People, have you tried go to Internet Explorer or Firefox (a better browser) and write www.hotmail.com on them or just look that on google. Once there, you just need to give your mail account address and bellow can put your password. Then just press the button that appears bellow.
Making that I can sure 100% that let all of you go to hotmail inbox. Messenger is not the only way to access to your mail account.
To all those already knows that, other answer: use GMAIL is much more useful and better than hotmail. Messenger? Just let Gmail get or your mail of Hotmail inbox to your Gmail Inbox.
