Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

How can I check what time and where my last Hotmail login was?

I get questions similar to this a lot.

To the best of my knowledge: you cannot. Period. I know of no way to make it happen.

I'd write a longer article, but really that's all there is too it: Hotmail does not make information regarding your last login, or last login location, available to you.

will "Hotmail" save my "Personal information changing history?" For example, if I changed my name from " andy" to " Billy" , I know that the Hotmail database will replace my old name andy with Billy, but I just wonder that will Hotmail save my changing history? that's mean sth about me: when I changed my name or when I changed my date of birth.....bla...bla....all that kind of history. thank you.

Can an account closed by Hotmail be reopened?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am pretty positive someone that doesnt like me (an ex friend) got into my hotmail account and sent a whole bunch of e-mails violating the hotmail policy (abusive e-mails or spam I dont know....). No big deal I thought, I changed my password, etc....

Well I went to sign in yesterday and I got a message saying that my account is closed and access is denied.

Now is there NO ONE I can talk to in regards to this? I have filled out that form on t e hotmail support site and all I got in return was an automated message.

Is there no PERSON I can talk to? Can a closed hotmail account be reopened?

Will hotmail actually beleive that someone signed into my account? I really cant beleive this has happened because I've had this account for years without any problems.

Has anyone had this happen to them with positive results in the end? I have a lot of personal and sentimental emails that I dont want to be gone forever.

Please someone help, I am going bonkers here!!!

over the years I have had more than one hotmail account. Many are open I am sure if I could remember the names on them it would be great. I would like to close accounts that I have had. Or even check them. Is there a way that you might know of to find old unused accounts with hotmail?

I have a Power Mac G5 computer. When I go to www.hotmail.com (we have 3 ACTIVE EMAILS) I get this message in a box:

Sign in to Hotmail

You Can:

. You can sign in or sign up at other Windows Live ID sites

I can log in on another computer that is using the same modem
with no problems. How do I get hotmail login page back on MY COMPUTER?

if you cant log into your hotmail,, try the online version of messanger at this link,,
webmessenger.msn.com with your hotmail username and password
then after you log in you should have the cookies
to go check your hotmail email

if you need to get into your hotmail account you
can also set up a pop account,, google pop email and hotmail,, and set it up on your computer with outlook express to get your hotmail email.

other then that,, thats all i know,,

I can log into MSN, but when I try to get my hotmail. I receive the following error "Internet explorer can not display the web page"
But if I use my friends email address either going through www.msn.com or www.hotmail.com it works. So what is the wrong.
