Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

Sometimes, the user (the contact) update their names that they would like to show when other messenger contacts add his/hers contact to messenger . That´s means your contact name get reset to the default what the contact may have been chosen. You can always edit the name again by right-click on the name and choose edit name.

BTW: It happens some times that the contact names get reset of other reasons (bugs)

Hope it helps
IF NOT then try to return here

Have a nice time over there

Please rate my answer

My husband and I share a yahoo email but when we send a message, only his name shows up in receiver's inbox. How can we make both our first names show up in receivers' inboxes?


You can't. The display name comes up because your email address in the recipients Contact list with only the name 'Scott Hutch'. If they change the Contact name to Gail and Scott Hutch, that is what you will see. When there is no Contact, you just see the email address.

How do i set up an email account


MSN boasts its free email service, Hotmail, as the "efficient way to do e-mail."
Indeed, MSN offers several perks such as advanced security protection, email accessibility with your cell phone and one-stop inboxing, or the ability to bring all your email addresses together.
Once you complete the process of setting up an account with MSN, you'll be able to use your new Hotmail email address.

Open up your Internet browser to the MSN "Create your email address" page.
Select the country or region of the world you live in.

Choose the name you would like to appear before the "@hotmail.com" part of the address. Besides letter and numbers, you can also use hyphens, periods and underscores to personalize your email address.
Press "Check Availability" when you have typed in your desired name to make sure it is not already claimed.

Create a password for your account; your password must have six or more characters.
You'll be prompted to type in your desired password twice.
To protect yourself from identity theft and fraud, you should create a strong password for your email account.

Select a security question from the pull-down menu and provide the answer to the question.
In case you forget your password, you'll be able to retrieve that information upon giving the correct answer.
Or, provide another email address that you use; MSN will send your forgotten password to that email address.

Provide your personal information such as your name, birth date, gender, state, zip code and the time zone you live in.
Enter the characters you see on your screen for verification purposes.
Read through Microsoft's service agreement and online privacy statement and click "Accept" when you are done.
Navigate to the "Sign In" page for Hotmail.
Type your user name (name@hotmail.com) and password in the appropriate spaces; click "Sign In."
Now you are ready to use your MSN email address.

My hotmail account has been blocked


I would get another one or contact Hotmail support for blocked email support and solution, please read below for another option if you just cannot get another account and have to have the old one.

Hotmail accounts do not get blocked unless the account has been used to mass mailing or other illicit use. If you did not mass mail or other illicit behavior, I suggest that your account was hacked.

If your MSN/Hotmail Account has been hacked!

If your MSN Account has been hacked, go to MSN email support:
https://support.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=wlid&ct=eformts&scrx=1

You have to give all information about your problem and about your identity:
* Your e-mail (the "Windows Live ID").
* Your first name and full name.
* Your date of birth (month / day / year).
* Your country.
* The state, province or department in which you reside.
* Your zip code.
* The IP address of each computer used to access your account, or the most commonly used. To find your IP address, visit : http://www.monip.org/
* The answer to your secret question (if you don't remember it, notify it).
* Emergency address email registered for this account (if no emergency address, notify it).
* Your Internet service provider (at work or at home).
* The date and approximate time of your last login.
* The information below:
o For Windows Live Hotmail user :
? Examples of files names which you created in addition to those existing by defect
? Examples of contacts contained in your address book.
? Examples of old email titles contained in your inbox folders or messages.
o For Windows Live Messenger user :
? Examples of contacts contained in your contact list.
? The nickname under which you appear on Windows Live Messenger.
VERY IMPORTANT ! Write your request in a clear and understandable English, avoiding the SMS language, spelling and abbreviations !

Remember and do not forget that this is the only way you can expect to recover your account!
I do hope that this assisted you with this matter! Thanks for using FixYa! John

Want yahoo mail sent to my MSN mail inbox


I guess what you mean is how you can import your messages to MSN mail box. You can only import or export your contacts vice versa.

The easy way although quite tedious is to go to your inbox and forward the messages to your email address in your MSN mail.

e.g open your inbox ....... click the message and open it.
click the forward button and type in your MSN email address and click send.

Another quicker way although not tested is to convert your yahoo email to the yahoo classis email. it has better features to forward many messages simultaenously

Addresses in outlook express


When adding Contacts to your Outlook Express, add the Display Name and Email address (double check that the email address is accurate) then, press the save button at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side. By pressing the Add button, you are telling the program that you wish to add a second email address for this person (Contact) and this may be what is causing your issue when trying to access contacts. Give it a try and if it works, please rate my response. Thanks!

I have forgotten my msn password and despite trying all the obvious answers i can't find the right answer to my secret question. I have another msn email account under the same name so i can verify that...


You have 2 options here:

1. If you supplied an alternate email address, select that instead of providing answers to questions on the forgot your password link. This will email a password reset email to that email address.

2. Contact MSN and see what you guys can do. They will have you verify information. Go to this link:

https://support.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=wlid&ct=eformts&scrx=1

to report a problem.
