Hotmail Problems

from the Microsoft-can't-seem-to-keep-a-site-up dept

Apparently, Hotmail is having trouble staying up. This is no surprise to me. Yesterday when I sent out Up-To-Date, I received warning bounces from everyone with a hotmail account telling me that it could not connect to the server. As with eBay, it surprises me that companies aren't more prepared for things like this. I understand the occasionaly problem, but this seems to happen quite often.

    The funny thing is, that since Microsoft bought Hotmail, they have been unable to move it over to NT, due to the extremely high load those servers get. It seems like more and more websites are having troubles handling the amount of people coming on the Internet.
