Hotmail is not limited to providing web mail services only. They are also offering , contact, calendar and other valuable services to their users.

But Hotmail has been migrated into outlook.com. That’s why some old users are having little problem with their old hotmail account. Sometimes they are not able to login with their account and sometimes they are not able to open webmail functions.

After Optimizing or resetting your browser, you should reboot your computer and then try to login with your hotmail account.

Incorrect Password – Hotmail takes security issues very seriously. So if you are typing the incorrect your username and password. It won’t allow you to sign in.

Change alias name – If sometimes, you are able to sign in with your account but sometimes you are not able to sign in with your account. This means you have problem with your username. So you should add one another alias name and make it into Outlook.com

After changing your alias name, I hope this will start working fine.

Change DNS address – If you are going to hotmail.com but it is not loading. This problem might because of incorrect dns address. so you should change the dns address and make primary address as – 8.8.8.8 and secondary as 8.8.4.4 and reboot your computer. Hope this will start working fine.
