    I haven't had any trouble with it this morning but in the past Safari has given me some strange trouble. Try quitting your browser completely than reopening. That resolved any issues I'd had before (though oddly enough I didn't have any today where i usually do...)

    microsoft rules all and you.

    just checked... another 73 chances to fix my colon, save on car insurance, take online classes or just buy a degree, and several that i can't type for fear of being banned.

    seems to be working as well as ever. :rolleyes:

    Ever since I upgraded Safari, I have been unable to connect to hotmail via Safari. Works great with firefox.

    Not sure why that is?

    Apple wants you to use .Mac (or Mobile me or whatever it is now), not crappy Microsoft e-mail!

    Seriously here though, they said they fixed a bug with secure pages in 10.5.4, and perhaps in doing this they caused the problem?

    Hotmail seems to be working for me. I only use it because of Messenger. No mail to the account at all.

    Hmm...Its worked fine all day for me.

    What are you using for a browser? Safari hates hotmail, FireFox will tolerate it... ;) :)

    Well, I don't know what to tell you then... (OK, yes I do, FF3 ;))

    Safari>Hotmail is like Oil>Water, they just don't mix...

    Its well documented that Safari sends Hotmail into the infinite loop at page load...

    You can load hotmail in safari just fine, you sometimes just need to login at https://login.live.com/ first and then go to hotmail like normal.
