SOMETIMES WEB BROWSER PROBLEM ~ I think yours was browser problem. I don't know which browser you're using, because previously me too sometimes having problem like what you have encountered. That is why, now I use three (3) browsers at one time; MF, IE and Avant. OK ~ if you're using MF try to "allow" www.hotmail.com in your cookies "exceptions". Normally, it will works for you. I've done this before. BY COMPARISON As an example to my solution once found any site that I am surfing found slow or troublesome on MF, I will switch it by using IE and if found similar case next I switch to Avant. If these three (3) having the same problem, I will perform my internet speed test ( http://www.izzi.com.my/speedtest/ ). If found below 500/250 kbps reading on downloading and uploading, respectively; meaning that my internet speed caused the trouble. MY EXPERIENCE Many times it happened to myLot site while I am on myLotting activity, found MF slow responding I change it to Avant browser. Normally, it works. Unless, all of them found slow in downloading and uploading ~ what else, I butts off from my computer.

I primarily use firefox but when logging through msn messenger when checking mail it pops with IE when checking mail.

I have had this problem numerous times, there are days where I will have to wait 12-24hrs to access my account, this is due to a high volume of users logging into their email accounts and messengers at once.

Yes that might be right that it is caused by high traffic. But given the popularity of hotmail one wouldn't like this to happen. They should find a solution for this.

I have also seen a message "Server too busy" a few days ago. never saw such a message from hotmail before. the hotmail must have been doing big changes to the system, upgradation , etc that might had made thier system to go down

I haven't used hotmail in a long time. I would try it on another browser and see if it makes a difference. Good luck!
