Looks like Hotmail is facing a problem of enormous proportions right now. Hotmail users seem to be facing a rather serious issue with their e-mail in-boxes. Apparently, e-mails have disappeared from peoples inboxes without warning or a trace. There has been fervent activity on the Microsoft forums where they have been complaining for the past few hours about this alarming issue.
A Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed that the issue is for real but also added that only a fraction of Hotmail users have been affected. She added that they are working to restore the mails and that there is nothing to be alarmed about.
However, it is yet to be seen if this assurance does come true. Hotmail is the largest email service provider on the planet and has more than 360 million active email accounts using the service.
That said, if you happen to use Hotmail, you might want to check your inboxes now!
