    like many others, i am unable to connect to hotmail by
    going to www.hotmail.com. i get a timed out error. when i
    try logging into MSN, i get an error as well.

    i think the problems started when i installed the new
    version of MSN Messenger - version 6.2. I've uninstalled it
    but am still having the same problem.

    any help would be appreciated.

  2. Greetings Eimber,

    Just to check to see exactly what the problem is, try going to the following site:
    https://www.amazon.com

    If that works, try going to http://www.passport.net and clicking "Sign In" at the top.

    However, for the record, Messenger in of itself wouldn't (shouldn't) cause these issues.

    hi jonathan!

    thanks for responding so quickly.

    i can get to amazon.com. i can get to passport.net and log
    in just fine...but how do i access my hotmail account? that
    is what i am having trouble doing.

    i think it may have something to do with msn messenger b/c
    the problems started when i downloaded the new version.
    also, i've found many other people with the same problems
    on other forum sites.

    i've even tried to access my hotmail account via outlook
    express, but i am getting a timed out error.

    if you can't help, can you refer me to a site like this one
    for hotmail accounts?

    i appreciate it!

  4. Hi Erika,

    There's no specific (English) Hotmail forum/newsgroup at this point, so besides the other MSN
    group, this is best there is at this point.

    Since you're able to get Amazon and login at Passport it sounds like you're able to at least
    get to secure sites (which Hotmail and Messenger rely on to log you in). Just for pure
    testing purposes, try making a new Hotmail account at Hotmail.com and see if you can login
    using that.

    Hi again, Jonathan,

    I already have another HOTMAIL account that I created under
    the Australian MSN site a few years back:
    http://nine.msn.com. I can login and access this account
    just fine.....the saga continues!!!

    what do you think?

    Hi Jonathan!

    The problem seems to have somehow been resolved. I am able
    to log in again. I will check back if I experience similar
    problems. I appreciate your help!

    Have a great day!

  7. Hi Erika,

    Just for interest sake, after you login to Hotmail check to see how much space you now have--
    they have been upgrading accounts to 250MB (so perhaps your
    account was under maintenance).
