I don't know if its just my account (that I presume has been hacked) but I thought I would ask here if anyone else has experienced problems accessing their hotmail.co.uk accounts this week?
Even when trying to change my password its telling me this is not possible at this time!!!!

I have a .com account and it was hacked recently. Despite following all the sensible security measures, I now get lots of spam and am planning to close it. Two of my friends have reported problems with their Hotmail accounts of late - mail not delivered etc. Not sure which type they have.

I've just tried access my .com hotmail account and am not able to access it. All that happens is that the sign in screen reappears with blank fields. It was fine yesterday.

Never had this happen before. Does anyone know what I need to do to regain access (if it's been hacked)?

I don't use Hotmail myself but the service status page indicates that it's currently down:

Mine's back up again. I guess Hotmail is just being a bit flaky at the moment... :unsure:

I had a hotmail account untill a couple of years ago and had to close it because it was sending out automated spam. The frightening thing is that even though the account didn't exist anymore the spamming continued. I've swapped over to gmail which is a much better operator and haven't had any problems with hacking or spamming.
