Windows Live Hotmail
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
If you check on the top left corner of "old-style" hotmail accounts, there is an option to change it to
"new-style". It means you would not have to create a
new account just to get a Windows Live interface+account, and also ALL YOUR CONTACTS AND OLD DATA(MESSAGES) ARE CARRIED OVER.
what the hell? Clicking 'sign up' does NOT take you to the process of making a new account! It takes you to the process of getting live hotmail! Get your facts right!!

"getting live hotmail" *is* getting a new account. Get your
accusations right :-).

Uhh. Well. I tried this... I clicked sign up, and got a notice to download 'hotmail'. I downloaded/installed it, but what's confusing me is... getting 'Live Hotmail' meant getting a program. An e-mail based PROGRAM to check email.
I didn't get the actual "sign-up page" to make a new account. I got a e-mail checking program.
Maybe, just maybe... MSN has already been taken over by Windows Live, and now this 'live hotmail' software, after installing and running it, automatically imports any information from MICROSOFT OUTLOOK. If you don't have microsoft outlook installed, this 'live hotmail' software can't function. And also, I've had several people tell me over the past few days that they can't even sign up for Hotmail, for the first time. They only get this program. I just think that Hotmail is now Microsoft's puppet to get people to use Outlook, since now it appears that Hotmail's web-based Email is about to be extinct. That's what I've figured out so far.
I'm still a bit confused as to what is REALLY going on with hotmail, because everyone I know can't make a new account for web-based Hotmail, including me.
is it possible to still keep my old hotmail account and use it at the same time as using a new live account? I still want to use my account but get a new one aswell.
I have had the same server address for years when I logged onto my hotmail it would say something like(by111w.bay111.mail.live) now a new server address comes up on the same account something like(co119w.co/119.mail.com).why?? do you randomly switch servers..Pleas explain these numbers and what they mean
as soon as i click on the sign up button next page comes which asks me to download some stuff and after downloading also the process of creating a new account does not begin pls try it yourself
Hi!I had a free hotmail acct.address [personal email address removed] but recently i ws very busy and had not opened it so now it seems to be blocked/inaccessible.What should i do?Thanks.
I do you the courtesy of reading four9 free) letters and find them useful-especially for simpler things 'either orgotten or bigger problems i didn't know I had in the first place!
For which-much thanks!
Please do me the courtesy of acceptng that I HAVE SUBSCRIBED (or I wouldn't be reading U ) and cuit out the pup-ups asking me to subscribe-or I fear I will be driven to unscribe......
My husband is trying to access his hotmail account from my computer. It won't let me sign out! It keeps coming back to the page with my hotmail account asking for my password. At work, I can go to his hotmail just fine; it's just on the home computer.
