From Mess.be

timothy says:

It "only" took 3 days to be fixed. But unfortunately you can not register any live.com or other live mailboxes anymore.

The buzz it generated was quite worth it, as it was even noticed by C|Net's news.com site. - http://news.com.com/2100-1032_3-6134643.ht...0&subj=news

For all those who have missed the opportunity to register one of these new mail accounts; some research on other Microsoft pages keeps our hope up you will be able to register accounts again in the near feature.

Got mine in the time :>

For those that missed it, I think it's going to be a long wait until the floodgate officially opens. I think CNET expect that to happen in 2007.

An id I was looking for is taken already but when i send mail to it, it failed.

Its been 3 days. If anyone got that id, he should have activated it by now. What could be wrong?

when you signup for omgbbq@live.com id, the confirmation mail is sent IN omgbbq@live.com inbox, When you signin at omgbbq@live.com you should first confirm it, then your mail is created for real ( i guess they create userspace and allow mails to arrive at box etc).

so you created the ID ? or never created the ID but signup page gives error now? or you created the ID but never signed i or clicked confirmation URL and cant send email to it? or what? :|

Microsoft have patched a loophole in the Windows Live Signup program that allowed users to register any iteration of live.<countrytld>, e.g. live.co.uk, live.com etc. Now only live.nl is allowed as this is the only country where Windows Live Mail is currently available.

Congratulations to those who managed to secure their early-bird name@live.com address, comiserations to those who missed out... you'll have to wait for the world-wide launch of Windows Live Mail!

why are you glad that you did not choose @live.com ? Those who choose are winners and those who cannot get it now hav to wait till MS allows.

That's why. ;) Not entirely sure if access is only allowed to @live.nl IDs or also @live.com IDs as long as they're being used through live.nl, but cool nonetheless.

I can still use my @live.com id , just did test mail to gmail... so its not that microsoft have taken down services for @live.com and only allowed @live.nl

so the peeps who choose @live.com are lucky (like me ) and thats why i wonder why do you feel glad that you didnt choose @live.com id when MS did not block the loophole.

OMG. Weird, I was at school today, and tried to send an email to one of my @live.com accounts. Ended up getting an error message saying 'mx4.hotmail.com' rejected[..] etc. Or something along those lines : /

Had a few problems getting into my mail last night, but that also affected my hotmail.com account. live.com emails work without a problem.
