Preferred Solution: Problem with hotmail account, account temporarily suspended)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Problem with hotmail account, account temporarily suspended)

Ask them for a appeal? The only ones who will know what happened is them. Do you happen to use Skype to send adult content? I hear they have been cracking down on that more.

I have been blocked out my hotmail account since yesterday. I can't get to my emails and need to urgently. The email account has important contact details and am waiting on replies to jobs. When I've tried to go the Microsoft and Windows Forums to post my questions, I am asked for my sign in details! This is the reason why I'm contacting the forum's in the first place - I can't get in - am blocked from my own email.
I have also gone into Internet Options and cleared cookes, deleted browsing history, etc.

Can someone please help me reactivate my email account, restore my account back to me? I can't loose the information that's there. Thanks.

Hello All, This is my first post here and I hope that you all are willing to help out a "newbie" of the forum, because as of right now I am getting fed up with my BLEEPING COMPUTER!!!My computer has been acting a little funny lately...I'm not sure what the issue is, but a lot of my administrative privileges seem to have been changed, ie "You do not have permission to (fill in blank)" If anyone has time to take a look at my hijackthis logfile as well as the adsspy logfile to see if there is anything that looks a little fishy.

I know I'm not the only person who uses AIM here, and hopefully not the only one that discovered my account suspended the other day.
Turns out it was AOL screwing up, yet again.

From Slashdot:
"According to a story on eWeek, AOL has mistakenly suspended a very large number of AOL Instant Messenger (one of the most widely used IM programs) accounts, by mistake. I don't know about you guys, but this happened to me and a large percentage of friends and coworkers. AOL says that a fix should be ready by Monday."

Yet it could take up till Moday before it is fixed. Programs like Trillian are starting to look a lot better really fast for me.
 

Answer:Your AIM account is not suspended.

That sucks...that happened to a friend of mine.

I use Trillian though but theoretically it could have still effected my aim account...but it didnt...oh wells...

Question: Suspended Account

Goodday to all you windows 10 gurus:

I am attempting to remove the suspension on my Microsoft Account. MS has informed me that they will text me a code to remove the suspension. The problem is that I'm a 76 year old dinosaur who has a land line phone that doesn't receive text messages. I've tried very automated link to support service to remedy the situation with no luck. Do any of you good folks have a support link where I can contact MS to get this resolved?

Thanking you all for any responses in advance and looking forward to your responses.

Answer:Suspended Account

Hi Powell Lucas.

Try this link.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/17875

Assuming you get in I would then proceed to open a gmail account. Its only use will be for these codes. Set it up so that the alternate email address for your gmail account is your microsoft account.

In your Microsoft account enter into the security info section and update it with your gmail address.

Going forward if you have a problem with either account the "code" will be sent to the alternate.

Can you get back old Hotmail account, after having renamed it to new Outlook account?
Well here is Microsoft's answer on Reddit!

If you renamed your account, and want to rename it back to the original name, you can do that.
IMPORTANT: This may not work if you are outside of the US and have a "@live.com" or "@Hotmail.com" address!
First, remove the alias that was created when you renamed your account (the alias will be for the original name).
Go to http://account.live.com, select "Notifications" then "manage your email preferences" and you'll find links to remove aliases.
Second, go back to the Rename page, Sign In and rename back to the original name.

Hope it helps someone!

I have setup an outlook email for support, thus far I have received and send only 2 emails, but when I tried to log in I have got a message (twice), that is has been used to sent junk. Thinking about it now, I have emails forwarded to mail.ru, which is marked as spam by many services, could it be the reason?

Recent activity shows only mine logins, but I use a default password, like: Password123.

EDIT: I have moved to Zoho email. This is the third and the last time I gave outlook a chance.

Answer:Why does my outlook account keep being suspended?

Its unfortunate that this message is worded so. I see it a lot as I set up students in my class on Outlook. We've checked and there is no unauthorized use.

