Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Thank you very much. Really it's an excellent informative article. I think it is rare in today's web market.
My account in hotmail has been reactivated, since then I can't access to my old messages, can I recover them?
No. That's this article: http://ask-leo.com/messages_deleted_on_hotmail_can_i_get_them_back_somehow.html
I currently and routinely use Gmail with Firefox and remove the spam. Every 2 or 3 days I download the mail into IE (gmail let you do) and so the REAL mail is stored in my PC even when no internet connection is available. By the way I also use an alias address supplied by the IEEE so that my address is always the same in these years: before using Gmail the mail was routed to other free addresses, a couple of which disappeared or became unavailable overnight (C4com and CTOnet, just for examples). Nothing is perfect but now I am relatively satified and unworried.

Gmail's spam filter is 10x better than hotmail's. Hardly any spam actually gets through to me
Hi I was told that you can recovers ur password on hotmail but sending and email too
email@example.com now I have been looking for it all over hotmail I am thinking maybe this is a hoax as the person I got it from said to put my currrent password down for the account I am sending it from. Is this a hoax or does it have any truth to it?

I agree with you completely re free email accounts. For 6 years I dutifully paid for my AOL each month but also never, ever had a problem. The minute I switched to their free AOL, I had all sorts of problems, not related to my high speed internet provider, and the AOL people got plain ugly about the whole thing and would not answer a question even when the problem originated in their server. I am desperate for a new email account with someone else.
Most free emails all work the same. But so far Gmail helps rid my spam mail best.
If anyone is in need of a free email account that does not have intrusive ads, check out http://mail.tripdiscussion.com . You can get a free email account there without ads. Has virus protection, spam blocking tools, and much more. It is great for someone who just wants a free simple reliable email account.
