    seems to be ok here... but you might be on a different server... maybe they're making one of those "wonderful" upgrades to the site...

    I don't like hotmail
    It's too slow for me
    Why not try Yahoo if you find hotmail is slow?

    Used to have a yahoo account. Was just ridiculous the amount of porn that flooded into my inbox, not so great when checking your e-mail in the university comp centre!! Had to abandon it and get a hotmail account.

    hotmail blows....it's slow, and it's 2MB limit is insane....i really love how that count your junk mail again you limit. if i leave my account unattended for more than a day or two, it becomes inactive because i'm over my limit. 90% of it is junk mail too...

    yahoo is the way to go...

    I've stopped using hotmail since you can no longer pop mail over unless you pay for your mail box. Heathen Bastards!

    Thanfully Y! let's me pop mail over for free.

    Mine was running slow the other day, but is okay now.

    I believe hotmail has like a 2mb storage limit, or 1mb, I dont use it much so im not sure. Get this, they introduced a junk mail folder, and that goes toward the limit of my storage. The junk mail folder was full, and due to that I was unable to receive emails.

    Weird, I found the exact opposite to be true... the hotmail mailbox gets full within 2 days, while I never get any spam in Yahoo! one.

    You mean Yahoo! ?

    I think not... A couple of months ago they made it a paid only option:
