MS will always change their ways, whether it's beneficial to us common users is another thing.

Yes, that works. But only today is the first time I've noticed that(when i write Hotmail.com not redirected to anywhere). I thought the address was no longer available.

But now I see all this normal... for now... MUAHAHAHAHA
Oddly enough, a person that I support also had this problem today.
They are still not being redirected from hotmail.com to live.com.
Interesting. When I wrote the post, I still had some problems to go to live.com
It's working, we'll see if it stays that way.

It have fixed this problem that person ?

I changed each bookmark that pointed to hotmail.com to point to https://mail.live.com instead.

That link came up just fine :-)


Hotmail.com never stopped redirecting for me and I tested it on 4 different ISPs. It seemed to be a temporary DNS thing. For the person that I support, they were not able to get to the hotmail.com website to be redirected. That sounds like what you were seeing too.

There are times that is normal I can open multiple tabs with hotmail.com smoothly. But there are times that no does not work.

I will be monitoring this

Periodically hotmail.com is quirky. It usually clears up in a few hours or a day at most. I've had accounts there prior to MS acquiring it. It always comes back.

But as I saw not redirected to live.com, these two possibilities were : traffic or was disabled. Discard the traffic because it had never happened, as far as I know.

I just tried it at 2253Z, Jan 25 and it worked OK. Lots of Viagra ads to delete.
