VM Customers have been having issues with the receiving of emails, possibly due to the "over-active" spam filters and redirecting them :(

Some people, including myself have been having Login failures, with folks being left without any access to their inbox at all. On a personal level I have just have to refresh the page a couple of times and then I'm in. I've not had any other problems myself.

Apparently VM say "We've now rectified this and apologies for any inconvenience caused." Although my own login issues are still apparent today. Quote Source

Anyone else had issues or having them? Have they improved at all?

Microsoft Hotmail / Outlook

Similarly, Hotmail users have been unable to login, meaning they had zero access to certain services they use on a regular basis. It appears this caused problems for people that might have been using the accounts for work contacts and such.

It doesn't help when you look back previous suspected hacks, which is always a worry, as well as the previous spam flooding fiasco, due to filters deciding they wanted to take a nap. Seen here

They say both VM and the Hotmail issues are now resolved, that said the spam flood issue seems to reoccur though, so who knows if we'll see that again? - See here

Still having spam by the barrel load? I can't say I am, but if you were wondering what was going on with either VM or Hotmail/Outlook, at least you know it's not just yourself.

Such a pain sometimes. Mine seems active at the moment, have you tried in the last half hour at all?

Just tried now and seems to be back up.
Typical that I'm waiting for an important email too! (_;)

Google somtimes locks accounts out and you just need to accept terms again. Just did it on this link. Emails working on iPhone now.
