    What happens when you try a different browser?

    It is because hotmail was updated to something like windows live or something. It is not compatible with safari, but it will work fine in firefox.

    it doesnt work in my safari either, but when I switch user agents to Firefox 2.0.0.2 it loads up (after I get the message, "if this takes too long switch back to classic view" and I click the link)

    here is how to enable the debug menu if you dont have it, that is where you can switch user agents...

    Ya it works on my firefox. That's really stupid though that it won't work on safari. Any expected fix? What's all this talk about "debug"? sorry I'm kind of a n00b

    Is hotmail worth the hassle? I'd ditch it for gmail or whatever.

    Sometimes I get an error that I cannot log in. I click the link from Messenger and it just loops in Safari and finally saying that there is an error. Time usually heals this. Or just logging in under my Windows partition.

    It's annoying though. Very.

    It works fine for me in Safari. For me, it works when I access Hotmail through "My MSM". I clicked on sign up for Windows Live and since then I am able to open Hotmail on Safari. MC

    The HTTPMail plugin for Mail is working with Leopard now, so you could just use that if your Hotmail account supports it.

    Fix

    The above link show how to delete cookies from safari, but you dont have to delete all the cookies, just search for "live" and "msn" and delete those, thats it.

    When I try the url changes every second for a while then:

    Windows Live ID is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons:
    This site may be experiencing a problem.
    The site may not be a member of Windows Live ID.
