Go to wrench, options, under the hood, show cookies, type live in the search box, remove all (delete any cookies that have the word live in it and anything that could be associated with Windows Live). so basically do a delete for cache, cookies and history. This will clear it up on your PC. You should be able to do the same thing on your IPad.Keep me posted if this does not clear up your Hotmail through google on PC and IPad. Hotmail is up and going.
Your Ipad hotmail you will have to delete again and then readd. Don't forget to sync it up or you will not be able to get into it.
If that doesn't work try the active sync from this link:http://www.thewindowsclub.com/configure-hotmail-ipad-iphone-ipodIt will walk you through the steps on how to active sync your device to hotmail through ipad.
Thanks - I will try later - iPad at home. Will get back to you tomorrow.
Okay keep me posted.
Once you go through the instructions.
