We have tried pinging Windows Live Hotmail website using our server and the website returned the above results. If live.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Windows Live Hotmail - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as hotmail.com, login.live.com, mail.live.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I can log in to my Hotmail account, but it looks odd, and I can't open any of the emails since last night. I am also not getting any new mails forwarded to my phone. Are they even working on this problem? I'm seeing nothing when I google the situation.

I'm getting the following message:

"Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later."

I am able to access it via the Hotmail mobile app.

Can not sign in to Hotmail now for the 5th day to check my email. Keeps asking for security code but will not send one by email to any alternate email address. It just keeps looping around. There is absolutely NO help or contact online with this problem that I have been able to find so far. Super frustrated.

Unable to connect to email, no matter what I did. Keep asking for password verification. What happens, I really need to use the mail to send in the urgent message.

On sending with attachment(s) "Sending" takes longer than usual until finally prompting "Cannot connect to Homail. Please try again later". Dispite the prompt, when I check my "Sent" file the email & attachment(s) were successfully sent & received on the other end.

My live.com account is not working right, I sent myself an email from my outlook account... never got it, I even signed out and back in, still nothing... I sent an email from my live.com account to my outlook account and got it right away... BUT my live.com account said it could not be sent, and that if I left that screen my email would be gone for good. I have that email in my inbox of my outlook account?????? I know you say everything is up and running fine but I have tried to get several emails sent to me this morning and I am not getting them.... So something is not working right! I have logged into my live account from 2 different computers and my smart phone. What is UP?
