    Why can i not sign up for a hotmail account?

    Everytime i go to the page i type my windows id in it always says

    "We're temporarily unable to check ID availability. Please try again."


    I've tried for 3 days now.

    EDIT: never mind, it works in IE not firefox

    Why do you want a hotmail account? Hotmail sucks, well its alright for a web mail but their spam filterin is sub part and alot of their features require you to pay a yearly fee to be able to use them

    I've got GMail and I love it, there's no downsides to it for me.

    I used to have Hotmail but the interface was annoying and wouldn't let me forward the emails coming into my inbox apart from to other hotmail accounts.

    I've got one hotmail, one "Live" mail (still hotmail), one Gmail and one from an obscure mail provider.

    I use my GMail for everything, but I need MSN just for IM since everyone here has MSN Messenger.

    Hotmail sucks. Just get a Gmail address and set up a Live account if it's for MSN.
