few seconds) to send an email. Not really much of a hindrance if you're only sending one or two emails, but it would take forever to send the thousands of emails that spammers do.
