Windows Live Hotmail
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
It's VERY UNLIKELY that your Hotmail is "sending" anything. Hotmail is a service, and highly protected against those kinds of issues. What's more likely is the situation described here: http://ask-leo.com/someones_sending_from_my_email_address_how_do_i_stop_them.html
There was a question posted by: saima on March 28, 2006 at 09:13 stating that, "my pc was out of order since last april but now i've reinstalled it along with my hotmail account ,but the problem is that i've loosed all my contacts from my address book amongst them some are very important plz help me reinstall my previous address book,thanx."
This is the same problem that I have but I have noticed that you have not given her any directions. Can you please help me?
The Hotmail address book has nothing to do with what';s on your computer. It's kept on Hotmail servers, and you can access your Hotmail account from any computer.
If your address book (or email) disappears, I know of no way to retreive it. The most common cause is not logging in to your account often enough (once a month, I believe). I've heard of it disappearing for a day or so and then reappearing, but if your contacts or email disappear and remain missing for several days, I don't know of a way to get them back.
This is why I SO STRONGLY recommend that you not use free email accounts for anything important. There is no support.
long story short-
screw hotmail. i'm getting another service.
i've had the same email addresses for 10 years. why i stayed with them this long, i don't know... this gigantic problem is further proof that hotmail is worthless.
can anyone tell me what is the customer care number for hotmail? my account is closed and I need to activate it. i think i sent too many messages from that account and all were bounced so hotmail blocked my account. please let me know if you have contact number or email address. hotmail help didn't work with me. thanks.
You want this article: http://ask-leo.com/how_do_i_contact_hotmail_customer_service.html - but I don't think there's any real customer service. It's a free service, and you're getting exactly what you paid for.
Its very very simple,
For windows users, type the following command in the run box from start menu in the following order
regsvr32 initpki.dll (this take several seconds to complete about 40 secs)
After you're done you should be able to sign in to MSN and hotmail
my friends account got hacked. Can you reset the password(the email is written above) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is as close as I can get: http://ask-leo.com/ive_forgotten_the_answer_to_my_msn_hotmail_secret_question_and_my_password_what_do_i_do.html
itlooks like i have a new one for you. i have been in contact with msn support several times as well as my isp and so far no answers. im not receiving all e-mails? i can send e-mails to my aapt account from my msn account with no problems and i can reply back to my msn account no worries either, but if i create an new message from outlook express/microsoft outlook or my yahoo account the mail sends (with no mail returned message) but never turns up, if i reply to a message that come from my msn account it turns up imediately. i have been onto aapt's web mail page and sent a test e-mail from there and it worked, i then had 2 friends send test messages from there ends to my msn (2 x yahoo and 1 x pacific.net) and theres haven turned up either.msn said everything is ok from there end and same with aapt, and if its a fault with my pc why cant my other contacts e-mails being received? i hope you can help and i would be a very happy man if so. also is there a way of retreiving 1 of the messages sent ova a week ago as its rather important. sincerly john
