    Allof a sudden my hotmail wont work as well as MSN messenger. I cant load either and then MSN says password is wrong. Does any other Mac user have the same issue or could something be wrong with my computer? IM running a G4 iBook with Panther....
    I updated to 10.4.6 yesterday could that have something to do with it?

    A quick way to find whether it is your computer or not is to try login in on a different computer. If it still doesn't work then it probably has to do with your password.

    If it works on a different computer then the other Macrumor members will be able to help I'm sure.

    Do you have the latest version of MSN Messenger:Mac? 5.1 is the newest release which added 10.4.5 (and probably 10.4.6) compatibility updates along with a more stable connection.

    Who knows when 6.0 will be out. :rolleyes:

    I hate to be a smart ass... but are you typing your password in manually, or using keychain? If the latter, did you try typing in your password manually? When *was* the last time, if ever, that it changed?
