Windows Live Hotmail fucked up with Bangladesh “time zone” !

Posted on: January 19, 2008

I had this argument with my friend that he didn’t send me email when he supposed to! And he would keep saying that he sent me but I didn’t reply on right time? I went to my live email box to have a look at receiving time and then I would take screenshot to make him understand – “see this is when you send me email! ”

Time zone option

He was like hell NO! I sent email at 2.10PM and how come you received it on 7.10PM??? That was really weird – I thought I chose different time zone so I went to change it (option – view edit your personal information – edit register profile). HUH? Time zone is ok! I selected Bangladesh time zone then what the fuck is wrong with it!? Then I emailed my friend Tapos to check if he gets the right receiving time! Holy! He has the same problem.

I guess if you are a Bangladeshi Windows Live user, you are facing same problem. To solve it you have one more option right now! You can select GMT time; it shows you the right time! So when you receive any email you can add +6 hours with your receiving time.

I have emailed to windows live team. Let see what they say. I will inform you all.

Did you noticed the spelling of “Dhaka” isn’t it funny too. you can also send a mail to windows live team 🙂

I sent 20 emails to the windows live team with no response what so ever. Hot MAil sucks major ass!!

Update : Mr. Ryan from Live technical support emailed me today and he told me to change my Time zone and get back in the BD time zone again. i did what he asked – but its still same. he told me if its still dint work then i should email him the Header Info of the receiving email. this is what i did , so lets see what comes next from him ….

Update : Well – at last Windows live team realized that BD timestamps is wrong! today they emailed me to confirm that, they are working on the issue to solve it as soon as possible. i also suggested them to correct our Capital city name.

hope, soon they solve this issue!

They never fix anything until you can convince them. I’m working with them from a long time and I know how painful is that. Try searching উইকিপিডিয়া and উইকিপিডিয়া on live.com and see the results are not same. I cannot say here why, but they are not fixing it, but Google says it will take a couple of month to fix that. 🙂

No company is going to do a fix for anything unless you convince them.

Thanks for the advice because I’ve had the same problem here in Britain and I couldn’t think how to sort it out. Thanks! And hope it all works out for you

Same problem i am facing. I send couple of mails to Hotmail team and no response found from them.
