Solved: Change time format of Hotmail account?

Q: Solved: Change time format of Hotmail account?

I'm having a time format problem in my Hotmail account.

Basically, I'm in the UK but I created a US Hotmail account. This is causing a time problem. When it says I receive an email at 1pm UK time, when I check my inbox, it actually says I received it at 8am Eastern US time (it's always -5 hours).

I have put up with it, but it's getting a bit of a problem lately. Surely there is a way you can change the time format of you account? I honestly cannot see this option anywhere though. I mean, what if you were travelling out of the country? Surely, the option should be there to alter the time to the country you're in, etc?

Many thanks if you can help.

EDIT: Aha, I've figured it out. If I change my country/region to the UK, it sorts itself out =)

I went into my Hotmail account this morning, read a message ok and then while I was moving it to a folder, my AV told me I had a "VBS - Malware (Script)" virus (getmsg[1].htm). I moved it to the chest eventually after having to reboot and run my AV. Everything ok at this point. I then went back online, went into several websites ok but then loaded my Hotmail account and immediately the AV virus message came up again - this time the file was "hotmail[1].htm".

Does this mean my account is permanently corrupted? The rest of the internet seems to be working ok.

Thanks - Geoff

Maybe it is your hotmail account.....maybe someone hacked into it?

You could always try making a new account, opening it on your computer and seeing if another virus is immediately detected. It might be something on your computer that corrupted your account.

I just got married and my wife would like to change the name of her hotmail account, which has her maiden name as part of it, to contain her new last name. I'm not at all sure how--or in fact if--this can be done without simply opening a new account, but if we do that, she would lose her old emails, contacts, and so on. I'd be grateful for any help you guys could give me.

A:Wife would like to change name of hotmail account to married name

Suggestion--keep the old account, open a new one.

In the old account forward (new) messages to the new account and export the contact list to a csv file.

In the new account import the contact list from the csv file.

To get existing (old) messages to the new account probably requires manually forwarding each one. If she decides to just leave the old messages where they are she will have to login to the account every couple weeks or so or the messages will be deleted.

When I was installing and setting up WCP, I could not get it to recognize my Windows Live ID hotmail address (I don't know why), so I set it up with a new hotmail address. I figured "no big deal... I'll just set up a new hotmail account later and change my Windows Live ID to match it". Hah. Big mistake. Now I cannot get hotmail to give me that account name... it's already taken (yeah, I know... by me!)

This is a mess. How do I change the hotmail address on my administrator account to my old, original hotmail address? How do I do it? (And no, I do not want to just create a new user account on my PC)

Sorry for the length of this post but I think it needs explaining.

I bought this laptop for a gift to my grandson about three years ago. Against my wishes, he has used it primarily to play high usage PC games. About 6 months ago it was hardly working anymore, viruses, malware, you name it.

I did a complete factory restore but he set it up to open with his hotmail user account on the "Lock Screen" in Windows 8.1, but he did give me his how hotmail email address and password so I can login. Well, within about two months later he had all the same issues back again and so he just quit using the laptop completely.

He gave it back to me and I cleaned everything up again (without doing a factory recovery) and also upgraded it from the original Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

Everything is working perfectly, it's very fast now and I love it.

Only issue I can see is if he (my grandson) deletes or changes his hotmail account I won't be able to login and also his emails are available for me to read (but I don't) and I don't use his email account. I use a webmail account of my own.

As I mentioned earlier, this laptop is running and set up perfectly for me with this one exception.

Without doing a complete factory recover, how can I chnage this laptop from requiring his (my grandsons) hotmail address and password to no login being required at all (as I am the only user now) or to run with a local account (as I believe it is referred to)?

Hi,
I have a Windows 8.1 system on a lap top that was used by a former employee. Her name was still on user name and I couldn't change it without Admin privileges (otherwise was asking for a smart card). Found out how to get in to admin in safe mode with Net
User Admin yes- then discovered that the old log in and information / desk top is no longer available. The docs are under Users (old employee's name) in C drive, but the docs and settings no longer show up and the admin log in is the only one available - no
option to change users.
When I went in and said Net User Admin no - thinking if I disabled admin user it would go back to the old log in -  there was no log in available at all.