I believe what it should say with recent accounts, I know we confirm you were not a robot when you opened account but we would like to check again, please.

This is obviously not the message you want to show seniors and it reinforces their doubts about safety on the Web.

Once you do this validation it is highly unlikely you will see message again, at least that is history with my students and we do about four new email accounts every three months.

Now with Outlook you also have to develop "rep". New accounts that try to send to large distributions seem to draw the verification process more often. (history with one of my students.) With normal use your rep or what seems to be rep develops quickly.

I was told I was unblocked then when I sent an email it said I am suspended. After an hour on the phone, to no avail, I tried this am and after verifying I was normalized.
Someone was trying to access my account was the message that popped up.

What can I do to prevent this? I read about 2 step verification but this does not seem to help in this situation.

I would be willing to bet that some scammer is trying to phish you.

Do not phone any phone number you get from an email unless you verify that it is the actual number it says it is. Also do Not let them connect to your computer.

Hi,
I have an Australian Bigpond account and the last couple of days I have been having trouble opening my emails.
I am able to login to my inbox but when I try to open an email I get an error message " User Mail Server Account Suspended". I have tried accessing my emails through the bigpond home page webmail link on my laptop (a windows 8) and on my ipad with safari, both with the same error message.
I contacted bigpond support (thru 24x7 live chat) who remotely accessed my laptop to view my email and told me that I had a malware virus (the heartbleed is the one he mentioned) and I needed to deal with their bigpond platinum service for a fee of $15 per month (for 2yr contract) or $200 for 1 fix. The bigpond support guy said that my account hasn't been suspended but the reason I am unable to access my emails is because of the malware that is on my laptop is stopping any email activity.
I declined this and asked my brother for help, he usually is pretty good at fixing pc stuff. He suggested that I restore my laptop. I have windows 8 and used the refresh option.
After the refresh, I tried to access my emails again but still got the same error message.
A few days ago, I did receive an email, which looked like a bigpond account statement. When I opened this I noticed that it was for an overdue account in another name and account number than my account. I told bigpond about this email but they didn't really seemed worried about it.

On Saturday I got a number of emails to my hotmail account stating that there was a failure to deliver messages to people on my contacts list. A bunch of people that I haven't talk to in years (those accounts no longer existed). Later on this followed by a number of replied emails from random people from my contacts list saying I had sent them a link. I checked my sent messages, there is nothing there.. obviously I hadn't been sending these emails... but I looked on the failed delivery and there are so many contacts from the list that are people i talk to..that must have actually got the email. Some professors, some other students and i don't no how to stop this from happening. It happened again today where someone told me that i sent them an email with a virus looking link in it.

Hi Folks: Dec. 3rd

I was experienceing no problems with accessing my Hotmail account until a few days ago. I think Hotmail has changed their web page because I have noticed, using other computers recently, that it is different.

On my computer I can't even access the webpage now; a couple of days ago, when I had still set Hotmail Inbox as my DEFAULT internet page I was able to see my mail (albeit on a diffent webpage) but I couldn't open any messages. At the bottom on my Status Bar the message reads 'Error Found'whenever i click on a message. On other computers I can access the mail but I can't delete any messages, esp. from my Junk Mail & I can't access the address Book (Contact List) at all.

I have tried a few suggestions from your readers: e.g., checking the Time/Date settings, enabling cookies, etc.
I would very much appreciate any HELP you can give.

Thanks so much.

"The problems I have logging in is as follows, "password and account id are incorrect" which is not the case." That probably is the case though. If you have let the account lapse your ID and password are invalid. You could try opening a new account and try the same ID and Password again.

