Over on the Windows Live Solution Center
, a number of Windows Live Hotmail users have been complaining about missing e-mails. For the last three days, users have reported that their e-mails have been deleted from their Inbox and other folders or that e-mails sent to them never arrived. Microsoft has since fixed the problem, after declaring that the issue was not widespread.
Yesterday, Microsoft offered the following statement: "We have identified the source of the issue [and] have restored e-mail access to those who were [a]ffected. We recognize that even though we restored email access, some of the affected users did not receive mail sent to them during the last 24-72 hours. We are in the process of rectifying that and should be finished by late tonight Pacific time."