Recently one of my Hotmail accounts must have been hacked, because when I try to enter it, I get a message "It appears somebody else is already logged on". Have two other accounts and they work fine.

Question is, what can I do to enter this unusable account again. Microsoft detected my attempts to get in and sent me a message that they had locked the account and I need to fill out a form to regain entry. Unfortunately, the type of information they want has not been enough, because I do not remember the e-mail addresses of the last 3 or 4 messages I sent out.
I also do not know the titles of those messages which is what MS wants to verify I am the owner of the account.

Any ideas?
I have tried Googling the name of one of the people I sent an e-mail to, but every one of those services I encountered sooner or later wanted money for his e-mail address. Since I do not know the person's home address or phone number, have no way of contacting them to send me an e-mail to an alternate Hotmail account. Same thing with the other dozen or so contacts in that account.

Since this has happened, I wonder how safe the other Hotmail accounts are and how I can make a backup of the e-mail
addresses of all my contacts on them, so that if something like that happens, I am not "Lost in Space".

My Hotmail account has started sending out random spam mail to people who are listed in my contacts. One friend has had 15 of these emails in one day. The emails have no subject and only contain a weblink which is usually different with every mail sent out - e.g. http://caribbean-vacation-rent.com/indexi.html

As I am completely oblivious to these emails being sent and I have no control over them, I am at a loss as to what to do. Deleting the account completely would seem to be the sure way of stopping this but as I have that email address registered with a number of online forums etc. I am reluctant to do this.

Would removing my friend's email addresses from the contact list be a solution?
 

A:Solved: Hotmail account sending out spam

Not got hotmail, but I had the same thing happen with a Gmail account of mine, that I normally access through OE, so don't go into the web interface.

Turns out that someone in China had logged into it and sent spam to all the contacts. How they worked out the password is beyond me, presumably a security flaw in Gmail. But that's what I'd suspect. Hotmail, like Gmail, will let you check who logged in when and where from if you look at the bottom of the page (I guess).
You'll need to change yr password and security details. They already have yr address book so no point in deleting that.

Since this morning, I can no longer log into my hotmail account or into my account on a website where one can upload texts from one's home computer and post them on said website. If I try to log in, all I get is "page cannot be displayed" each time. It doesn't make a difference whether I use Internet Explorer or Firefox. I can only log into hotmail and into the text-website if I deactivate Windows Firewall and use my VPN client instead (the VPN client doesn't work with the firewall on). So I tried logging in without Windows Firewall and without the VPN client - it didn't work. So I don't know where the problem lies. I have never had it before. My computer runs on Windows XP Home SP2 with the latest patches installed. There are no viruses or spyware...not that I can see, anyway. I am posting my hijack log just in case, though.

My main hotmail account lets me log in but will not go to my mailbox. It keeps giving me an error message that the account is "temporarily unavailable" and to try again later. Well, I have been trying again later since this happened on Tuesday (it's now Thursday) to no avail. I have written a couple notes to Hotmail and included my telephone number in case they wanted to/need to contact me - but nothing yet. I cannot find a telephone number to call them.

My other hotmail account seems to be working fine so its probably not my computer (although that is the old hotmail - the one I'm having problems with is the new hotmail windows live version).

I have done a system restore back to January thinking it might help - but no change.

Virtually everything I help other folks with I can find an answer to, but this one has me tearing my hair out.

Where I live in Spain we often get power cuts. Each time it happens I have to re-enter passwords for all the PC forums I help on and my Hotmail account, that was only a minor irritation, but now Hotmail has changed its security measures and made it a big irritation.

After the power has failed, PC is rebooted and when I try to sign into Hotmail I enter my email address and password and it takes me to a page that says "You haven't signed in from this location recently" that alone is hard to understand as I am using my hotmail account every single day.

It then asks for me to verify the account and sends me a text message, I enter the code number received and submit it only to be taken back to the same page again. I've done this verification several times and it just goes around in a never ending circle.