I keep my Hotmail account open during work so that I can email with my wife (I know, I know - but we don't abuse the privilege and my boss knows I keep it open, ok?). Anyway, for a while now when I've signed in to Hotmail, instead of making a nice neat transition from the login page to my inbox, it would go to a "file not found" page. I had solved this minor issue by simply refreshing the page. Often it would go to a weird looking, text-only version of my inbox, which I would have to refresh again. Then everything would work fine for the rest of the day. This occurred in both IE7 and Google Chrome.
Yesterday, as our resident "tech guy" (as in, happens to know more than anyone else in our company, and only enough to be dangerous), I was tasked with installing an updated version of NOD32 antivirus software. I don't know if these things are related, but now I am unable to access my inbox for Hotmail, in either IE or Chrome.

When I try to go to the log-in page, sometimes I can't even get to it. If I open a new window, I can usually at least get the log in page and enter my username and password. But after I attempt to complete the sign-in process, I get a "HTTP 400 - Bad request" error. In Chrome, it says, "Bad Request (Invalid Verb)".

This happened to me yesterday afternoon, after installing NOD32. When I logged in on both my computers at home last night, I had no problem.

Virtually everything I help other folks with I can find an answer to, but this one has me tearing my hair out.

Where I live in Spain we often get power cuts. Each time it happens I have to re-enter passwords for all the PC forums I help on and my Hotmail account, that was only a minor irritation, but now Hotmail has changed its security measures and made it a big irritation.

After the power has failed, PC is rebooted and when I try to sign into Hotmail I enter my email address and password and it takes me to a page that says "You haven't signed in from this location recently" that alone is hard to understand as I am using my hotmail account every single day.

It then asks for me to verify the account and sends me a text message, I enter the code number received and submit it only to be taken back to the same page again. I've done this verification several times and it just goes around in a never ending circle.

I end up having to select the option "I can't verify my account", fill in all the details and then later in the day or the next morning my account is accessible again, but only until there is another power cut and I have to go through the same routine all over again. I've tried to add my desktop PC as a trusted PC but it says I need to have Windows Essentials installed, so I installed it, rebooted and still got the same message.

Hello,

I was curious if anybody knew this. I could not find it anywhere and had never heard of it. Is there a way to temporarily disable an email account? Like a pause button. So if I 'pause' a specific account (I have approx. 6 email accounts in my Outlook, mostly POP3 & Exchange), when I hit Send/Receive it will not be included, but if I 'unpause' it shall be included. Is there a feature like this?

If this is possible I'd like to implement this in a family members of mine computer. So it must be 'stupid proof' if it is.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook: temporarily disable an email account?

Using Office XP.

I have know sorted all my accounts into 1 but If I remember right...

Tools
Send/Receive Settings
Define Send/Receive Groups
Make Sure "All Accounts" is selected and click "Edit"
Select the account in the left hand column.
Untick "Include account in this send/receive group"

Hope this helps.

I am using a Yahoo mail account which downloads emails to Windows Live Mail on my desktop.

I am being spammed by Online Casino emails, and despite blocking the senders domain in WinLiveMail, it only lasts for a few days and then returns. Also done the same thing with selective blocking in Yahoo Mail account settings for SPAM blocking but same result.

I tried to contact Yahoo Mail tech support to find out if it's possible to turn off my main Yahoo Mail account for a week or two, as it is the one being spammed, but I get no reply. Apart from FAQ does anyone know how to email or live chat Yahoo Mail support?

I can't use the "Unregister" option in the incoming spam mail, or I'll get inundated with commercial emails.

Also tried various options like Mail Washer, etc.

Can anyone think of an option so I don't see these emails, short of closing the account and creating a new one. The thing is, this is my main account I've used in many online registrations.

The weird thing is I've never been on the web site of Online Casino and never use the main email account in emails or online, except for signing in to things like my ISP, Yahoo Mail, etc.
 

Answer:Temporarily turn off email account in Yahoo mail

Yahoo email filters are poor; they only support the model:
block email-id is [email protected]​and spammers continue to reach you by changing the user portion. Better email client software supports that as well as:
block email-id contains @domain​and regardless of the email user, that domain gets blocked

fyi: Thunderbird is my favorite email software

So I have an administrator account for maintenance purposes and I also have my frequently used standard account.

