Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client. Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.

Blocked Attachments
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.


Forward Workaround While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead. Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.

Compression Workaround

Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.

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.

Unable to receive emails from certain contacts


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.
