    Can anyone login to their hotmail account without issues? I can login and get to the e-mails, but the website doesn't display properly and won't even allow me to check the e-mails, switch between the different email pages...

    I haven't checked my e-mail in a long time, so not sure if it's something brief, or if it has been happening for a while...

    -edit-

    I'm using Chromium by the way. I'll download a new build and see if it works better (if that's the issue).

    Well Hotmail and Hotmail :D

    As much as I would like to use Hotmail even if I click "Switch back to Hotmail" MS is still forcing me to use Outlook. So I have stopped switching back. :p

    The reason I want Hotmail a little longer, is Outlook works so damn slow in IE8 that it's almost impossible to use. I haven't tried Outlook with my main browser Safari since Safari didn't work great with Hotmail before. :doubt:

    I don't know about Hotmail. Outlook works nice here. Initially its new login layout was a bit problematic with LastPass, but these issues were fixed.

    Works fine here as well, with Chrome.
    The only small problem is that sometimes I need to refresh a few times to get my aliases showing up when composing a new email.

    I downloaded a new Chromium build, but I still cannot properly see the Hotmail account page, and therefore still can't even check the e-mails. Not sure if it's an issue with Chromium or maybe Hotmail isn't working properly with Chromium itself. No idea. I even started with a new Chromium profile, but didn't help.

    I can access my Outlook account just fine. It's just Hotmail that's giving me headaches. :argh:

    Considering that one of you mentioned that it loads fine in Google Chrome, I'm going to download it and see if I can access it properly there.

    I'll report later.


    Thank you! :)

    I had issues with connecting to outlook.com for about one hour this afternoon. It's OK again however :)

    I still haven't tried with Google Chrome, but moments ago I mistakenly logged into my Outlook account profile (through Chromium) using the Hotmail credentials, and I logged in just fine. I didn't know it was possible to access Hotmail through the Outlook page. :D

    I didn't try to access it through the Hotmail Chromium profile, though. I'm going to bed. :D

    Anyway, I can access it through Outlook page, and that's fine for now. :)

    That is because Microsoft replaces Hotmail with Outlook (dot com)
