Hotmail access error

Does anyone know why I keep getting the following error when trying to access Hotmail?

Under Construction

I thought it was a Firefox issue, but I get it with I.E. If I do manage to access from I.E. I paste the URL into Firefox`s favourites and it works, maybe a couple of times, but I get the error again. It even comes up if I click on the Hotmail link in MSN`s site (?) Odd. I notice I`m not the only one, as various forums are reporting it, but without any solution.

I've just logged into click here but then found that the URL changed to click here

You may like to try storing the latter URL as a Favourite. I've no idea why this is happening. Has anyone tried contacting Hotmail?

Yes, I`ve been there, done that! I`ve logged in to "Hotmail today" from your second URL after entering my details and ticking "save e-mail and password", replaced it in favourites and also deleted my current entry in my links, replacing it from the bookmark. Seems to work a few times and then reverts to the previous "under construction error". But why, oh why does it do the same trick from the Hotmail Link in the MSN site, though? Surely we don`t have to go through the signing on process every time now. Isn`t that the idea of cookies?
