Bleeding hotmail

Hotmail has stopped working in the past two days. The MSN site reports there are no issues with hotmail, which leads me to suspect that maybe it is being blocked for Nigeria.. Can anyone confirm?

You are in Abuja. Do a traceroute to say google.com and see if your route goes thru the network domain 63.247.85.0-255. If it does, then it means that you have GST along the way somewhere. Get your service provider to call them and sort it. There is a block somewhere on the access list...

er - can I have that in English mate? Someone else in Nigeria's hotmail is buggered - they use a different isp to me.

I'm not in Naija so can't confirm if it applies to me.

Suggest you check if your IP address is on any spam blacklists

Also try using Tor to see if you can connect through a non-Nigerian address.

otherwise try some open proxy servers.

Hotmail is working perfectly here. It's definitely an ISP i-block-u-or-not thing.
Ngozi has spoken well, better jump at her offer.
Hotmail sucks atimes in Nigeria, the webpage dragging unnecessarily.

Ngozi,  5:51 pm
