I was also able to get log into the US domain today from Denmark. Did my transfers and worked fine. But yes, still puzzled why no communication was sent via email to HSBC customers abroad. I also have HSBC Premier service and must say I was very dissatisfied with the level of service and response i received. Maybe i'm being a spoiled American in saying this but in today's modern world, 1-day offline for online banking-communication needs to be better.
