The address: hotmail.com, no longer available?

Hi all, Today I have noticed something different when i want to enter see my email. Always to check my emails, I open a tab and write the address: hotmail.com which sends me to live.com where I enter my email and password.

What is happening now is that when I type hotmail.com not change anything. In the title bar say the classic message "internet explorer can not display the web page". Perhaps because the web is saturated or the old email address is no more available.

I do not know if im the only one who can't go to mail page through the classic address hotmail.com,
you can?


EDIT 1 : Maybe it's the traffic, because if I sometimes get redirected to live.com.

It was probably just busy.

Why not just type in live.com?

I still type hotmail.com - but I've not had the redirect fail yet.
When it does, I'll try and change my habits too :-)

I sure wish MS would pick a name and stick with it...
...but I'm not going to hold my breath while waiting for MS to change their silly ways.

It's bad enough that MS chooses names that are so similar but then try to educate posters here! I can't tell you how many times I've waded thru several pages of a thread just to discover that they were posting about a different email client than the one I thought. WinMail vs. WLM & WEMail vs. WLM are some that have been confusing.

Hotmail.com should redirect to live.com. MS changed it several months ago to Outlook, so it looks like Win8 stuff. Type in either one.

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.

Probably a wise idea not holding yer breath on this one; mainly cause he** could freeze over before MS changes some of their ways lol
