What name does your Hotmail account have registered under? **and what email is that [email protected] associated with? Also, check the recent activity on your Hotmail account(click on “more” once you are logged in). Does it say that you have requested an email address be closed/deleted by the owner of the account due to change of services or some such thing like that? You might need to contact Microsoft support for assistance: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support&n_product=hotmail&lang=en-US

Why will my hotmail not take me back into my acct when i type in my password & User ID nothing happens?

I had to get a new computer last year because mine didn’t work anymore so I hooked up with AOL got everything installed and noticed that under “contacts” all of this old stuff was still there from the previous owner who was a Hotmail user. I have no idea how to get rid of this or if it’s even possible because the address is completely different than mine. All

of the emails seem to be from people I don’t know or businesses that I’ve never done business with. How do I get rid of all this info? All of it is very old as far as dates go but since AOL allows you to see sent and received dates, it’s pretty easy to tell when the emails were received & sent.

Hi there – i just wanted some advice from anyone who might have had issues like mine…. My password keeps getting sent out – its not registered on any other website which saves your passwords for you etc, and everytime this happens hotmail resets my password and sends it to me in a text message etc. I have noticed that the only thing which causes this to happen is if i play on my xbox, and when it happens both times ive played today (i havent all week!) i get an email about 5-10 mins later saying my password has been reset and im able to log in again! Any ideas?

Hi all, My problem arises from using the Outlook 2007 calendar (desktop). About two months ago I was called by Hotmail technical support. They were able to fix the problem I was experiencing of being unable to log into my hotmail account or send email (though recieving mail was not an issue) from Outlook 2007 (2003 is OK). Ever since, any time that I try and create a calendar appointment in Outlook 2007 using either “New Appointment” or the “QuickAdd” button on the toolbar, Outlook hangs up completely …. nothing responds .. including ctrl-alt-del … then after about 10 minutes it comes back with a prompt saying “unable to create event”. All this happens while I am online at home and using broadband service. Next thing is if I reboot my computer everything is OK for a couple days and then the problem re-occurs.
