Okay, now it gets even more frustrating.
When I went to live.com before, I noticed in the upper right that "Live.com Beta for Mobile is available now!" Well, I just bought a Windows Mobile device and, in fact, started setting it up just yesterday. So I went to the page, and it gives the URL to enter into your Mobile, which takes you to a live.com page with your Windows Live Mail on it! So I could actually access my mail from my device, even if not from my PC.
So...I went to the portal page on my device, clicked "login," and entered my ID and pw, and it said "connecting" and never went anywhere.
I tried again and now it won't even go to the portal page.
