For quite a few months, many Mac Safari users have been having problems with HotMail. The problem is that when they try to log in to HotMail, Microsoft`s redirect commands wind up in an unending loop. This only happens when users did not manually click the link to "sign out" on their last session.

The way to solve the problem is to delete related cookies:

  1. In Safari, go to Preferences Security Show Cookies.

  2. Type in

  3. Click the Remove All button.

Now you can login to HotMail again. In the future, manually sign out each time to avoid doing these steps again. The only real disadvantage is that you`ll have to retype your username and password the next time you log in after clearing the cookies.
