    firstly, i know i'm in league with the devil, and i should use a different e mail provider, but, i'm knee deep etc...

    i try to log in to hotmail, but it loads for ages then says my connection's timed out
    i can access any other site, except (weirdly) myspace.

    what's up?
    not fire wall, and i can access it at my friend's house with my macbook.

    I assume you are using Safari, try it from Firefox.

    Just tried it from Firefox and got a box telling me that Hotmail was attempting to redirect me, and my firewall and cookie blocker might be preventing it. Or something like that. I'm not saying that's the problem, it's what the dialog box said was the problem.

    I was able to sign in through the MSN site. But it's been a long time since I used it.

    i cant get in with firefox or safari.
    i've deleted all my cookies, and can't get in via MSN either.
    i would think that my hotmail account had been hijacked or something, except that i can get in via other wireless networks such as my friend Dr. Beef and the local hotel.

    something is afoot.

    i currently on the trial of .mac
    but it seems a lot of money to pay for e mail
    think'll i'll try g mail as endorsed by the majority here.

    I had the same issue yesterday, it took ages to load hotmail, I can log in to the web mail with firefox no problem, it seems because I did not sign out hotmail and the safari wont automatically sign out cause the issue,

    reset safari from Safari menu works for me It should work once removing cookies. hope it helps.:)

    Since then I always remember to log out when closing emails, hotmail works fine in safari now, it is a bit annoying, so most time I use firefox.
