Seems to have been down since approx. 11:45AM eastern, which would be about an hour at this point.

Ouch, that must be hurting.
Same result with [search.msn.co.uk...] or with the search box on the portals.

Search is up in Virginia ... you might want to hit 'refresh' to see if that makes any difference.

I'm also seeing MSN referrals coming through once again. :)

Maybe all the subdomain spam caused the MSN servers to crash.

Microsoft Corp.'s MSN search engine stopped working for about four hours Thursday morning, and the company couldn't immediately say what caused the problem.

msn.com is down for me, not just msn search. How expensive must this be for Microsoft?

According to MSN, the reason for the outage is still being investigated. They have disabled the speller function while they troubleshoot it.
