Do you have a premum account with Hotmail ??
If yes - then setup outlook express with Hotmail...
if not.. then try this

Use MSN Instant Messenger as your contact management tool. Messenger contacts appear in the Hotmail address book for the same account (though not all Hotmail contacts will appear in Messenger - only those whom you've added to your Messenger contacts). Messenger includes both import and export functions for the contact list. Just log in to Messenger using one account, hit the Contacts menu, Save Contact List and save to a file. Then login to Messenger with a different account, hit Contacts, Import Contacts from a Saved File, load up the file, and you're done.
You may now be able to export from Meseenger and link with you new Hotmail.. Hope this helps.

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.

Want to delete main hotmail/windows account and contacts on my LG-C900K


A popular free email service offered by Microsoft is Hotmail. Setting up a Hotmail account is simple; so is closing one. If your account has been hacked or your email box is inundated with spam, closing the account is an easy remedy. Before closing your email address, alert friends, family members and associates of your plans. You may want to forward them a replacement email address, if you have one, to stay connected.

Go to the MSN homepage. Click on the tab in the upper left corner labeled "Hotmail." Log into your account by typing in your username, password and hitting the "Enter" key. Click on the "Help" key located at the upper right of the page. It will appear as a blue question mark. Select "Table of Contents" from the sidebar on the left. Click on "Setup a Windows Live Hotmail Account." Scroll down to "Close Your Account." It will be located at the bottom of the list. Click on the link that says "Close Account." Hope this helps.

In this case,

1) Contact hotmail about this issue
2) You can go to hotmail and reset your password for a new one (if your security questions still are the same)

3) or get rid of this account and open a new one.

A colleague of mine had his hotmail account hacked and the password changed and the hackers sent out an email to his contacts requesting $ to get him out of a jam!...needless to say, he can't get into his...


All I can think to do (Besides calling Microsoft who currently owns hotmail), is to tell hotmail that you password. If he has another e-mail address he may have put this information in when signing up for his hotmail account. If he tells hotmail he forgot his password, they should send it or a new password to his other e-mail account. If he did not provide them with another account I reccomend calling microsoft.

To solve this one, you'll need to contact hotmail's support staff via email. Click the link below to try and contact them about suspected email account hijacking:
