Q: Problem with hotmail account, account temporarily suspended)

i got this surprise when i was unable to log in into skype then i when to my email and i got this
and after several emails to support i got an answer saying that
"ve verified that a serious violation of the Microsoft Services Agreement occurred on your account .......................   Due to the nature of this violation, and pursuant to the terms of the Microsoft Services Agreement, Microsoft can neither grant you access to the contents of your account,..."
whats next now?
i want to know what happened exactly, and can that be appealed?

Preferred Solution: Problem with hotmail account, account temporarily suspended)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problem with hotmail account, account temporarily suspended)

Ask them for a appeal? The only ones who will know what happened is them. Do you happen to use Skype to send adult content? I hear they have been cracking down on that more.

I have been blocked out my hotmail account since yesterday. I can't get to my emails and need to urgently. The email account has important contact details and am waiting on replies to jobs. When I've tried to go the Microsoft and Windows Forums to post my questions, I am asked for my sign in details! This is the reason why I'm contacting the forum's in the first place - I can't get in - am blocked from my own email.
I have also gone into Internet Options and cleared cookes, deleted browsing history, etc.

Can someone please help me reactivate my email account, restore my account back to me? I can't loose the information that's there. Thanks.

Hello All, This is my first post here and I hope that you all are willing to help out a "newbie" of the forum, because as of right now I am getting fed up with my BLEEPING COMPUTER!!!My computer has been acting a little funny lately...I'm not sure what the issue is, but a lot of my administrative privileges seem to have been changed, ie "You do not have permission to (fill in blank)" If anyone has time to take a look at my hijackthis logfile as well as the adsspy logfile to see if there is anything that looks a little fishy. I have had THREE different instances of my bank account info being exploited and just recently my Hotmail account was hijacked and used as a "mass SPAM sender".

It used to be not connected to any email account but when it updated to 8.1 I chose to get an email address for it, so now as a result, the password has to be 8 characters long and I have to use a PIN number , but that's still 4 characters, and I usually use one character password.

So how do I go back to the normal type of user account to use the 1 character password?

My Outlook.com experienced both yesterdy. I did nothing wrong, have checked for malware and followed all the steps to be normal. I was told I was unblocked then when I sent an email it said I am suspended. After an hour on the phone, to no avail, I tried this am and after verifying I was normalized.
Someone was trying to access my account was the message that popped up.

Has this happened to you and why does this happen if you follow the rules?

I have an Australian Bigpond account and the last couple of days I have been having trouble opening my emails.
I am able to login to my inbox but when I try to open an email I get an error message " User Mail Server Account Suspended". I have tried accessing my emails through the bigpond home page webmail link on my laptop (a windows 8) and on my ipad with safari, both with the same error message.
I contacted bigpond support (thru 24x7 live chat) who remotely accessed my laptop to view my email and told me that I had a malware virus (the heartbleed is the one he mentioned) and I needed to deal with their bigpond platinum service for a fee of $15 per month (for 2yr contract) or $200 for 1 fix. The bigpond support guy said that my account hasn't been suspended but the reason I am unable to access my emails is because of the malware that is on my laptop is stopping any email activity.
I declined this and asked my brother for help, he usually is pretty good at fixing pc stuff. He suggested that I restore my laptop. I have windows 8 and used the refresh option.
After the refresh, I tried to access my emails again but still got the same error message.
A few days ago, I did receive an email, which looked like a bigpond account statement. When I opened this I noticed that it was for an overdue account in another name and account number than my account. I told bigpond about this email but they didn't really seemed worried about it.

On Saturday I got a number of emails to my hotmail account stating that there was a failure to deliver messages to people on my contacts list. A bunch of people that I haven't talk to in years (those accounts no longer existed). Later on this followed by a number of replied emails from random people from my contacts list saying I had sent them a link. I checked my sent messages, there is nothing there.. obviously I hadn't been sending these emails... but I looked on the failed delivery and there are so many contacts from the list that are people i talk to..that must have actually got the email. Some professors, some other students and i don't no how to stop this from happening. It happened again today where someone told me that i sent them an email with a virus looking link in it. This email address is particularly important for my daily work/school functions and i would like to keep it as a reliable means of communication...

To summarize the Problem:
-Sending unintended/ untraceable emails to all my contacts

How can I stop it??

Hi Folks: Dec. 3rd

I was experienceing no problems with accessing my Hotmail account until a few days ago. I think Hotmail has changed their web page because I have noticed, using other computers recently, that it is different.

