If you don't use your hotmail address for more than three months your account will be deactivated automatically in such a case you log through your MSN or windows live messenger with this same address and reactivate your hotmail if not possible you may contact msn authority to reactivate your account, they will do it if its not deleted account for some reason.

Are you using to access your mail via a network where there is firewall or proxy blocked for accessing hotmails and other mails.

If you got a stand alone machine and internet access please check your security setting and change it to low or medium and check its working

I would agree to most of the solutions but to be on the safe side contact MSN and find out exactly what really happened to your account. If it's disabled then enable it through the call center and tell to enable the account because you want to access and use your account.

Try and access Hotmail through their website. If you can access through the website, but not though pop3 programs - such as OUtlook and Outlook Express, your pop3 preferences might be inaccurate or disabled from the hotmail side.

When sending emails how do i type in my email address


Email address is made up of two parts

yourid@domainname of your email provider.

So jamesridel@Hotmail.com

Is email address of James Ridel whose provider is Hotmail.com.

The separation character is the @ symbol.

The email provider does not have to be your Internet provider.
Normally you set up an email account and your email address is put in for you, as "From:xxxx@xxxx"
You just have to put in who you want to send it to.

Unblock hotmail


If all else fails - try recreating your Hotmail -which will tell you that the user name is taken. and you can call them to fix it or you can create a new email address - unless you already have a second email address - then send Hotmail a email saying that your Hotmail was hijacked or hacked. this will get your Hotmail unblocked.

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 can sign in to Hotmail, but I can't open any of the messages

I need to learn how to send and recive email when you have a email address but dont know what to push


Web email? - Go to that email service website. Like Yahoo Mail, Gmail, or Hotmail. Log in, but you will need a password.

Your email will indicate where to go. Example: xxxxxx@yahoo.com. Yahoo is the email service and domain.

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

I have been using windows live mail for several months for two email accounts. My hotmail account works fine but for my second westnet account (www.westnet.com.au) i am able to recieve email but unable to...


G'day,

All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.

If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?
