    Hey everybody,

    TO those of you with Hotmail accounts, are you having trouble logging in today? I am getting error messages when I try to log in and I wonder if this is a system-wide problem or if it is just my account.

    Thanks

    Jason H.

    I have a couple Hotmail accounts that I access via Outlook Express, and I'm not able to connect to any of them.

    I've been able to get in, but there were a few false starts.

    Well, I just checked back and now it also unavailable to me as well. At least the junk mail is on hold as well.

    Ditto here. It's been unavailable most of the day, although there was a brief period when it was available.

    Oh well, like me pappy always said "You get what you pay for."

    I think the problem is arising progressively. Mine was working until just a moment ago. Luckily I moved my HTF responses off of hotmail a few months ago.

    I bet the next thing'll be, "For an online email service, free from days upon days of inacessible accounts, all you need do is pay the low low price of $19.99 per month." [​IMG]
    I'm not loving Hotmail right now.

    I heard that they weren't getting enough revenue from advertising so they were going to change a few things - not sure exactly what they would change though.

    Paul,

    I hear you man. It seems like the stuff that is "free" ends up being such a headache. But I am so used to certain things being free that I scoff at actually having to pay for them.

    Maybe I just need to suck it up and realize that the net is slowly becoming less free!

    How many of you would actually pay for Hotmail??
    I'd pay, if they let me select a new ID, and for faster, pop-up ad-free Hotmail that i could easily access from Outlook. And selectable interfaces (So i could disable graphics for lower-bandwidth connections).
    My maximum would be $ 15 pa. What about you?
