    okay - wtf is with hotmail.

    i only use my hotmail addy for msn, not email. but i do check it once in a while just in case someone sends me something to there.

    there is a rediculous amount of automated replies about undelivered email with 100k attachments. of course, non of which i've sent.

    hotmail is getting shut down. big time.
