Unable to access my emails


Which email account ?
Most email users experience that dread of realizing they can't access their messages at some point, but the trick is not to panic.

Microsoft has procedures in place to help you get back into your Hotmail and see what is waiting for you in your inbox.

Check you username and password.
Hotmail passwords are case sensitive, so something as simple as having your caps lock on can keep you from accessing your account.

Double check to be sure you are typing both your username and password exactly how you created them.

Reset your password. If you haven't logged into your Hotmail in some time and suspect you might be using the wrong password, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Hotmail log-in page.

On the next screen, follow the prompts to enter your email address and the given security verification code.

Click "continue" and on the next screen, select the option that allows you to answer your pre-set security question.

This is a question you supplied when you set up your Hotmail account.
After correctly answering the question, you will be prompted to reset your password.

Clear your browser history and temporary Internet folders if you are continually getting a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" message when you log in.

The exact procedure for doing this depends on your operating system and browser.
If you continue to get see this message, it could indicate a problem with the Hotmail server.

Check the status of the network on a site like Down Right Now that reports server problems on popular sites.

Submit a support request on the Windows Live page.
On the Windows Live site, select "Hotmail" under "Standard Services."
A search screen will open that will allow you to check out a variety of Hotmail related support topics.

At the bottom of that screen, choose "get more help" and then "support."
A support form will open for you to complete and submit to the Hotmail team.

You will receive an answer within 24 hours.
Note that you will need a second email account that you can access so that the Hotmail support staff can send you your answer.

I forgot my pattern password and my email password


Pattern Password ??????
Which email account ?????...
Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to Yahoo.com and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to Hotmail.com.
Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
You'll be asked to enter your email address.
Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
Click "Continue."
Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
Do not exit from this page.
You will need it later.
Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
Enter the confirmation code that you received.
Click "Next."
Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

Shaw webmail login


Which email account there are many ?

It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page.
Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

Hotmail have a forgotten password link but you must have another email adress to send your forgotten password to

My hotmail wont let me send any messages this is what it says when im trying to this account is currently blocked from sending messages, what can i do to solve this?


The message is coming from hotmail and not your computer.
for some reason hotmail has blocked your email account. This happens sometimes when your email account gets compromised usually due to a virus or worm. you have to contact hotmail support. If its due to a virus or worm they're going to tell you to remove it first and they may not reactivate the account again. But first try changing your password if that doesn't work use the Windows Live Validation Page to reset your password https://windowslivehelp.com/PasswordReset.aspx

Good luck

Hi i'm hoping you can help me. My hotmail has recently stopped letting me log in. i know my password is correct, it stopped letting me access my e-mail's about two weeks ago i would imagine. I have no...


Can you log into MSN if you have it? because if not, I'm afraid to say that it would be your password details by the sound of what has happened. The two are strongly related and if your hotmail and facebook have stopped working then most likely someone has got hold of your password(s) and changed them, otherwise it would be a extreme coincidence that the two were not related to password theft. The best thing to do is to create a new hotmail account and immediately let all your contacts know about the false account someone has hacked into and have a stronger password which is numbers and symbols such as % or ! in your password to prevent it from being easily found out. If you can login, refere to the hotmail technical support and let them know the situation, but it seems unlikely because you also mentioned problems with facebook

Hope this helps you
