    Logging into hotmail from abroad

    Has anyone experienced difficulty logging into hotmail while traveling? I live in the USA and am trying to access it from outside. It's not letting me log in. Anyone had this problem? I don't have another email address. I don't want to go through the process to report to MS because I cannot access my work email from here. I am kind of stuck right now. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    I had some difficulty when not using a VPN abroad. But a VPN is kind of expensive for just a trip.

    You could also open a new e-mail account and forward all your Hotmail messages there, but that can be something of a hassle.

    I'm having the same issues myself. It worked fine when I was in the UK last week, but this week-no go. It wants to confirm my identity with a text or phone call, but I have no phone in the US. So no email. Not sure how to fix it, either.
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    People still use hotmail?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    No information to help, but I hope you are otherwise enjoying your trip, Vash.

    Somehow my eyes read this thread's caption as "Logging into Hotmail from Beyond" and thought we were dealing with spirits or something! Glad to see it's not that! Need to get my eyes checked....

    Have a safe trip Vash!

    I didn't have any problems using Hotmail from South Africa and Kenya last June, but I don't remember if Outlook took over Hotmail at that time.
