Windows live mail is rubbish!

seriously, this has happened twice in a couple of weeks now, why all the sudden? I should really change to Gmail but would really be a hassle. Anybody recommended anything?

I've linked my Hotmail account to Microsoft Outlook and also to my Sky mail system, so I've no need to run Live Mail as a separate entity.

That said, I've never seen the message you posted - most strange.

I've tried using Hotmail on the web, from Thunderbird, from my iPhone, and can't retrieve any email. Annoying because i need to conform an account via email.

Hotmail uses a web-based protocol different from pop3 or imap. So your best bet is to use the web interface directly or have Hotmail forward all your mail to some other account that provides pop3 or imap access that works with Thunderbird. Or you could use Windows Live Mail (the program) instead of Thunderbird to retrieve all your mail since WLM can access Hotmail directly in addition to the normal pop3 and imap.
