Hotmail down in Midwest : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Microsoft's is down in Minnesota. Is it screwed up in other places, too?

Ha! Hotmail's screwed up normally.

Where do you want to wait today?

I just checked, justa. It's ok here. Don't count on Hotmail for mission-critical... scratch that. Don't count on Hotmail for mission- anything. Consider it a flaky, non-secure, anonymous (although you must accept a barrage of cookies to enter) email account.

Its down here in my area too.No Calif. Man this has never happened before ,I hate not being able to get my messages.

Yes, in SoCal also. I don't know if it's related, but it appears they assigned someone else my "address" differing only by an initial upper case letter (e.g., vs Same last names on the accounts, but different first names. How I know is that I sometimes get e-mail but with the other guy's name. So, is he getting mine. Hopefully he's gettin all my spam. :-)

And, naturally, now that Hotmail has been taken over by Microsucks, there is no way to report unusual conditions to them.

That is, say my address is "" the other one is "". Looks like someone forgot that e-mail addresses should NOT be case sensitive.
