MSN/Hotmail Down?

Hello - Is anyone else not able to access www.msn.com and www.hotmail.com today? Trying to identify whether microsoft is actually down or whether this is just me!

MSN/Hotmail Down?

Access seems fine from within the PN offices and also from my home connection, so don't think it's a site thing. In my experience this is usually an issue with either DNS (name resolution) or MTU size - if the former and you're on windows open a command prompt and run the following command:

ipconfig /flushdns


If that doesn't help then there's an excellent guide to configuring MTU size on kitz's website here:

Hope this helps, please let us know.
