Problem with Hotmail

  pj123 19:43 05 Jul 2006

A neighbour across the road has just bought a secondhand laptop, P3 850, 256mb Ram, 20gb hard drive, modem, USB, Win 2000, CD Rewriter.

All working fine. Doesn’t want to go for Broadband at the moment so I used a generic phone number to connect to the internet. No problem there. Have set up a Hotmail email account which also worked fine at the time.

I have sent her 3 test emails all of which have been delivered but I have had no response to any of them. She told me today that she cannot access Hotmail any more.

I checked it out and when logging in to her Hotmail email account (user id and password) all she gets is http:// bay15d. bay15. /cgi-bin/ hmhome?fti=yes&curmbox= f000000001&a= 9030b00da709red28a 782ab292adie9508

Spaces deliberate.

Nothing else happens. Tried logging in to her account on my PC and everything works fine. I can see the 3 emails I have sent her.

Just been and set her up with a Tiscali PAYG email account. That is working fine.

Is there something wrong with Hotmail?

Hotmail has for me at least been awful these last few days, the only way I can log on to email is to go to msn homepage dont know if this is relevent but I have a lot of problems logging on.

ps.I have been getting 404 error message ?

My son had similar problems and they were resolved by checking-tools-internet options-privacy-sites. Having hit the clear all button, access to Hotmail came back. The restricted sites reset themselves after a restart. This may help, worth a try though.

woodchip, fone number is 08451 121212. Use any ID (fred bloggs) and any password (123456). No account needed. I use this number to test dial up modems.

Thanks VoG™ will give that a try, if we can access the address bar.

Not really resolved yet but she is happy with Tiscali PAYG for the moment.

Will give it another try when she decides to go Broadband.

Will tick now anyway.
