    hotmail problem (win2000 pro)

    hello one and all!

    is it just me or is anyone else having problems accessing their hotmail e-mail? i am having one heck of a time trying to get to my mail. i can manage to log in, and even might be able to open one e-mail, but then the whole thing locks up and the only way to get out of it is to hit CTRL-ALT-DEL to access TaskManager, and cancel out of it that way. thank heavens that they raised the limit to 250MB, else i'd be <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0>!

    some of the e-mails are very important to me, as they are for my budding business (rainbow beadworks), and i really need to get to them. others are the woody's newsletters, and i also want them. the junk is irrelevant, but i can't even get to it to delete it!

    does anyone have any ideas as to what to do about this? please? thanks for your help, as always. i look forward to hearing from all y'all soon. i hope that you enjoy the thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, if you celebrate it, and that you spend some time with those that you love the most and that love you in return. have a blessed holiday. until the next time, take care and God bless.

    Hi ladyleadfoot,
    I think the first thing I would do is to contact the "hotmail" people. I don't use ( or want to use hotmail ) so I can't really give you specifics here.
    Is that the only email account you have?

    Have a great turkey day and give thanks for all the things you DO have working for you on this day.
    Regards,
    BOB

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    It might also have to do with the time of the season and all the travelers trying to access their Hotmail accounts while on the road. I've noticed the net is a bit slower than usual today and expect the same through the holiday weekend. More people with more free time online. Not to mention the shoppers !!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    okay, bob, i'll give the hotmail people a holler, if i can find out how to contact them. no, it's not the only e-mail that i have. sometimes, i think that i have too many e-mail addresses.

    to doc watson, nope, it's not the number of people that are on-line because of the holiday, as i have been able to access hotmail from other computers, even the ones at the local library. in this case, it's strictly on my computer that i am having problems. i sure as heck can't contact the hotmail people from/via my e-mail, as the darned thing is now locking up on me as soon as i log on. i wanted to at least copy all my contacts and forward all the e-mails that i have there to another address, but i can't get at a darned thing! i guess i'll have to do it from another 'puter, then delete the accounts, and go somewhere else, which is very inconvenient.

    thanks to you both for your help and suggestions. i think i'll just go out and shoot something... <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    until the next time, take care and God bless.

    Have you emptied your TIF folder and deleted all your Hotmail and Passport cookies?