I end up having to select the option "I can't verify my account", fill in all the details and then later in the day or the next morning my account is accessible again, but only until there is another power cut and I have to go through the same routine all over again. I've tried to add my desktop PC as a trusted PC but it says I need to have Windows Essentials installed, so I installed it, rebooted and still got the same message.

hi, recently my hotmail was used to send out spam to a big list of people most of which i dont know. I have the hotmail linked via pop3 to a mozilla account on this computer, so i ran a malware scan and hope one of the techs here can check it over and see if anything stands out. in the meantime i have changed my hotmail passwords on a clean computer so it doesnt happen again.

there is a few programs on this list that may cause concern, i run a web server from time to time which has only local network access and use VNC enterprise to assist various family members, this has WAN access.

i havent had any other problems other than this rogue hotmail hijack so im fairly sure my system is ok but i'd rather get it looked over by a pro,

Some Hotmail account holders can't read their mail. How old are their pcs and software? I can read my mail but can't reply or create new messages: I have Windows XP and have my pc for about 7 years I think. A friend can read and send messages but can't print messages, or copy and paste messages in order to print them. So she has fewer problems than I have, and she has had her pc for about 3 years. (I have this week, following advice received, 'optimised my browser'; this was no help). Are people's different problems related to the age of their machines and systems? I assume the very troublesome new Hotmail was developed using Vista and other recent software.

I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows XP Prof. I installed Outlook Connector 12.1 and added my hotmail and MSN accounts. Both showed up in my mail folders list and both connected to the web and downloaded just fine.

When I tried to Send/Receive just my hotmail account, it was not listed in the Send/Receive group, so I checked the Email Accounts list. The hotmail account is not listed in my Email Accounts list (tools, Email Accounts, View/change), yet it is showing in the Mail Folders. I can send mail from that account if I hit reply on a received message but not if I try to select that account on a new message. I uninstalled Connector, and removed MSN from the list but I cannot remove hotmail as it’s not on the list of accounts. When I try to close the folder (right click, close [email protected]) I get an error saying to use the Email Accounts list to remove it...but it’s not on the list.

Any idea how to remove an email account that shows up in the Mail Folders but is not listed as an account in the Email Account list? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to TSG!

Try this:

In Outlook's Account Settings window, go to the Data Files tab and select your Personal Folders and click Open Folder.

In the window that comes up you should see a file named emailid_hotmail.ost. Close Outlook and delete this file.

Reopen Outlook to see if Hotmail account is gone.

A:[SOLVED] Hotmail account spammed address book

I should add that the infection that happened last week was due to a pop up that I clicked on that was disguised as the MSE security software. I did click on the link, but backed out & shut down through the task manager before completely downloading. I'm afraid it was too late, though.

Nothing was changed in Hotmail to my knowledge, i.e. contact list was not deleted. I deleted the contents myself and left only a second email I use to see if more messages get sent out. So far nothing today....


I hope I'm being thorough enough, but if I could provide anything more, please let me know.

Thank you,
Beth

I have 2 Hotmail accounts with MSN. My primary account I pay for (MSN Plus or something) & the other is basic and free. I'm paid up on the primary account.
I have 2 IBM Thinkpads, a T41(XP Pro) & a T21(Windows 2000). I opened Outlook Express this morning & found 1 new email-- from eBay (it had my correct user name so I don't think it is a spoof). I tried to delete it but it wouldn't delete. A window says: An Unknown Error Has Occured. So I closed Outlook Express & accessed my primary Hotmail account through the internet. I tried to delete the message there. It seemed to delete and got as far as the trash but when I tried to empty it, it re-appeared in its original place-- as an unopened email. I was not able to delete any other emails.
I was able to send an email to my secondary Hotmail account.
But when I opened the secondary account & sent an email to my primary account, it was not received. Also, I always receive an email from Dictionary.com with a new word each morning and nothing came. So I'm concluding that somehow my primary Hotmail account is stuck or blocked.
Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Thanks! -M
 

A:Solved: My hotmail account is stuck, not receiving emails

Turns out it was a glitch on their end. the problem persisted throughout the morning but "magically" cleared up. I believe it was some problem with their server.

