I have been trying to access my hotmail account several times now, and every time i try to access it says " there is a problem with your windows live id. I tried accessing through messenger as well as, but i still could not access it.

At first i noticed something was wrong as my blackberry service sent me a message stating that it no longer received e-mails and asked me to update password. ( this was not the case obviously)

Does anyone know why is this?

I also tried to verify if it had been deleted, so i sent an email from my gmail account, since it didnt get back, i assume it has not been deleted.

This all happened since 3 hours ago.
