Windows Live ID services down?

Recommended Posts

Admodieus    4

Can anybody log into anything related to their Windows Live ID? Windows Live Messenger won't sign in, and Mail won't authenticate during a send/receive. Xbox.com and social.zune.net seem slow and unresponsive as well.

Same issue here. I've tried logging into multiple Live services and all give up, give a script error, or don't connect at all.

Yup, cant log into Messenger, first my messages weren't being sent and then it just logged me off entirely and I haven't been able to get on since.

I'm getting the exact same problems on the entire Live service. I was having a really important conversation with a client while all of a sudden MSN just signs me out. Hopefully it happened on their side as well so I don't look like some sort of rude prick :D

This is making me consider cancelling my paid hotmail service, I rely on having access to my email all the time.

You could try having it auto-forward mail to a gmail account, say. Assuming the mail servers didn't die, then that would work for this little blip.

Plus, you can set up that gmail account to send as your hotmail's address.

Everything has been fine and dandy for me though.

This is just great. I'm expecting important email and it's all going to my @live.com.au account.

I'm going back to my ISP based email system after this all clears up.

Grrr. Multi-Billion dollar company, redundant links, clustered servers and this happens.

Fricken dr-evil.jpg ridiculous.
