I have had problems with sending and receiving emails via hotmail. Some outgoing messages are taking up to 24 hrs to, Now I cant access my inbox. I have talked to MSN three times and this morning they finally admitted that there is a problem. I have had to switch to an alternate address outside of hotmail.
all that MSN would say is that they are working on the problem.
my name is evans a college student and have documents in my account. but since last week, i cannot get into my account to submit my home works to my professors. eventhough, incase of anything, i was experting your company to give me ahead notice of cancellation of my account..
i will be very glad if u give me like 2 to 3 days to copy all my work into my school e-mail so that i can submit my work to my professors.. my e-mail account was firstname.lastname@example.org , password is *******.. hope to hear from you through my sch e-mail at email@example.com u can also call me 201 *** **** (cell).
1) NEVER EVER post your password, phone number, or any personal information in a public forum such as this one. ANYONE can see it. (I've editted the information out of your post.)
2) I am not HotMail, and I am not Microsoft. I *cannot* get you your account back or help you gaining access to it. You need to follow the instructions in the article at the top of the page and contact HotMail Customer Service yourself.
Looks like I'm not the only one who has had lots of Hotmail problems recently. Last week almost impossible to coordinate flight/travel plans. Finally just used the phone.
Just wondered if anyone has seen the additional storage promised months ago? I know they're holding out hoping everyone will "upgrade" and pay, but they should be noticing the exodus to Gmail and Yahoo by now??
What could be done when a wonderfully working Hotmail reports "Page cannot be displayed" ! My friends account works well from my pc. I tried all possibility - Firewall, settings, cookies, registry - so much so I am unable to open my inbox form any computer ! Wierd !
I too have been battling the "page cannot be displayed" problem since early Friday morning.
Add your Hotmail account in Outlook Express (Tools, Accounts, Mail tab, Add-->Mail). Go through the wizard, and make sure you choose "HTTP" as the incoming mail server and "Hotmail" as the HTTP mail service provider on the Email Server Names screen. This has allowed me to download my messages from Hotmail.
I did most of my conversion to Yahoo mail yesterday. Now I will be able to finish it up. :) You may want to consider switching as well! ~mmm
Apparently a lot of people are having trouble. I've posted this article with a little more information: http://ask-leo.com/why_cant_i_access_hotmail.html
I thought I was the only one facing such problems coz all my other friends seem to be able to access their accounts. I have posted my problem to hotmail support everyday since it started but to no avail. The only solution i found so far was accessing the account throught WAP on the mobile. I surprisingly got through my account and was able to read all my emails.
I spoke to a customer service rep, and he said that some of their servers were down for upgrades and wasn't sure when they'd be back up and running. My email has been down since Sept 17th, but my other hotmail address opens up just fine. He suggested to open the emails through Outlook, which I don't have on my imac. Sigh.... I guess I'll just have to wait....
Could someone please be willing to explain how to use Outlook Express, and where they downloaded it from. I've not been successful in locating how to set up OE e-mail to retrieve my elusive Hotmail e-mail. Thanks. Elk Hollow