Usually, when you right click on a program, for example: Spybot S&D

There is an option to "Run as Administrator".

And if you click it, it prompts for an admin password.



But for me, it does not ask for an admin password, it just ignores the fact that I clicked that completely, and runs it as a standard user.


This happens whenever I need admin privileges for something. I cannot elevate my privileges on a standard user account.

It used to work properly, until I changed my account type to standard, and enabled the Administrator account.



Specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium

Dell Inspiron N7010

Answer:Cannot Elevate Privileges Temporarily on Standard User Account

Bump.

If it helps at all, whenever I click on something that needs admin elevation, a window pops up and says:

I'm the only user on this laptop and my admin account was called "HybridPC" and I disabled the windows login screen. (Turn computer on and goes right to desktop). One day the welcome screen popped up out of nowhere and I had to login. I tried disabling the login screen to where it was before and now I've screwed things up royally. I cannot login to my original admin account or find it. All the files are still there on my C:\Users\HybridPC folder, but I've lost the profile and user.
I think I messed things up further by trying to create/delete other new user accounts. I've attached 3 screenshots showing my C:users folder, User account screen and the netplwiz.exe profiles.

I've been adding/deleting and can't get back to square one. I don't see my user at all on the welcome screen.

This is very strange. A few weeks ago someone in my household created a user account with administrative privileges and changed the other accounts to standard users. Problem is that now we can not log on to the account. It isn't on the log in screen. All I can do it see it through the manage accounts option in the control panel. From here I can attempt to add a password among other things. Since the account I do have access to is standard. What I want to do is, get on the account or get rid of the account. I need administrative privileges on an account I can access. Why can't I see this account on the log in screen?

Answer:Weird account problem Admin account not at login screen

Hello and welcome Chas mate I would find the culprit and recover the password for that account from whoever it is and change the admin back to what it was previously.

Now given you state it is someone within your household I am thinking this person or persons need a good talking to if that person is still there of course if not then you have a problem.

I don't think even a system restore will do it either.

The alternative is to back up all your data and reinstall.

I can’t access my HOTMAIL accounts- HOTMAIL support?

I learned about Microsoft’s new policy of not allowing you to send email from Hotmail using it’s own products Outlook and Outlook Express unless you are paying an additional fee, when I replied to a (Hotmail) email while using OE. After sending my reply I received an error message that OE could not access the account. It then proceeded to DELETE all my previous email message in outlook express for this account.

A web search then led me discover that this account was one of those now requiring payment of a fee to send mail using Outlook or OE instead of logging on to the website. (They are doing this in stages so some HOTMAIL accounts still allow the free use and access with Outlook/OE.)

I then tried to sign on to my account using another Microsoft product Internet Explorer- initially everything looked unchanged,

2. I got a new screen of “scrambled letters” designed to prove that a person and not a machine is accessing my account.

Answer:I can't acces my HOTMAIL account- Hotmail Tech Support?

I've never used Outlook or Outlook Express in any form my self, so I can only offer some limited suggestions for sorting this out.

First: have you tried deleting all cookies and accessing the account? If using XP/2k -- it may even be helpful to try creating a new User Profile and logging in under that, this will ensure you have an entirely new web cache, index.dat and cookie folder.

Try accessing the account from another computer and see if you get in that way.

It worked a couple days ago, but I had to do a restore. Now, when I try to modify my account settings (Settings>Accounts>Your Account>Add work or school account) it connects to my work to complete the sign in, but instead of getting a confirmation, I get a screen with nothing more than "#" as my message. I am attaching a picture. Of course, on my account page, it doesn't show as a connection.

I can successfully navigate to my company's sharepoint and do work, etc. So I suspect a problem/issue on my PC. I just upgraded to Windows 10 about 6 days ago.

