You can get a new email from www.gmail.com sign up for a email, and write the details down, hotmail is unlikely to give your account back without spending alot of effort on it... 
so I would personally suggest opening a new account at www.gmail.com and write the details down and you should do great over there.

How do I restore my e-mail account?


Which email account there are many ?
gmail , yahoo , outlook express , hotmail , ........


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.
For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.
Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.
If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.
Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.
Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.


The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account. If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.


Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.

Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.


Click on "I can't access my account."


Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.
These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.
Yahoo will give you your user ID.


After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.


Start using your old Yahoo email account.

MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.
Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.


Click on "I have forgotten password"


Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.
If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.
Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.


Enter a new password.


Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.

Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."


Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."
If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.
Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.


Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.


Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

I forgot my password on my yahoo mail


Hi penlih

FORGOTTEN YAHOO MAIL ACCOUNT PASSWORD

When you set up an e-mail account with free public e-mail services such as Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail/Live or Gmail, you are invited during the setup procedure to enter an Alternat(iv)e E-Mail Address. The purpose of this is to provide an address to which the Support Team of the E-mail Service Provider can send a link or code (or both) to enable users who have forgotten their passwords to reset their passwords.

Go to the Log In/Sign In page of the e-mail account you are having problems with and click on "Forgotten Password". Enter your alternative e-mail address and then submit a Password reset request. You may also be asked some security questions in order to verify you as the account holder. Once you have accessed and opened the Yahoo! Mail e-mail sent to the alternative e-mail address, click on the link inside and you will be allowed to reset your password.

To avoid mistyped password errors, this time, before you enter the new password, type it into a text or e-mail and then copy and paste that into the password box before submitting it. Send the text or e-mail containing the password to yourself or to your other, functioning e-mail address and save this e-mail in a discreet folder on your cellphone.

Unfortunately if, for any reason, you are unable to access the alternative e-mail address or accurately answer all the security questions, then you will never be allowed access that account again, unless you can remember and enter the correct Username, Password and Security Question.

In that event, however, there is nothing to stop you opening another Gmail account. Only the Username/E-Mail Address will have to be different.

I hope this helps.

I HAVE FORGET MY SECRETE QUESTION


Hi...........


Hello................


Problem with the yahoo mail?????????


  • I believe this will only work if you have an alternate email address, when you had setup your account with yahoo. Go to Yahoo! Help Central and at the bottom it should show Contact Customer Care. You need to have a back up email addresss so you can contact them. That's where you would go if you needed to contact them for any reason, and they really do email you it took my a couple of days before i could get me a new password, because i had to reason with them.
  • depends on the site. most have some type of profile that you can edit. since you can login just find and update your profile.


good luck n enjoy.......
