Free Windows Live Hotmail accounts become inactive if you don't sign in for more than 270 days or within the first 10 days after signing up for an account. After an account becomes inactive, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted. Incoming messages will be sent back to the sender as undeliverable. Your account name is still reserved. However, if ...

Use a desktop email client such as Thunderbird/Outlook. The client will fetch your emails for offline use and then you will be able to save your data from the program. An alternative for this is to have a Google mail account which will allow you to import your old emails directly into your new Gmail account's inbox. Source.

The connection has been made inside your friend's Contacts list. Because your friend has somehow got your gmail address as well as your hotmail address, and s/he had said that they belong to the same person, the connection is made - but ONLY inside his/her contacts. The only way to break it is to ask your friend to delete the gmail address and profile ...

I don't really know what the answer to the question is, but I do know a way to find out for yourself. This probably depends on the different providers, and the type of mails you send anyway. You can test this very easily. Create a document on Dropbox (something random), and create a link to the document like you normally do. Then instead of just using that ...

From what I've read here, and here, everything indicates that you can't add back your original myname@hotmail.com, or at least not right now, but you might have some options: Wait for a rather longer amount of time, until the address is free and create a new account with it. (Not a new alias because it won't let you.) This period can vary from 30 days to ...

If I understand you correctly, you are using a FROM address in the form "mrblack"? I believe that breaks RFC 2822 and so there is no guarantee that ANY client will accept it. You need to put your FROM address text into the correct RFC format.

You would need to create a contact group: Go to People, under My Contacts, pick where you want to add the contact group, say Contacts. Click Home > New Contact Group and in the Contact Group tab, in the Name box, type a name for the group. Click Add Members, and then add people from your address book or contacts list.

You can change your password, this should make other sessions not valid. I do not think there was any other way besides using Windows Live Messenger. To use Windows Live Messenger was suggested by Microsoft as a workaround in ...

The first step is to go to Account Settings you will see the following information. I have removed my aliases for obvious reasons. So click "Add or Change Aliases" and you will get the following screen. At this point you add/remove your aliases.

Seems like the Mail Migration add-on will do the trick (requires IE). Setup your existing email account with Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail. Send/Receive to download your messages Sign-in to your Outlook.com in IE & run the tool. Just tested with a ~20MB attachment and all was good.

Hotmail as a service was discontinued some time ago. If you had an active Hotmail account, you should now be able to use Outlook.com to access your email. If the account was not used for some time, it's possible that Microsoft has shut it down. See also: How can I switch back to Hotmail from Outlook.com

From a Microsoft representative: "With the current design of Hotmail, the option you're referring to is not yet available. I will forward the suggestion over to our product team as consideration for a future release." Unfortunately, that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like the feature is coming anytime soon.

While the new look of Outlook.com is awesome, some of these types of advanced features are simply not yet available. Currently Outlook.com only supports "basic" Exchange rules and therefore only support one action. Once a rule matches and executes, the remaining rules are ignored as well, so there is no way to bypass this limitation. Obviously you can ...

You can also use the Outlook.com website to add contacts from a .csv file. ...

Your best solution is to use the Google Apps Migration Tool for Microsoft Exchange.

It can also do multiple accounts at one time. If you use Mail Fetcher, you will not get the sent ...

What you probably want to do is follow the same process as you would to Centralize mail from different accounts with Mail Fetcher. This will allow you to connect to your old Outlook.com account and download the emails you have there into your new Gmail account. You'll need to use the following: Incoming mail server: pop3.live.com User Name: your ...

I am currently having the same issue. Apparently, you have to contact Microsoft (for instance through their forums) and ask them to enable this functionality for you. I haven't figured out yet how to post there, but looking at other posts, that should do it.

Maybe it's a little late, but yes, you can do that if you are able to modify the SPF record of your domain. Google soft-fail your email because your domain designated the host that is sending this email as NOT being allowed to send emails. Normally it is due to a wrong SPF record in your DNS settings. SPF is a kind of DNS record that allows the owner of a ...
