Has anyone else had problems geting onto Hotmail? I've been trying for three days without success.

I've had no problems getting in, but i haven't been receiving mail properly. A couple of my mates have sent me mail recently and I haven't received it, but other pieces of mail they sent me have got through.

Had trouble getting in yesterday - hanging between log-in and mailbox - but seems better today.I only use it for junk and PCA[no implication there!]so I wasn't too bothered.

I have had no trouble, but my girlfriend sent some emails Sunday and they didn't get through, we thuoght it was just busy, not so apparently.

No problems here...unless you count the large amount of unwanted mail!

Yes, I've got Mailwasher set to intercept my Hotmail account (all the other accounts go directly into Outlook Express).

For several days now, Mailwasher often hangs for several hours while trying to log in to my Hotmail account.

Could it be that Hotmail is finally drowning in the spam? It said recently that 80% of its throughput is spam.

I use it for the same purpose but i would like to be able to use it.

I find, with Mailwasher, that whenever it tells me it can't bounce email as the sender has no account, it is from a Hotmail account. How do they do that?