I'm not happy with MS wanting another email/phone for email access; however, gave them another email account to keep mine.

However, now when I log into the email - I can only get my account info, not the email. I've logged out several times and back in.

I seen nothing to route me to my email when I'm in account info.

Please, how can I access my email?

A:[SOLVED] can't get hotmail email - only account info when logged in

are you logging with a hotmail/outlook/live account
OR
are you using another email address
MS allows any email to be used to register as a MSAccount (changes since windows 8) and so you could register with a gmail.com account
BUT
you wont get any email access as the email server is provided by gmail and not MS

Have you tried using the extensive filter and spam blocking on Hotmail?

If you are usiing OE also go to it and export your address as an .csv file then go to this url and import them to your new hotmail account.

I can’t access my HOTMAIL accounts- HOTMAIL support?

I learned about Microsoft’s new policy of not allowing you to send email from Hotmail using it’s own products Outlook and Outlook Express unless you are paying an additional fee, when I replied to a (Hotmail) email while using OE. After sending my reply I received an error message that OE could not access the account. It then proceeded to DELETE all my previous email message in outlook express for this account.

A web search then led me discover that this account was one of those now requiring payment of a fee to send mail using Outlook or OE instead of logging on to the website. (They are doing this in stages so some HOTMAIL accounts still allow the free use and access with Outlook/OE.)

I then tried to sign on to my account using another Microsoft product Internet Explorer- initially everything looked unchanged,

1. however after typing in my name and password instead of opening my account

2. I got a new screen of “scrambled letters” designed to prove that a person and not a machine is accessing my account.

3. I type in these scrambled letters and one of two things happens:

a. (Usually) I receive yet another screen of scrambled letters to input

b. (Occasionally) I receive the “sign in screen” again EITHER WAY

A:I can't acces my HOTMAIL account- Hotmail Tech Support?

I've never used Outlook or Outlook Express in any form my self, so I can only offer some limited suggestions for sorting this out.

First: have you tried deleting all cookies and accessing the account? If using XP/2k -- it may even be helpful to try creating a new User Profile and logging in under that, this will ensure you have an entirely new web cache, index.dat and cookie folder.

Try accessing the account from another computer and see if you get in that way.

After years of transferring .doc files as attachments to e-mails in my Hotmail account, all of a sudden things have changed. The files only open in an app of some kind that doesn't allow me to print, requires several steps in order to edit online, and doesn't allow me to edit the file in WORD unless I download WORD 2010, which I am loathe to do. What is going on and is there any work-around that actually gets me back to where I was a happy user?

It seems to me that the only way I can access my Hotmail account with Windows 8.1 is by using Windows Live Mail 2012. I set up the Outlook.com account and that works fine, but the Hotmail account does not send or receive emails. I get 'logon messages' asking for my password all the time. I tried to set up the Hotmail account using the same WLM settings as on my desktop computer with Win 7, but the categories are not the same for Win 8.1 and the info cannot be entered. I have tried to follow the suggestions that I have seen in other threads, but they haven't helped.
Right now, I have the following settings for my Hotmail: My ID is my Hotmail address, along with my password that I use; the incoming server is POP3; the server field is pop3.live.com with SSL checked and port 995; the outgoing server is smtp.live.com with port 25, with the SSL box checked. My desktop computer WLM 2012 is set up as follows: the ID's etc are my Hotmail addresses and passwords, but there is a server URL....http://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx[/url] instead of outgoing and incoming servers etc. There is no Advanced tab here as in Win 8.1.
I hope my explanation is not too confusing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

if you log into your hotmail account are the emails there

Why not allow hotmail to automatically setup
it works OK on WLM 12 on 8.1 I have set up quite a few hotmail/outlook accounts

A:Solved: change date format in excel

If the column is actually a date (not text) then highlight the column and go to Format, Cells. Select the Number tab and then click on the Date format. A list of formatting options will appear and you should find what you want.
If it doesn't work, do the same thing and select Number. If you actually have dates typed in, then 20100410 would show as 40278.00 - if it is text, it will show as 20100410.00.
