    Anyone else having hotmail problems?

    I haven't been able to access hotmail.com at home (PC) or at work (Mac)

    Anyone else having troubles?

    MSN's servers were down for a while this afternoon. Couldn't get into MSN Messenger, either. Problem seems to be fixed now.

    Other than Hotmail/Microsoft's usual inability to recognize spam when it sees it? Then no logging-in problems.

    I don't know anyone who uses hotmail anymore ... it's not a diss, just when i saw this thread I realized I knew no one.

    Had Hotmail ever since my family stopped using CompuServe in the mid-'90s. Love it.

    It was an early afternoon problem, I think.

    I have hotmail, but it's the one I use to sign up for things. My personal e-mail is a gmail account.

    This is slightly off topic, but I don't know why anyone would use Hotmail instead of Gmail.

    What's Gmail got that Hotmail doesn't?

    Let's see:
    • Vastly superior spam filters.

    Actually, that alone should be enough to sell anybody on the superiority of Gmail (or for that matter, almost anything) over Hotmail, which has never seen a spam mail it didn't find unworthy of passing on to the account-holder. Just truly wretched spam "filtering" unless you use the most restrictive spam filter setting to tell Hotmail to only pass on messages from those in your address book.

    • No tagline on the end of messages --- looks hella more professional than the ads Yahoo and Hotmail stick on the end. I can use my Gmail account for work, but I wouldn't dream of doing that with Yahoo or Hotmail just because I can't guarantee what's tagged on the end of my e-mail.
    • Free POP access for e-mail programs --- webmail is not the best way to check e-mail. With Post Office Protocol, I don't have to see any ads at all. :) And if I were using a laptop, I could download my e-mail with Eudora or Mozilla Thunderbird, then take the computer to the beach and read it.
    • Hotmail is ... um ... slightly tardy in delivering e-mail after I hit "send." No such problems with Gmail.
