Hello, Have you updated to IE6 with security updates? Does this unit have
the same setup as the other two units?
Do you have a second browser " Firefox" etc.? If not install one and try
accessing Hotmail.
Sometimes the server has problems with some clients, last week I had same
problem, was able to log on using Firefox "once", then message in "Firefox"
stated that server for this mail group was down, there were several different
problem messages in IE. I waited a few hours cleaned out cookies,
temp.internet files, etc. tried again, worked fine.
Hope you find a solution.
Take Care.

msn.co.uk
