I used my hotmail account relentlessly in college. I recently went back to retrieve a couple of screenplays I slaved over back then. I had emailed them to myself (I assumed it was a safe place) and they are all gone... I mean, I have ZERO email in my hotmail
account. I just need confirmation... did Microsoft delete all of my years of email for some reason? Is there any way at all to get back some of my writing??
I do not want my Microsoft Account to appear on my new home PC. I looked up turning Off the Microsoft Account options on-line.
I tried to follow the instructions to change from a Microsoft account to a personal account (in Windows 8.1) but the on screen intrusions did not follow the same process that I experienced when trying to complete the change.
(BTW - Why would Microsoft complicate a system that used to work perfectly well in Windows XP with this new system that you seemingly get trapped inside and can't get out of - all I want every time I want to send an email is to go straight to Outlook!).
I find the Microsoft Mail account almost impossible to use and much prefer Outlook - but it keeps taking me to Microsoft Mail - Very annoying.
How do I turn off Microsoft Account for my home PC (Specifically, I do not want business emails being combined with my home email - I already get far too much of both!).
I have a Microsoft Account which is associated with MSDN, TechNet and My Microsoft Exams. But I now want to associated it with an Outlook.com account importing all the profile, Points Earned via MSDN and other forums plus the Exam details to it.
Can this be done?
Hotmail not working in Live Mail - keep getting Server Error 3204 message. Tried Microsoft Fix it 9833174 and, although it said it had fixed the problem it hasn't.
My sister is travelling, she is currently in New Zealand. She has logged into her hotmail email in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and now New Zealand. However recently she got a message saying that Microsoft was suspicious about her recent logins and the
account needed to be verified. I assume this was due to the fact she had changed her location frequently during this time.
She attempted to fill out the form but was told it was rejected. We spoke to a Microsoft Support chat representative who suggested I log into her email in the UK and pass on the details to her so that the form would pass. I took screen-shots of the relevant
sections (folders/sent email etc). And so we are 100% sure that the information provided was correct. However, the form has still been rejected. I was advised to 'escalate' the request, and have sent off two forms to do that. However they were also rejected
and it was suggested that my sister re-submit the form 'from the location she usually accesses her email' despite it being abundantly clear that she would not be able to do that as she was is on the other side of the world, in New Zealand.
My sister needs this email as it includes important flight details/travel itineraries/contacts and is her main way of contact with back home. For this reason, creating a new account isn't really an option. The only suggestion from Microsoft is to re-submit
the escalation request, but that would seem pointless. The information we provided was 100% correct, so it would seem there is a problem on Microsoft's end, rather than ours.
Anyone got any idea how to resolve this/has had the same experience?
I just purchased a new computer with windows 7. When I was inputting my password and the incoming and outgoing data and port #'s, I must have made an error as I received a message from microsoft that an error occured. The error window with instruction
to repair is only partly visable and quite vague on how to fix it. I called Microsoft but as you probably already know, they don't provide live support. They suggested I contact the community.
Would really appreciate any help you might be able to give. I assume that there is a file that can be accessed and edited, but figuring out where is beyond my limited technical abilities.
One hopefully appreciative Senior.
Had a message from Microsoft saying I may have been hacked into. They asked for verification - then the nightmare started. Nothing but nothing would let me back into my account. Various codes were sent to me but nothing has worked. I tried deleting my
account with the intention of reinstating it but my password is not being accepted. Neither is a code. Am at my wits end as I have urgent Emails. My other Hotmail account is fine and so us my Icloud one. Help! help!
We need/want/would like to download such simple programs as "Microsoft Security Essentials" in a Language we can gawdarned READ.
When we go to a Microsoft and have the page and language set to English, and we go to a download, it always appears in some gobbldygook regional language we dont read (and its not just Microsoft).
So HOW in heck do we do it?
Is it really so gawdarned hard to give us a damn CHOICE of the language we want to install in?
Did nobody tell anyone at Microsoft that English is the INTERNATIONAL Buisness language of Choice?
So; Should it not be the SECOND INSTALL OPTION ON ALL PROGRAMS AND/OR ADD-ON`S???
Why does it drag its feet over the issue?
After working 2.5 hours last Thursday, Microsoft finally got my Windows Live Mail 2012 to work, or so I thought. I get the mail ok, but I can't send any out. I keep getting different error messages and no mail will go out. How do I finally get this program
working so that I can get the mail as well as send it out?
There's a new version of Windows Live Writer released; 16.4.3522.0110.
What OFFICIAL updates have been made by Microsoft on the application?
I can tell the name of the application still hasn't been updated to reflect the death the 'LIVE' products, but I'd like to see the
official release notes on the application.
Until next time,
