Preferred Solution: hotmail account

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:hotmail -- transferring/copying contacts to new hotmail account from old

Have you tried using the extensive filter and spam blocking on Hotmail?

If you are usiing OE also go to it and export your address as an .csv file then go to this url and import them to your new hotmail account.

I don't know if their is a provision to import them from your old Hotmail account.

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,

1. however after typing in my name and password instead of opening my account

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

3. I type in these scrambled letters and one of two things happens:

a. (Usually) I receive yet another screen of scrambled letters to input

b. (Occasionally) I receive the “sign in screen” again EITHER WAY

4. Whichever screen I receive- whether I input scrambled letters yet again or insert my name and password the process repeats itself and one of two things happens:

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.

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 had several hotmail accounts that I could view in the Nokia 930 windows 10.
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.
It looked like that one specific account was inexplicably confused with another email account...e when I was tapping on one Icon app of hotmail account I would actually read the email of another account.
My main Email setup account within windows phone setup had disappeared and when trying to re added it was saying that it was already setup.
Therefore I could only but hard rest my phone. I have hard reset it four times now and every time I setup the account with my main Email account everything is fine but when I add another email account it all goes wrong with similar variations of the above issue and now I even have an error message saying the account the I added

I can't log back into the @hotmail.co.uk email addresss as I wanted to close it and I've tried the forgot password method but still had no success.

My question is what happens if I leave the email address for example not attempt to login to the account for a long period of time, will it automatically be deleted?

Answer:Hotmail.co.uk account?

The account should get canceled after 270 days of inactivity.

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.

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.

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

Are you logging into the account by way of web browser or by the new Mail app? For older WLM and Hotmail as well as Live accounts you would want the Windows Essentials 2012 over the new Mail app.

Logging in directly online you would add the destination is as a new contact if not already in your address book there so the emails being sent will go through. I find that every time I go to send an email out to a new contact and forget to add the address in first as a new contact the draft will be saved.

Hi all

Has anybody else been locked out of their Hotmail account lately?

I have been locked out since Friday May 17th.

At first I could not get Hotmail to recognise even my account name. When it finally did, it would not accept my secret answer and redirected me to msn support.

msn support now tll me there is no such account, even though there is still a secret question logged against it and email sent to it dos not return undelivered.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I foresee a huge security blunder on the horizon. Possible scenarios include a distributed denial of service or mass email virus dissemination through 'disappeared' Hotmail accounts.

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)

Couldn't find an area for a question about Hotmail ?? I Googled Hotmail Forum it brought me here to this site - registered so here is my query:

I have begun placing my CONTACTS into Categories like Family, Family O/S ( Over/Seas) Friends, Friends O/S, Business, Business O/S etc etc.
I have done that by ticking the "OBVIOUS" contacts boxes in my long contact list and transfering them to the appropriate Category.
However with about 290 contacts to place I keep going through the list, wondering if I placed them to the appropriate category.
Of course to check I have to close out of the main contact list, then go another list to check if I put them where I think they should be ( Some need to be included in a couple of Categories )
Is there some way that I can show - on my MAIN CONTACT LIST that I have placed them somewhere?
Like an indication mark ?
That then would then allow me, as I go through the list in Alphabetical order to see those Contacts that still have somewhere to be placed..Regards Don

Answer:hotmail account

Follow these steps to close your account: 1. Visit http://mail.live.com/mail/CloseAccountConfirmation.aspx 2. Sign in using your Windows Live Hotmail account and password. 3. 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? If you use WLM, someone may be able to help you resolve the isssue if you post details about it.

Answer:Hotmail Account Security

It is highly unlikely that anyone could access your Hotmail account from another computer unless they knew the account NAME and the account PASSWORD. While complete privacy of E-mail communication can be assured only by encryption, for all practical purposes keeping your computer safe from keylogging and malware, not divulging your password to anyone, and changing it periodically should assure its privacy.

I found that yahoo account will freeze after entering wrong password for 3 times .. does it work for hotmail??
 