Answer:Problem adding work account to my user account

Today, I observed that if I attempt to navigate to the company sharepoint through Edge, I get this same "#" message when I attempt to sign in. If I use Internet Explorer, it works fine.

I've given up on "adding" the work account. Our company uses Okta, and perhaps it's a lack of support for Edge (hypothesis) causing the problem. The fact I can use IE and have no issues is enough for me.

I bought a new laptop, then set up my user account name in foreign characters because I didn't know it was going to be a problem. After a while several programs had trouble accessing files in C:/users/[old name] because the [old name] was in foreign characters. So I decided to switch my account name to a simple English name in control panel. I had no idea switching user account name would be such a convoluted process. Now in the log-in screen it displays the new name, but all it did was create another folder in C:/users with the new name, the old folder with the foreign name was still there. What's worse is that this account is STILL linked to the files in the old folder. For example when I edit stuff in Acrobat, my author name would default to the foreign name, or in games it would store cache files in C:/users/[old name]/AppData.
So how do I migrate all the files from C:/users/[old name] to C:/users/[new name], and link this account to the new folder, then permanently delete everything associated with the old account? I don't think I can simply manually delete C:/users/[old name], and expect the computer to magically associate the new account name?

I have not installed any apps (however there wsa an app that I do not know what was doing there with the text showing @\user\microsoft\windowsapp\ etc. the text was longer an I was not able to remove the app)
However the problem of the emails did not arise after the above app was mysteriously installed but happened before.

Is there any way I can appeal to them to get at least my contacts? I don't know who to write or contact to request this. I would certainly hope that someone has had this problem and can tell me how I can at least get my contacts.

Answer:not able to log onto hotmail account

did hotmail state this on your login failure?>>

Type your .NET Passport sign-in e-mail address and password correctly. Remember, passwords are case-sensitive.

Hotmail is pretty vague as to the failure for the sign in mainly due to the server registering either one as an error.

if u are certain that your password is correct then the e-mail address u keyed in might be incorrect and vice versa.

maybe try creating a new password?? (as suggested if u can't remember it by Hotmail)

Click "Close account" button. This will only close the e-mail service, the Windows Live ID that is associated with your account will remain active and will be deleted after 365 days of inactivity. If you would like to access any of our Windows Live ID services, please use a different account. From Account Closure - Hotmail AccountAfter closing the account, you can create another hotmail account HERE. Scroll down the page. On the right hand-side, look for Hotmail. You will be able to sign up for a new account.Now that I've gone through all that, are you using Windows Live Mail client or are you checking mail on the web?

Question: Hotmail account ?

Could you explain The account policies that govern your use of Hotmail are detailed in our Online Help. Please note that you must sign into your Hotmail account at least once every 30 days. If you do not, your account will become inactive. After being inactive for 90 days, it will be deleted. You may want to save this message so you always have a handy link to this important information.
Example if I have a Hotmail address [email protected] and I do not sign in Hotmail account explain if I do not my account will become inactive. After being inactive for 90 days, it will be deleted so I will not beable to get my [email protected] back again
 

Answer:Hotmail account ?

sportman10,

From Hotmail Help page - Close Account:
If you don't sign in for 30 days (or within the first 10 days), your account will become inactive. At that time, any messages in your account will be deleted and inbound e-mail will be refused. Your Passport will still function, and your Hotmail e-mail name will be reserved. If your account stays inactive for a further 90 days, it is permanently deleted, and your e-mail name is no longer reserved. Click to expand...

Answer:Hotmail account

Some users have given up on this an went over to other providers, like Yahoo and Google. Still, MS has made some remarks about this problem.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-osend/be-careful-this-sender-failed-our-fraud-detection/c1712db2-00ab-4e61-8ede-d20aa6486f45QuoteWe are already aware of this issue and we have already forward this to our Product team. In the meantime, we advice you to mark any emails as Phishing scams if you are not sure about it. You can also review email headers if in doubt for messages that seem suspicious.That was three years ago.

