i don't know what they did,
but my Hotmail account is screwed.
i have used it for ever, no problems.
they mess with it for no reason,
now i have to get all new contacts.
if they changed it to get me to upgrade,
they must be the stupidest people around.

Re: problems with Hotmail, they just changed the format, and my account is all messed up, unusable
will this happen to all free email?
should i just bite the bullet,
and get a paid email account?
if so, any suggestions?

It's been doing that periodically for me since they started messing with it about a year ago.

Sometimes you get on and it's all scrambled, but if you wait a few hours it will be okay later.

What browser are you using?

Did you try clearing all your internet temporary files (cache and cookies particularly)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 492806


Exactly. The upgrade they did from classic to live last summer was THE worst of all. I bitched every time I had to login - many times 2 or 3 times even when I KNEW I did it correctly. If they wanted to have us type the info twice for verification, why not just SAY so. It was really irritating. But the worst of it was you couldn't read your emails without lines going thru them if you used Firefox, which I do.

But this latest change was the first time ever that Hotmail actually did that worked. It looks better and is easier to navigate - and no more crappy lines when using Firfox.

Think you'd do well, OP, if you cleaned out all your cache and history - and use Firefox instead of IE.

If all the clearing out of cache doesn't work (and Firefox, either), try shutting down your computer and unplugging it for a little bit. Sometimes these cranky electronic things just need to be completely reset.
