Well, I can access Windows Live Messenger and Hotmail again, so hopefully they've solved whatever the heck was wrong.
I'm going to make the most of my time with Hotmail as I can, just in case.
EDIT: As expected, it didn't last that long until I lost the ability to get into Hotmail and MSN Messenger.
Prob not right forum to post on, but after quick reply.
Cannot connect to Hotmail going through my BT connection, even with mobile phone using wi fi.
However connecting phone to T-Mobiles 3G network - this allows me to check my hotmail account.
Have BT put a block on Hotmail?
EDIT sorry just checked in correct forum! and seen the thread there!
Thanks for quick reply - have edited post to indicate that there is a thread in another Broadband thread.
There does appear to be a problem with some BT links.
Expecting an important email and only way to check my hotmail is via my mobile and the 3G connection.
A trace route shows a problem somewhere in the US a step before the MS portal.
There is also problems with windows live which most likely goes though the same route.
Bit of an odd 1 (wonderig if anybody can check) Noticed last night that hotmail/messenger stopped working. (Just standard BT Broadband and no infinity) Still not working as of this morning. I've checked it on a NON BT connection and it's connecting fine