Hello

I have a hotmail.com account which is fine.
I also have Outlook Express and can receive mail in Outlook Express from my hotmail account with no problems.

I have just created a hotmail.com account for my friend.
I can receive mail from this new account to my own hotmail account but I am having problems receiving e-mail from this account to my Outlook Express.

NB. It is my friends hotmail address that I want to be able to receive messages from. I can receive them fine from my own hotmail account.

Can anyone please offer any advice.

Thank you Cinders
 

Answer:hotmail.com account

If your friend is using the free hotmail service, then you cannot access the account with an editor such as Outlook Express. You can only access Hotmail externally if the account is a paid option.

Answer:cannot log into my hotmail account

Uninstall and reinstall network adapter driver if you have not done yet, see if it helps. In worst case, you might want to reinstall the Windows OS and try again.Hope this helps.

Hi,

I'm have trouble logging into my Hotmail account, though others using the same computer can log into their accounts without any difficulty.

When I try, this is what I get in the address line:

http://www.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/sbox?did=1&t=5hWtcDIedBJzGne2nJxmvZ0MzfW1BTcdEcvoe2Soo2tEr3lj*M9Y7T!LdDv4cRGnwW1tETLV9uNlCcINlt86PghA$$&p=5ZStEf5PpBvwhQwo1k08Vdtz22JRVolzcIWFa2i09YPdEtslG4fvkB8mPs3Wfe8PHe19m8W9ClTSyQFlgdP3qgJybr2Wws5A33FSMuQW8KRIOpoleRJzsWSpw65pJ8NQfQMALl4ABU4vjhC2SXZdcZWqVQm6fF4c9qXVyZSKLREEqVVOJMZTCK*gdptrYvv3H9

and this is the message on the screen:

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

When I try to log in via My MSN, I can view the subjects of the first several e-mails, but can't access them.

When I try to sign in with another of my Hotmail accounts, it says I am already signed in with the one that I can't get into.

I'd really appreciate some advice...

Thanks much,

Andrea
 

Answer:Can't log into Hotmail account, but others can from same PC

Hi,

I've seen similar problems with Hotmail and Yahoo acounts. I think the volume on these "free" accounts is SO HIGH.......that it fills to capacity as far as availability. My advice would be to try again at different times. This problem makes these accounts very unpredictable and somewhat unreliable because of the availability issue.

Help. How do I set up another hotmail account. I have one at present but I am experiencing problems with links [on this forum] I bbelieve if I set up a new account and let everyone know the new address the problems will cease. However, on the hotmail/msn pages there is no "new account" facility and I'm at a loss to know what to do next. msn have n=been less than helpful and moreso because it's a free account, having said that I will be buying something from msn because I shall require extra storage as I cannot get it on my current account because msn have 'locked' it. I get it free forever [25mb] but cannot use it for anything else. Sorry to ramble but if someone can help I'd be eternally grateful.tc

Question: Hotmail Account

This morning something or someone attached itself to my hotmail account and sent out a message to everyone in my address list.  Now whenever I go to create a new email that email is there.  I don't know what is going on and I can't figure out how to report it.  It is very embarassing because it has been sent out in my name and it is about aquiring hot merchandise.  I hope someone can help me with this.

Question: Hotmail Account!!!

I have just looked at my @Hotmail.com account and see there are a bundle of e mails apparently sent by me to people I do contact, but checking the messages it seems as though there has been a quote added like "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying." Woody Allen.
Should I close my Hotmail account and get rid of all the garbage that has flown in?
I haven't opened the majority of messages, but looked at one and assume the balance, 11 messages, will be of a similar nature!
Cheers
TonyV

Answer:Hotmail Account!!!

I'd change the password first to see if this stops. Add characters such as '@' or '%' to the password and make it fairly long. Do you have a favourite quote or ditty you remember? Then use the first letter of the words in the quote/poem as your password and include different characters as well.
