Hi Banno,

You will have to dig a little deeper, but here's a link. Try and find something a little bit more current, but it will give you a starting point. Take at look at your firewall and see what ports are being blocked on the inside going out and you should be able to track it down. and

Re: Problem accessing hotmail..

Hotmail login is done via a secure (https) connection on port 443. You have to explicitly allow it in the pix. If you want to open all SSL then all you need to do is access-list Inbound permit tcp any any eq 443

access-list Outbound permit tcp any any eq 443

That, of course, is going to allow all SSL traffic both ways, however, so you may want to limit it to only those users who need it.