On my computer I can't even access the webpage now; a couple of days ago, when I had still set Hotmail Inbox as my DEFAULT internet page I was able to see my mail (albeit on a diffent webpage) but I couldn't open any messages. At the bottom on my Status Bar the message reads 'Error Found'whenever i click on a message. On other computers I can access the mail but I can't delete any messages, esp. from my Junk Mail & I can't access the address Book (Contact List) at all.

I have tried a few suggestions from your readers: e.g., checking the Time/Date settings, enabling cookies, etc.
I would very much appreciate any HELP you can give.

Thanks so much.

I keep my Hotmail account open during work so that I can email with my wife (I know, I know - but we don't abuse the privilege and my boss knows I keep it open, ok?). Anyway, for a while now when I've signed in to Hotmail, instead of making a nice neat transition from the login page to my inbox, it would go to a "file not found" page. I had solved this minor issue by simply refreshing the page. Often it would go to a weird looking, text-only version of my inbox, which I would have to refresh again. Then everything would work fine for the rest of the day. This occurred in both IE7 and Google Chrome.
Yesterday, as our resident "tech guy" (as in, happens to know more than anyone else in our company, and only enough to be dangerous), I was tasked with installing an updated version of NOD32 antivirus software. I don't know if these things are related, but now I am unable to access my inbox for Hotmail, in either IE or Chrome.

When I try to go to the log-in page, sometimes I can't even get to it. If I open a new window, I can usually at least get the log in page and enter my username and password. But after I attempt to complete the sign-in process, I get a "HTTP 400 - Bad request" error. In Chrome, it says, "Bad Request (Invalid Verb)".

This happened to me yesterday afternoon, after installing NOD32. When I logged in on both my computers at home last night, I had no problem.

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.

On my laptop PC I don't get any of the above problems and can happily sign in and out of Hotma... Read more

I am using a Yahoo mail account which downloads emails to Windows Live Mail on my desktop.

I am being spammed by Online Casino emails, and despite blocking the senders domain in WinLiveMail, it only lasts for a few days and then returns. Also done the same thing with selective blocking in Yahoo Mail account settings for SPAM blocking but same result.

I tried to contact Yahoo Mail tech support to find out if it's possible to turn off my main Yahoo Mail account for a week or two, as it is the one being spammed, but I get no reply. Apart from FAQ does anyone know how to email or live chat Yahoo Mail support?

I can't use the "Unregister" option in the incoming spam mail, or I'll get inundated with commercial emails.

Also tried various options like Mail Washer, etc.

Can anyone think of an option so I don't see these emails, short of closing the account and creating a new one. The thing is, this is my main account I've used in many online registrations.

The weird thing is I've never been on the web site of Online Casino and never use the main email account in emails or online, except for signing in to things like my ISP, Yahoo Mail, etc.

A:Temporarily turn off email account in Yahoo mail

Yahoo email filters are poor; they only support the model:
block email-id is [email protected]​and spammers continue to reach you by changing the user portion. Better email client software supports that as well as:
block email-id contains @domain​and regardless of the email user, that domain gets blocked

fyi: Thunderbird is my favorite email software

I was curious if anybody knew this. I could not find it anywhere and had never heard of it. Is there a way to temporarily disable an email account? Like a pause button. So if I 'pause' a specific account (I have approx. 6 email accounts in my Outlook, mostly POP3 & Exchange), when I hit Send/Receive it will not be included, but if I 'unpause' it shall be included. Is there a feature like this?

If this is possible I'd like to implement this in a family members of mine computer. So it must be 'stupid proof' if it is.


A:Solved: Outlook: temporarily disable an email account?

So I have an administrator account for maintenance purposes and I also have my frequently used standard account.

Usually, when you right click on a program, for example: Spybot S&D

There is an option to "Run as Administrator".

And if you click it, it prompts for an admin password.

But for me, it does not ask for an admin password, it just ignores the fact that I clicked that completely, and runs it as a standard user.

This happens whenever I need admin privileges for something. I cannot elevate my privileges on a standard user account.

It used to work properly, until I changed my account type to standard, and enabled the Administrator account.

I'm the only user on this laptop and my admin account was called "HybridPC" and I disabled the windows login screen. (Turn computer on and goes right to desktop). One day the welcome screen popped up out of nowhere and I had to login. I tried disabling the login screen to where it was before and now I've screwed things up royally. I cannot login to my original admin account or find it. All the files are still there on my C:\Users\HybridPC folder, but I've lost the profile and user.

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,

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

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

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

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.

This is very strange. A few weeks ago someone in my household created a user account with administrative privileges and changed the other accounts to standard users. Problem is that now we can not log on to the account. It isn't on the log in screen. All I can do it see it through the manage accounts option in the control panel. From here I can attempt to add a password among other things. Since the account I do have access to is standard. What I want to do is, get on the account or get rid of the account. I need administrative privileges on an account I can access. Why can't I see this account on the log in screen?

