Problems at Hotmail

About 200,000 premium members of Microsoft’s HotMail are experiencing problems accessing their accounts.

" The problems began Tuesday and were being resolved Friday, said Brooke Richardson, lead product manager for Microsoft’s MSN online division. Richardson said the glitch was caused by a server problem, and that the system was not attacked."

This is only a small fraction of their 190 million accounts, but you might be experiencing open rate or deliverability issues as a result of this.
