I'm assuming that "send" should be "receive" because you most definitely can send attachments from a Hotmail account, no matter what type, as we'll see in a second.
There are two solutions, neither of them pretty:

  1. Have the sender send the attachment again, with a different name, or as a compressed file. ".zip" files are fine. ".exe" files are not. So if your sender creates a .zip archive of the .exe file that he's trying to send you, that you can save, and then decompress back into it's original form and name.
    Heck, just renaming the file is enough. Have the sender rename the .exe file into a .txt file and send that as an attachment. You'll be able to download it, and then rename it back to a .exe.
  2. Forward the attachment to a non-Hotmail account. Hotmail doesn't mention this approach, but sure enough, even though you can't open the unsupported attachments, you can forward them to a different account on a different service. If that service allows you to open the attachment, you've got it.
Hotmail's goal here is, obviously, to make it difficult to open malware in attachments by accident. You have to take steps of some sort; you have to think about it.
If you go through those steps, and you still get infected? Well, it was your own doing.

Change of email address


The act of changing your email address is simple.
However, you can save yourself a lot of headaches by doing some planning before you begin. Just as with changing your home address, one of the main challenges with changing your email address is making sure that you do not loose any important contacts.
Another challenge to is avoiding bringing your old spam contacts with you.
A third challenge is to find an email address that fits your needs.

Gather your contacts into a single list.
Remember, that you probably have a lot more contacts than just the ones currently set up on your "favorite contacts" list on your email account.
Spend some time going through you email history and identify older contacts that you may not have used in a while, but which you do not want to loose.
Think about your needs before setting up a new email account.
Think about the kinds of attachments you like to send? Do you need higher capacity? Also think about what kind of interface your prefer.
Some prefer a simple, bare-bones interface, while others prefer something more elaborate.
Ask yourself if the address itself is important to you.
Some people are quite picky about this.
Ask yourself what you dislike about your current service.
This will help you to better pinpoint what you desire from your new service.
Check out your options.
There are a lot of free web-based email services out there.
These are great for some purposes, but if you need really high capacity, or require greater security, then you might want to look for a different type of service that you will need to pay for.
Read the privacy policy carefully of any email service you are considering.
Make sure you are not making any commitments you are uncomfortable with.
Test your new address.
Once you set up you new address, have a few close friend email you regularly for a few days to make sure it is really what you want before informing all you contacts.
Send out a single mass-mailing to all your contacts, once you have established your new address, and tested it.
Be careful to weed out all the spammers before you do this.
Keep your old email address active for a while after establishing your new address.
How long you need to do this depends upon how much email traffic you have.
The more traffic, and the more contacts you have, the longer you should keep your address active.
Generally speaking, your should plan to wait at least one month before abandoning you old address. In some cases, you may want to keep checking it for several months. Change Contacts on Hotmail
Hotmail is a free online email service provided by MSN.
Hotmail users can create contact lists in their email accounts, which allows them quick access to the contact information of their friends, families and co-workers.
The contact lists can be easily changed, contacts can be added or deleted, information can be updated and certain contacts can be designated as favorites.
Contact favorites are listed on the inbox menu for easy accessibility when composing emails or instant messaging.

Log into your Hotmail account using your Windows Live ID.
This will open your Hotmail inbox.
Click on "Contacts List" in the left-hand menu.
Click "New" to add a contact to your list.
Type in the contact's name, nickname, address, business information and phone number.
You can also add other information, such as a person's birthday and personal notes.
Click "Save."
Your contact list will be immediately updated with the new contact's information.
Delete a contact by checking the box next to his name.
Click "Delete." Click "OK" to confirm that you wish to delete this contact.
How to Change Hotmail Contact Information
Log into your Hotmail account using your Windows Live ID.
This will open your Hotmail inbox.
Click on "Contacts List" in the left-hand menu.
Check the box next to the contact whose information you wish to change.
Click "Edit." Modify the contact information.
Click "Save" to update the contact's listing.
How to Create or Delete Hotmail Contact Favorites
Log into your Hotmail account using your Windows Live ID.
This will open your Hotmail inbox.
Click on "Contacts List" in the left-hand menu.
Check the box next to the contact that you would like to make a favorite.
Click "Categories" from the top toolbar.
Pick "Favorites" from the drop-down menu.
The contact has now been added to the Hotmail favorites list.
Delete a contact from the favorites list by clicking on "Favorites" in the left-hand menu.
Click the highlighted star in the contact's information box.
The contact is removed from the favorites list.
Transfer Hotmail Contacts
Hotmail is one of the oldest free email services that is still in use today.
However, as other email services have been created, more and more people are choosing to leave Hotmail for greener pastures.
Luckily, instead of having to manually transfer your entire contact list to your new service, create a file that automatically transfers the contacts for you.

