    Anyone else having problems with hotmail?

    I haven't been able to check my email for over an hour. Since I do a ton of communication by email, it's killing my work day.

    Switch to gmail, you will thank me later.

    As for the hotmail, it is working fine for me. You trying to access it via web or mobile?

    You should ask for a refund credit on your next bill.

    I got it. Not sure what the deal was, but I cleared my browser cache, and it came right up.

    Re: Anyone else having problems with hotmail?

    People still use hotmail? Is it still 1998?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    If youre using it for business, sign up for google apps and get your own domain. Its like $10 a year for the domain, and you get the ability to set up google accounts through that domain, including gmail and almost everything else google offers.

    The reason I am still using this email account is mainly longevity. Everyone I know, both personally and professionally, uses it to contact me. Is there a way to roll over those emails to my new account, or do I have to contact everyone under the sun with my new email address?

    I have a separate email address for work, but it's linked to my hotmail account so that I only have to check one.

    I do have a gmail account that I never uses except when I want to sign into google analytics.

    Gmail is great. You can have all your Hotmail emails be fetched by Gmail. I have three separate email accounts that all dump into my Gmail, and have them color-coded and labeled to tell them all apart (Work, school, etc.)

    Just have your hotmail forward to gmail. You can also set up gmail to send messages 'from' your hotmail email address using gmail. Its really nice to be able to switch between sending email from work, school, and personal email addresses without changing your email client.

    Although, it gets interesting sometimes when I forget to change what email I send stuff from and my prof wonders who it is that sent the email.

    I make that same mistake. I wish they would fix this somehow, remembering who you email from which account, and making that the default.

    Gmail has an option to handle that. In the Setting on the Accounts tab select this:

    Reply from the same address the message was sent to

    After you have forwarding setup you just need to add the account as a sender. Do that in the Accounts tab also. Then the option should appear.
