MSN login problem solved

MSN login problem solved

Microsoft confirmed Friday that it fixed a glitch that caused brief outages for some of its MSN services. A company spokeswoman said the problems were resolved Thursday afternoon PST and that no complications have been reported since.



The problems began Thursday morning, when some users discovered that they were unable to log into popular services, such as Hotmail and MSN Messenger. The software giant denied that the glitch stemmed from its Passport authentication and password software, which lets people log in and manage Web services from MSN and other third-party sites.

Having problems signing in...

by InternetElf on Friday, July 20th 2007 at 02:28 AM

Can't login to Hotmail. Have a new laptop and running Vista Premium, IE 7.0.6 - now I had no problem logging into Hotmail over the past few weeks. Then a few days ago it was no go. Works fine with Mozilla Firefox, however. The message I am getting:
Windows Live ID is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons:
This site may be experiencing a problem.
The site may not be a member of Windows Live ID.
You can:
You can sign in or sign up at other Windows Live ID sites and services, or try again later at this site.

So, any advice?? Pretty frustrating.

Have a mac and can;t log in... this is a problem that happens TOO MUCH! Is there a fix????

by vincygirl on Thursday, October 2nd 2008 at 07:18 PM

Haven't been able to use my hotmail or msn account for over a month now. At first I couldn't log into Facebook or Hi5, but couple weeks back I was able to.

Tried entering my information in the forgot password screen, not accepting it. Reset my password, but instead of sending the reset link to my alternate email address it's sending it to the hotmail address.

I really need help, to at least get all my msn contacts.

After suffering over age limits with xbox live and eventually returning the xbox360 and the EA game I purchased I cannot log into my hotmail account or any of the live services. I get this error "Windows Live ID is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons"

by Pinky on Tuesday, March 24th 2009 at 05:46 AM

I am having difficulties signing in to my hotmail account too and get the same message as above. So much for hotmail fixing it. I have deleted my temp int files and my cookies but still no joy. It seems to be intermittent - surely there must be a fix for this?!

by WDW on Thursday, May 7th 2009 at 09:09 PM

I gave up trying to use hotmail on internet explorer - virtually every time it gave me the same message even though I'd updated all of my settings etc etc etc. Now I use google chrome and haven't experienced any of these issues - give it a try!

by safe4theplanet on Wednesday, July 15th 2009 at 09:58 PM

Same here. I really need to get into my emails! It's been over a month since I signed up and have only been able to get in twice. I've cleared cookies and cache, etc. etc. Still keep getting

Don't think it's working for Mac users anymore. Mine's the same. It says me login details are wrong when I've set them to automatically sign me in with the same details and it has worked fine up until now.

by pureplayed on Friday, November 27th 2009 at 12:53 AM

Same thing Thanksgiving Day 2009: "The Windows Live Network is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons..."

No luck from my PC or Mac.

It looks as if the home.live site is just unstable. Different .url's keep flashing and then finally that "unavailable" message. I guess we just have to wait until the lights come back on.

by Rich on Friday, November 27th 2009 at 05:32 PM

same things happening for me

and its my only email and the only way i can access msn , microsoft needs to fix their problems inside of giving us more add ons we dont need comon microsoft this is bs

by MinNJ on Tuesday, December 29th 2009 at 08:29 PM

Same here. I'm getting the error message for one ID, while the other lets me log in just fine. Fwiw, the non-working address contains an underscore. I cleared the cache, history, et al for both IE and Safari, and I ran CCleaner, but it still won't let me in. :-(

I am having this problem right now (6/24/2010).

When loggin in, I get the following error, but I asked a friend to login with his MSN account and he was able to log right in. Clearly the issue is maibox related and not Network or server related as stated in the message at hotmail.com.

by DC on Saturday, November 13th 2010 at 05:17 PM

I'm having the same problem - can't sign into Hotmail using IE 8 or 9beta on my PC, but no problem using Google Chrome on the same PC, or using IE on another PC. Does anyone know how to fix this without reinstalling the Windows 7?

by DC on Saturday, November 13th 2010 at 05:26 PM

I found this solution on a Microsoft support site: If you have any live.com or hotmail.com URLs in your IE "Trusted Sites" list, remove them! Removing them solved the problem for me.

by MM on Wednesday, December 1st 2010 at 02:02 PM

Any idea how to fix the error when one login works and the other doesn't? That can't be a trusted site issue, I wouldn't think. I've tried on multiple computers, too. Also, when this happenes, how long is the service usually out? Days? Weeks?
