I've been phished by email, using hotmail, and it has wiped all my contacts from my email address book. Is there any way of recovering these?
If you have been using the web interface to access your Hotmail e-mail, then your contacts are likely lost, unless you have a backup copy on your PC. If you ever exported them from Hotmail, then you can import them back into Hotmail.
There is also a small chance that if you contact Hotmail support, they might be able to restore them if they have a backup copy and you explain your situation; however, it's unlikely that they will spend the time to do so.
If you have been accessing your e-mail via an e-mail client on your desktop, like Outlook or Outlook Express, then there is a chance that you might be able to restore them from the web interface via the Export function.
