Ever since yesterday, I have been having trouble getting into my Hotmail account.

Is anyone else having the same problem?

If yes, does anyone know when it will be solved.

some trouble... Sep 15, 2007

Just this week I had a problem with it. I could still get into my account but I had a horrible "light" version for about 3 days. Just the bare bones - no colors or formatting.

I put a note on their feedback and in about a day it was back to normal. I never had a reply so I don't know if that was coincidence or not.

best of luck!

Lucky one Sep 15, 2007

It seems I am the lucky one. Have not had any trouble so far.
Hopefully your account will work soon again.
Good luck!!!

new design Sep 15, 2007

Ciao Lucinda,

I have a very old hotmail account that stopped working nearly completely for some weeks. After a while I was getting afraid, I might be dealing with some virus.
However, hotmail changed the design these days, so probably that's just some "side effects" of the birth...
now everything is fine again, "new and polished" and naturally workingicon_wink.gif

But if it's just about the entering: it's happening sometimes that the server would be very busy and you would not be able to enter the account. Hopefully that's going to be better now with the changes made in their system.

A colleague of mine had the same problem Sep 15, 2007

2 or 3 days ago hier in Vienna- No idea whether she's still having trouble or not, but it seems you're not the only one -

Keep your finger crossed and good luck!

Hidden messages Sep 26, 2007

For some time I had the same problems as those described by Lucinda but I solved them by logging to, instead of

But now another problem has come up: when I go to "Today" I can see the new messages in my inbox. But after I had opened, read, and closed them (without deleting them) they just disappear. They are simply nowhere to be seen, not in the inbox, not in the trash can.

Has anybody else experienced this problem of messages disappearing without being deleted from Hotmail?
