Troubleshooting Tips

Use these guidelines to help narrow down the cause of a service issue.

  • Can you reproduce the problem by repeating the same steps? If not, it may have been a temporary glitch.
  • If you're having trouble accessing a certain web site, make sure there isn't a problem with your Internet connection. Can you reach other web sites successfully?
  • Does the same issue appear if you use a different device or Internet connection?
  • Have you recently changed any settings or installed web browser plug-ins, firewall software, or other upgrades that might be causing trouble?

If you've ruled out these other possibilities and suspect a problem with Windows Live Hotmail, report it here to spread the word!
