    Default Windows Live Email Down on iPhone

    As of yesterday around 4pm EST I have not been receiving email from my LIVE email account? Is anyone else having this issue? I have deleted the account from my device and re added it, no luck. I am getting my emails through a PC/web interface, so it has something to do with my iPhone.

    good to know karen. when i set up a "Hotmail" account, it gives the icon of Exchange and uses "Exchange" in the title area as well. When i setup an "Exchange" account, it uses "Hotmail" icon and title. weird, but i don't thinks its related to MS email services being down. it was just an observation.
