How to know which server you are on? Here is a way.

As we already know that Hotmail have millions of users from all over the world and the user accounts of these users are spread over numerous servers. If any body wants to know that which server is hosting their user account and here is way to do this. This will help at the time of maintenance which Hotmail does sometimes then they mention this thing at their blog with server name that some particular server is under maintenence or experiencing some problem and we can easily get to know whats exactly the problem in case we face some problems regarding hotmail services.

Simply hover you mouse over any of the links under Related places present at the bottom left hand corner and check out the status bar.

Or see the address bar where you get a web address similar to given below:



In this URL, address is somewhat like this as:
http://snt114w.snt114.mail.live.com/default.aspx?rru=inbox&wa=wsignin1.0

So here the server for this hotmail account is snt114.
