Well, then, at least it isn't just me. (curls up in email withdrawal spasms.)

Just spoke to MS, they say it was a minor outage that got compounded and they estimate 2-4 hours of downtime.

Strangely from the IMAP(ish) version that I can get in Entourage/Outlook Express, I can send but can't seem to receive. I can't login through a browser, and it seems to be related to passport being down.

Actually, I take that back. When I go to MSN, and click on their hotmail link in the left nav, it dumps me right into my account. I'm not sure if that is using a different address or what.

Also, I did recieve my test message through Entrouage. it's just it was in the junk folder where I wasn't looking.

MSN and Hotmail outages reported.

They told me that it's actually Passport that's down, so if you were already logged in or whatever, hotmail is still technically up, etc. But logins are disabled.
