Is anybody else having problems with Hotmail and MSN messenger? I can't seem to log into either.

Yeah my sister can't use hotmail either. And I just noticed that I can't use MSN.

edit: I lied, MSN just logged me in.

hotmail sucks...
there are a lot of alternatives, and they give you even more than hotmail, like free sms/mms and stuff.

but the best solution is to have a homepage and have an email adress @myhomepage.com or whatever. I made this with my class, and I feel proud to be one of the owners of 21 @project-infcom.ch-adresses. You feel kinda unique...

Anybody else having problems with GMail?

No, of course not. GMail always works.



Ironically, I used my hotmail address when I signed up here and have been waiting for half an hour to post this. Was it worth it? Probably not.

It pissed me off today. Takes them hours to fix it, too.

Haven't used Hotmail for a couple of years now for reasons such as this. My Gmail always works. I have my own homepage and email also.

I have a hotmail, gmail, yahoo, and a University email account. I like my Uni's the best... gmail fucks up just as often as hotmail for me, and I don't like either layout. Yahoo is just pure shit.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for all my email accounts, so the user interface's don't effect me.

Same. But it never lets me send e-mails. I'd have to login to hotmail.

More to the point of the topic, I haven't had too many problems with hotmail, including today.

That sucks that you can't send emails from it - are you sure you've configured everything properly?

Probably not. I always get some error message about the STMP server or whatever. I explained it in the Computer Problems thread.

Wait, what's wrong with Yahoo? I've used it for years and I don't have a single complaint. Before that I used hotmail and that was pure shit.

The only webmail i've ever been impressed with is Gmail... fast, very little/no spam, pretty much unlimited space..

Yahoo and Hotmail are too cluttered for me, they're slow, and loaded with tons of spam.

And yeah, MSN is still being a bit of a bitch today.. had to try to connect a few times to get online.

That's exactly why I hate hotmail.

I get tons of spam there, it has the worst spam filter by far. The attachments system is crap. It runs slower for me than any of the others. I'm sure there's more, but I haven't opened the email program in a while and can't really remember what else.

Huh. That is odd. My spam filter works great, I like the way attachments work, and it always runs quickly and reliably for me.

She's a woman they can't work anything right.

I'm just comparing it to the other email services I use, especially my University email, which never has any spam at all, has a much faster and more logical attachment system, and loads instantly. Obviously we haven't used the same email services to compare it to, so our views on this are going to differ.
