Hotmail LIVE


I don’t know about others but at this point I am getting more and more fed up with Hotmail Live. 1 out of every 200 times does the normal Live load, I usually have to go to the “Lite Version” or now they call it the “Classic Version”

I would use the normal version if it loaded! It isn’t that bad, and it does have some useful features if only it would load. The email system seems to be very heavy when you click to read emails unlike Gmail which loads as if they are light as a feather.

There are still features missing on the “Classic Version”, but they have improved since now you can select everyone on the list and delete if you want unlike before, and you have a few more useful tools. But it still feels like something isn’t working right. I currently only check my hotmail once every one to two weeks, and I only use it for orders or subscriptions so I can check it and see exactly what is going with my deliveries and keep track of things. For my day to day email I use my Gmail more then anything else. At this point I have given up on Hotmail Live improving, I never thought they could take a service and make it so unfriendly and daunting to use, they should take a look at what Yahoo did and learn from them.

For once I just want the normal Hotmail Live to load, is that too much to ask….

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!


  1. no its not :p
    but uve got gmail and yahoo .. so ur is ok.
    and i cant sleep.

  2. i have no idea why i wrote “is”?
    hehehe and good morning :)

  3. I’m a yahoo user, and had similar problem with its new outlook look a like version.. I hated it, after a month of trying it, I switched back to the so called classic version as well..

  4. I had the same issue for over a month till last week. It simply wouldn’t reach the Live version and I always had to select the light one. Since last week the issue seems to be alright.

    Personally, I’d love to move over to Gmail except that I’ve been using my Hotmail account for a number of years now and its integration with Messenger helps (latter is less important).

  5. I’m very suspicious what that Windows Live can be downloading to my computer that makes it take so long to load… same with MSN messenger (compared with Yahoo).

    Conspiracy time.

  6. I want the Classic Hotmail to come back, remember back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s that’s when Hotmail was in its golden age. I believe that right now it’s Gmail’s golden age.

  7. no3ik: looool! Ola, you were up from that time! Damn! hehehe.. “is” hehehe! Don’t worry about it, you were up late!

    The Don: yeah, Im getting really annoyed with them!

    sabah: I was the same as you, slowly migrate to Gmail! You would be surprised how much better it is and how good it is to use something this good!

    Yazeed: true!

    moocherx: I agree with you! Its a conspiracy!

    Jacqui: yeah, I remember hotmail’s golden age, but now its Gmail’s golden age and yahoo following behind, while Hotmail just stopped progressing!

  8. lol no i wasnt up late, i just didnt sleep at all ! :p

  9. no3ik: insomniac! hehehe! What do you do up all night?

  10. read blogs, books, watch videos youtube, watch tv, then stare at the ceiling. sad isnt it!

  11. no3ik: nope, there is a lot online that could you keep you up if your head doesnt get too heavy! hehehe