Answer:how to freeze hotmail account?

I don't know what you mean by freezing an account. Yahoo probably prevents login attempts for a certain period of time (not forever) if the wrong password is entered too many times in a row in a short period of time. That means you can't access it either. I don't see what the possible benefit of that would be.

If someone hacked your account, that means they got your password. Use a stronger password, and set it on a secure computer.

Yesterday morning at 8 am, my hotmail account was used to send out a weblink that contained a virus (or the email itself was a virus, I am not sure). I have noticed for the past few days that my email account was acting funny, it would say that it lost the internet connection while I was trying to read or delete emails. I have not done anything yet to try and remove the malware that must be in my pc. I have defender pro 5 in 1 installed on my computer, it has been there since I got this computer last year. When I scan my computer it only shows that some cookies have been removed. I am not sure if it scans for malware or not, it is supposed to check for viruses.

Hey. For some reason my hotmail account keeps sending spam emails to everyone on my contacts list. How do I make it stop?

Answer:Hotmail account compromised?

Andrew,

Your account may have been compromised by Spyware. I have been getting multiples of Yahoo and Hotmail account users recently who are having the same problem. My suggestion is to download a spyware remover like SuperAntiSpyware... update it to current definitions and reboot your machine into Safe mode then clean your system up. Then change your email account password ...but be aware your contact list may have already been downloaded to the spammer(s) so stopping maybe be more difficult for the already captured contactlist participants. Changing the email password, and please use one more cryptic than a Spaceballs password, should keep the Spyware / Spammer(s) from getting more contacts and causing you more grief.

Hello,

I've been getting annoyed and concerned texts and messages from friends over the past few days telling me that they've been getting viagra mail from my main hotmail account at 4am. I've no idea how this could have happened. I'd like to say I'm internet savvy, so I haven't been downloading or clicking anything I shouldn't have been that would 'cause this to happen.

I use the downloadable Windows Live Mail program and have three hotmail accounts I check through it. These e-mails only seemed to be sent out the day after I cleared one of old my accounts with 1,000 e-mails using the program. Most were spam, and I didn't click/download anything within those messages, I simply deleted them.

The Windows Live program is telling me that it can no longer send/receive messages for this old account. It is since this failure message started appearing that my other completely unrelated account, that I also check through Windows Live Mail, has started sending out viagra adverts at 4am. They do not appear in the sent items folder in the Windows Live mail program or the online webmail sent items folder.

Hi,

I think I may have a spyware on my computer as someone recently sent a series of spam e-mails (Viagra and the likes) from my Hotmail account. I have changed my password and run a full scan with Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, but did not find anything. My internet explorer seems to be crashing quite often also.

I am worried that the same spyware used to get my Hotmail password could capture other data such as my financial passwords.

How can I tell if I am or not infected?

Thanks,

Thomas

Messages have been sent to only some of my contacts (repeatedly) and each message is different. Perhaps random...at times. There is a link to a google website next to each message. I am receiving each message, as a delivery status notification, as well as the contact. What is this??

Hello Houston! We have a problem!

I have different Hotmail accounts, but I started to have a problem with one of them a few days ago. When I log in to it, the IE freezes for a while, and then shows a message like I don´t have internet connection. "The webpage cannot be displayed".
It´s weird because I can access my other accounts with no problem at all. I tried to access it from the MSN messenger but it´s the same.
I changed my password, using the secret question, thinking that was the issue, but nothing happened.
I contacted MSN tech support but they don´t give me any solutions. I have WIN XP and IE 6.0. and the cookies are activated.
Does anybody know how can I fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I checked my hotmail account this morning and found that suddenly an additional 60 emails were present. All of them were emails which had failed to be sent and returned to me (i.e. Delivery Status Notification Failure). The "senders" address is wowaccountadmin, none of the intended recipients were from my friends/contacts list (from what I can tell, I only opened a few), and all concerned a World of Warcraft scam of some sort.

My other email accounts (not on hotmail) don't seem to have any issue.

Please help!
