No problems with mine. I guess it's either your browser settings that's blocking it those sites.

OK Thanks, Don't know what went on then! It signed me out saying my session had expired and then wouldn't let me back in!
Maybe I upset them!
Semms OK this morning

"Spam"....yes there's a new approach isn't there.......telling us there's an undelivered email and signed by a realistic sounding Google "employee".....Oh! and the fact that 14 million people have viewed my Linkedin profile........'**** amazing when I haven't got one!
What's anyone else getting???

It's arriving by the shedload lately, of which about 6 a day are phishing or scams - in the guise of blocked purchases, blocked accounts, abnormal purchase alerts, purchase queries, unusual activity 'info', etc etc.

Spelling and grammatical errors in most...
Sender's e-mail address obviously suspicious...
Almost always an attachment to open/click on.
Don't!

Me too. The latest the past few weeks is saying that someone has tried to sign into my gmail account. I have had the hotmail address since it first came out but a few years ago I have had most personal stuff on a gmail account and not had one spam mail. I still use the hotmail for some internet shopping but probably averaging over 25 spam mails every day.

Didnt realise people still use hotmail. Thought it went out with msn messenger etc! A decent mail provider should always provide a good spam filter.they shouldnt be reaching your inbox

I have the same problem. I find it all over the place now. I do not know what is going on at all with Hotmail but it has gone slightly pear shape. It does that to me often. I can get back in again however and have never been blocked, but like you I am typing an email and then a message says that I have gone over the time. :thumbdown:

Also I find their drafts ridiculous. You have to click on the pencil to carry on writing the email and you go into a completely new box which leaves you with the email you were editing behind the new "edit". :wtf:

Hotmail is falling to bits. :?
