Hotmail and yahoo web based email

I have hotmail and yahoo email accounts., and recently I've been unable to log onto these using IE or NS, with the pages timing out after several minutes.

I tried checking my mail with my dial-up account, and I got in straight away!

I know they check user IP's, are there any issues with NAT and both these services?

Hotmail and yahoo web based email

The only time you will have issues with NAT, is when a remote system, needs to connect back to your, which standard websites like hotmail don't.

First off, are you able to get the launch screen at www.hotmail.com ??

If yes, does it fail when entering your details??

If so, then you may like to try disabling IDS (Intrusion Detection) off on your router and try again.

I've just checked both my yahoo and hotmail accounts - they're fine.

got it sorted, had a suspicion it was zonealarm blocking authentication, upgraded it, and now I’m in. :lol:

Thanks...