Sign into your Hotmail account and go to your inbox.
Click on the link for "Options," which is located on the upper right-hand of your inbox.
Scroll down and click on the link for "More options..." On the new screen, scroll down toward the bottom and click the link to "Export Contacts."

Enter an eight-digit passcode when prompted to save your contacts onto your computer as a .csv file.
After entering the passcode, choose to save the new file on your computer.

Upload the .csv file onto whatever email service you want to use.
Each email service has a different method for importing the contacts, but they all allow the file that is in a .csv format to be uploaded.

I cannot send emails from my hotmail account.


Here are the most common reasons for this problem, which is a common complaint.

Email file attachments problem At the time of writing, Hotmail lets you send email attachments of upto 10MB (free accounts). Are you trying to attach a file that's too large? Also, Hotmail may not send emails with files attachments that it thinks can harm its servers or the recipient's computer. Try sending the message without the attachment and see if it goes through.
You may also be interested in knowing how to attach a large file to an email message.
Browser support If the email composition window doesn't open, the browser you are working on is probably not supported by Hotmail. In this case, use another web browser - there are tens of these programs available for free - check the browser list. The technology behind Hotmail may not work with newly released browsers (has happened before) and really old ones.
A case in point is issue faced by Firefox users who find that Hotmail is not attaching the original message to forwards and replies.
Surpassed the limit set by Hotmail Hotmail would also not send emails if you have surpassed the limit of outgoing messages set by the service. This problem is typically encountered by prolific Hotmail users. Why is an email sending limit set on Hotmail accounts? So that people (the bad ones) do not abuse the system. All online email services are known to be plagued with spammers - people who send tens of hundreds (millions?) of unsolicited messages. Hotmail has an automatic check and if your account triggers it, you would not be able to send emails.
Problem in sending email from a new Hotmail email account Taking the above point forward, to protect itself from spammers, Hotmail sets a lower limit of sending email messages from new accounts. This limit is gradually increased (probably automatically) as time passes. So if you have sent a whole bunch of emails the day you created the account, Hotmail will most likely not understand that you've done is out of excitement; it's going to think you are a spammer and abusing the service.
New users may also need to go through the Windows Live Hotmail email verification process. This is simply to ensure that the address is being operated by a human and not by a spambot and will stop Hotmail from asking you to verify the account each time.
Hotmail account blocked from send email? A Hotmail account can be blocked from sending email if the system believes that the subscriber has behaved like a spammer! So if you get a 'This account is currently blocked from sending messages', please read that article to know more and to get the issue sorted out with Hotmail staff.
Account closed An account closed message is displayed for the same reason - sending more emails in a day than the limit. You can always contact Hotmail support via abuse@hotmail.com email address - which is kind of ironic because if you can't send emails, how can you send one to the support department? And this brings up the important requirement of having multiple email accounts.
Also, though there is a Hotmail phone number (customer service), I suggest you post a complaint at the Windows Live Solutions Center (WLSC) web site.
By the way, since no real human being is actually monitoring your account - it's all automatic - you may have accidently triggered off the limit check. These false alerts should be taken with a pinch of salt (as long as you know you aren't guilty of misusing the service). You can either send an message to the Hotmail staff at the above mentioned email address or visit WLSC.
If everything fails and you still can't send emails from Hotmail - well, your guess is as good as mine. Try sending the email from another account. You can always get a Gmail account for free which works quite like a Hotmail account.
