just lost all contact with Hotmail and MSN messenger.
http://www.msn.com is still there, as is anything else I have looked for.
Just can't sign into any Microsoft Passport stuff, or get to Hotmail.
The DIY bit?
I just installed an RJ11 extension for my ADSL link and tested it.
I would like to know that it is MSN which is down, not something silly I've
done to my router by unplugging and replugging.
is ok for me - messenger working fine. through trillian, mind, but that's
normally the first thing to stop workingwhen M$ change things!
email me at
richard at olifant d-ot co do-t uk
Ah! Oh! er......
Presumably something checks my Nildram IP address and decides I should use
the 'co.uk' domain?
Everything was working fine this morning.
I tried using 'nslookup' on http://messenger.msn.com and got
http://18.104.22.168/ but I can't connect to this either.
If this is a UK thing and not just some Nildram strange happening then there
are going to be some unhappy punters for the next couple of days.
Anyway, as I can talk to you the wiring etc. seems O.K.
Never simple, is it?
Yep - horribly slow but I can get on that way.
Still no MSN messenger etc.
Still no HTTP connection from OE to send/receive Hotmail mail.
No doubt it will be sorted sometime.
MSN has been up and down like a yo-yo today. (Tell me something new!)
On my system, MailWasher checks my POP and Hotmail accounts for new mail
every 15 minutes - and in the past few hours it has failed to connect to
Hotmail about 50% of the time.
If normal browsing and POP-based email work ok (and, of course, NewsGroup
access!), I guess your router is ok - and that it's just the usual MSN
