Hi there Madeleine and welcome

Outlook is the new Hotmail that microsoft have implemented. They switched over to this new system but your account and its information remains the same, and you should be able to sign in as normal.

Go to outlook.com and sign in with your standard hotmail account details.

What then happens?

I'm trying this now I'll let yo know in a minute.

Thank you

It hasn't worked I get cycled run to a new account which has none of my emails
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

ok, it looks like you created a new account by accident.

Click on your name in the top right and click sign out.

Now enter in your original hotmail account address please

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

I'll continue this way. I signed out and signed in again. I get to an MSN page (I now understand why Steve Jobs hated microsoft!) and when I click outlook.com (which I'm thinking is the email page) Safari won't open it because it tells me that there has been too many redirects
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

Close safari please, then reopen it and go to www.outlook.com

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It will take me to Facebook, it will take me to maps.... it will take me to my Twitter account but it blooming well will not let me into the only one I want which is my hotmail account
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
If I close safari I will lose you how do I get you back?
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

Note the web page at the top please then you can return here and post a message.

I can also connect to your computer and do this for you if you wish?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thank you for the offer but I cannot afford any more so I've taken the web address and will close safari and try again.
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.
