    I have just written you a note of explanation, then I clicked on Helpful, when all I had written disappeared. Did it reach you?

The only solution is to contact Hotmail support. Unfortunately, there is no other way if you have not set up an alternate enail address where your new password can be sent.

    Why a "Thanks For Trying" rating? That's a negative rating. There is nothing anyone can do about this. The ONLY people who can help here are Hotmail Support. If there was anything I could do regarding this from my end, I would definitely do so. Thats why I'm here :)

    I request you to kindly revise the rating to at least "helpful" which is neutral rating. Thank you.

Can't find the correct name


Your account might have been hijacked ??..

Hotmail is one of the older free Web-based email services.
Unfortunately, its age and its popularity can make it a target for hackers and other online troublemakers.
If your Hotmail account is hijacked, the hacker may change your password to keep you from logging back in to the account.
Fortunately, Microsoft gives users the opportunity to prove that a hijacked account is really theirs so that changed passwords and stolen accounts can be recovered by their rightful owners.
Attempt to log in to your Hotmail account.
If you receive a message saying that your username or password is incorrect, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link under the password field.
A page will load giving you three options for resetting your password.
Click the "I Think Someone Else Is Using My Windows Live ID" option on the password reset page.
Click the "Reset Your Password" link in the instructions that appear.
Enter your Hotmail account address in the "Windows Live ID" field and type the characters that appear in the captcha image in the "Characters" field.
Click "Next" to continue the password reset process.
Select an option for resetting your password when prompted.
If you have a secondary email account included with your Hotmail account, clicking "Email Me a Reset Link" will send a link to that account which lets you reset your password.
Clicking "Security Question" prompts you with the security question you set up previously, allowing you to reset your password after answering correctly.
If neither of these options work for you, click "Customer Support" to contact Hotmail customer support and have your password reset.
Click "Next" after selecting an option.
Enter a new password when you receive access to the password reset screen.
Hotmail recommends that you create a strong password with a combination of letters, numbers, symbols and varying capitalization to make it more difficult for would-be hijackers to guess it.
Run a thorough antivirus and spyware search on your computer to make sure that you don't have a keylogger or other password-theft software installed on your PC
Such software could allow a hacker to gain access to your account again after the password has been reset.

This could be several problems like may be you have forgot your email id or email id's password or your email server is not responding at that movement or someone has hacked your account or your email server has blocked your account. So , please tell the accurate reason or message which are you facing.

I can't get into my hotmail acct. My ID is correct and so is my password,but it keeps saying my password is incorrect. I've had this acct for years. Please,help it's etters718@hotmail.com


If you put in your information on an untrustworthy site, your email may have been hacked. You can try clicking "forgot your password?" or "Forgot Password" and request to enter a new one. Also, make sure Caps Lock is off when you enter it.

How to set up your hotmail account on samsung jet. i am on o2. it keeps telling me that i need an incoming server type (POP3 or IMAP4) an incoming server & outgoing server(SMTP) i assume that these are...


I have the following (and complete) list of settings on my Jet for my hotmail account and it is receiving and sending emails correctly. (After seeing 6 posts and none with a full solution, something needs to be done .. RAGE!!)
Account name - "random name" SMTP sever - smtp.live.com SMTP port - 25 Secure Connection - TLS Incoming Server Type - POP3 POP3 Server - pop3.live.com POP3 port - 995 APOP login - unchecked Secure connection - SSL Download limit - 50 IMAP4 incoming email - New (faded out tho) Retrieving option - Subject only Keep on server - checked My address - me@hotmail.com User name - me@hotmail.com Password - **my hotmail acc password** POP before SMTP - unchecked SMTP auth. - checked Same as POP3/IMAP4 - unchecked User name - me@hotmail.com Password - **my hotmail acc password**
Some tech info to help problem solve. POP3 is the technology involved with receiving email, SMTP is involved with sending. (Lots of people saying they could receive but not send, but their SMTP settings weren't correct)

Hello, i purchased the bookkeeper 2009. installed on computer. followed all directions. 1st time i set it up iwould not allow me to use the password i had selected. ok, so i unistalled the program...


I hope the "password" you're trying to use isn't actually the CD key. If you're putting your password into the CD key column then it'll never work, check the side of your box for that.

If not, then make sure you're registering with the correct information. If you're registering with an email address then check it and see if there is a confirmation email. If not then make sure you're typing everything correctly.
