Anyone else having problems with Hotmail lately? Most days for the first half hour or so after I log in I keep getting this big yellow warning message saying "We're doing some maintenance to improve the service. We apologize for getting in your way. Please try again in a few minutes. If it's been more than an hour, tell us you're still waiting". It happens whenever I try to go between different folders or open a new e-mail. So annyoing.

Yep SSF. It's the same with me. Or "please log in again". Really annoying O:|

It only happens in the morning though - weird. The first day I thought fair enough they might be doing maintenance but its going on about a week now. Hope its not a sign of anything dodgy.

Hey SSF i have also had probs recently...a few times it knocked me out to the sign in button again - other times it was ages laoding things or saying to be patient etc with work...I was a bit worried too as i do a bit of on line shopping and had thought maybe i had a virus or something. Also Hubby uses hotmail too and he went into his in box last week and had 14 delivery failure receipts so mails that he didnt sent and I continuosuly get emails from my sister in laws a/c offering me electrical goods etc etc also spam levels have gotten a lot higher...i never used to get much spam but i've been offered viagra about 10 times this week haha

My account was hacked earlier this year and everyone in my address book got an e-mail "from me" recommending this Chinese website selling cheap electronics. I changed my password and haven't had that kind of trouble since but this constant "maintenance" is a bit troubling. I don't get huge amounts of junk though - maybe ten a day.

My friends where getting dodgy emails from my hotmail account but all stopped once I updated my password!! SSF I haven't had any hotmail problems recently???

My account has been fine, but H2B keeps getting the same maintenance message, he couldn't get into his account for a few day last week. Seems to be ok now though

Hey guys just bumping this thread up again as I have been having such bad probs with my hotmail again over the last few weeks. Basically if i want to reply or forward an email - i do the usual of opening the message and click on reply or forward - once i put in whatever i need to,i click on send....my mail comes up as being sent -all fine so far - then fast forward a few days and i begin to wonder why the person hasn't replied to my email only to find out that the mail hasn't actually sent and isnt showing in my sent box - i have to then go back in and create a new message to make sure it definitely goes to the person. Hubby emailed someone on monday about something important and by tues evening he was freaking that he hadn't heard back so we were talking and i mentioned the problems i was having with hotmail sent items so lo and behold he checked his sent box and there was no sign of the mail he'd sent - we have both changed our passwords recently too but this is stil l happening - I have had my hotmail a/c for nearly 15 yrs i think and the only reason i have not changed is that so many people have that email address and I'd like to keep it open...any one else having these sent item problems?