A:Weird account problem Admin account not at login screen

Hello and welcome Chas mate I would find the culprit and recover the password for that account from whoever it is and change the admin back to what it was previously.

Now given you state it is someone within your household I am thinking this person or persons need a good talking to if that person is still there of course if not then you have a problem.

I don't think even a system restore will do it either.

The alternative is to back up all your data and reinstall.

Now in the log-in screen it displays the new name, but all it did was create another folder in C:/users with the new name, the old folder with the foreign name was still there. What's worse is that this account is STILL linked to the files in the old folder. For example when I edit stuff in Acrobat, my author name would default to the foreign name, or in games it would store cache files in C:/users/[old name]/AppData.
So how do I migrate all the files from C:/users/[old name] to C:/users/[new name], and link this account to the new folder, then permanently delete everything associated with the old account? I don't think I can simply manually delete C:/users/[old name], and expect the computer to magically associate the new account name?

Hi there. It would probably be easier to restore it to an earlier date.

I have a hotmail.com account which is fine.
I also have Outlook Express and can receive mail in Outlook Express from my hotmail account with no problems.

I have just created a hotmail.com account for my friend.
I can receive mail from this new account to my own hotmail account but I am having problems receiving e-mail from this account to my Outlook Express.

NB. It is my friends hotmail address that I want to be able to receive messages from. I can receive them fine from my own hotmail account.

Can anyone please offer any advice.

Thank you Cinders

A:hotmail.com account

If your friend is using the free hotmail service, then you cannot access the account with an editor such as Outlook Express. You can only access Hotmail externally if the account is a paid option.

I'm have trouble logging into my Hotmail account, though others using the same computer can log into their accounts without any difficulty.

When I try, this is what I get in the address line:


and this is the message on the screen:

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

When I try to log in via My MSN, I can view the subjects of the first several e-mails, but can't access them.

When I try to sign in with another of my Hotmail accounts, it says I am already signed in with the one that I can't get into.

I'd really appreciate some advice...

Thanks much,


A:Can't log into Hotmail account, but others can from same PC


I've seen similar problems with Hotmail and Yahoo acounts. I think the volume on these "free" accounts is SO HIGH.......that it fills to capacity as far as availability. My advice would be to try again at different times. This problem makes these accounts very unpredictable and somewhat unreliable because of the availability issue.

My son has a hotmail account. My husband and I both email him from our respective mchsi accounts regularly. I found out the other day that my son receives my husband's emails, but not mine. I asked my son if he has me blocked...he checked and said I wasn't. What else could be causing this problem? He does receive my emails if I send them from my aol account.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

A:Hotmail Account

It will be case sensitive input for login and passward, and your Caps Lock key appears to be stuck on.

By the way, use of all capitals in a post is the equivalent of shouting at people, as well as being hard to read.

Hi all

Has anybody else been locked out of their Hotmail account lately?

I have been locked out since Friday May 17th.

At first I could not get Hotmail to recognise even my account name. When it finally did, it would not accept my secret answer and redirected me to msn support.

msn support now tll me there is no such account, even though there is still a secret question logged against it and email sent to it dos not return undelivered.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I foresee a huge security blunder on the horizon. Possible scenarios include a distributed denial of service or mass email virus dissemination through 'disappeared' Hotmail accounts.

I'd appreciate knowing if mine is trhe only one.

Hi !! Hermes ....I can only say that as happened to someone who's account had not been used within a mth....then again you are usually warned before hand. You haven't exceeded your email storage space??

Occasionally lately I have had a problem with my account accepting my password even though correct.

Have you done a virus scan lately ??

Sorry I can't be of much help !!

Good Luck

I had an @hotmail.co.uk email address.

I created a new @outlook.com as I had too much spam.

I can't log back into the @hotmail.co.uk email addresss as I wanted to close it and I've tried the forgot password method but still had no success.

My question is what happens if I leave the email address for example not attempt to login to the account for a long period of time, will it automatically be deleted?

A:Hotmail.co.uk account?

The account should get canceled after 270 days of inactivity.

The Microsoft branded services require that you sign into your Microsoft account periodically, at a minimum every 270 days, to keep the Microsoft branded services portion of the services active, unless provided otherwise in an offer for a paid portion of the services. If you fail to sign in during this period, we may cancel your access to the Microsoft branded services. If the Microsoft branded services are canceled due to your failure to sign in, your data may be permanently deleted from our servers.
