Hi, Resetting password in Hotmail is a little tricky. Here are the steps that you can do:

  • Go to the Windows Live Hotmail Reset password page
  • Type the Email address that you want to reset
  • Carefully type the captcha characters on the box
  • Click next or continue
  • Answer the account information and answer the secret question.
  • Click continue.
  • (IT would be advisable to change your password periodically to avoid issues with the password.)
  • If Hotmail still log you into your account automatically and you want to change your (forgotten) password, click Send yourself a password reset e-mail message. and click Send Message.
  • If you have provided an alternate email (try creating a temporary alternate email address to retrieve the email to reset your password) for your Windows Live Hotmail account, you can also send the password reset email to that address. Choose Send yourself a password reset e-mail message. and click Send
  • IT will ask some information about your location (in case your out of the country) and update the secret question and secret answer. and continue.
  • now you should be able to enter a new password, confirm the new password and continue then done.
Some of the options vary in location. Hope this tips will help you log in again. Cheers!!

I don't know the pass phrase for the U920T Toshiba ultra notebook. It is asking for one once I switch the power on.


If you purchased this new It wanted you to sign in with your Hotmail e mail & password. If you did not you must contact the last owner for his. Then sometimes you can recover your laptop the laptop (or refresh) in the usual Windows 8 8.1 way & remove the password.

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)

I Have forgot my hotmail pass word


Ok, go to http://hotmail.com
Click "Forgot my password"
- Enter your secret answer and then it should tell you your new password.

If you have an alternate email, ask hotmail to send this to your other email, and that'll contain the password. I hope this helped.
