So I'm trying to log in to check my hotmail account, and I get an error telling me that cookies must be enabled. They are. Just for grins, I changed my security settings to low and tried it -- still nothing. I added and to sites where cookies are always allowed. Nothing.

I've contacted their help, but am curious if anyone else is having this trouble.


PS - "Hotmail" isn't in the spelling dictionary.

Works for me, in both IE and Firefox.

I've had similar troubles with sites like that.
I think I had to start from scratch for the site. Delete ANYTHING that could have possibly been related from the blocked/allowed cookies bit and start again.
One site kept throwing me in circles until I allowed cookies from their ad placements or something retarded like that.
Also, if you have a firewall,google bar, whatever, check those settings as well as your browser

It must not like me -- it just happened to me here at work. Different version of Windows, different version of IE, same sudden result.

At least here I could understand some settings getting globally changed. Not sure about home, though.

I had similar problems too. I'm pretty sure when it happened to me I had to re-install IE. I'd give it a try.

Apparently, there's a new user agreement in effect now (at least, that's where it sent me when I tried logging into Hotmail this afternoon) ... Does this spell the end of free email from Microsoft, me wonders?
