Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
That's okay. Do you also have an email address starting with the two letters GA and ending with @GMX.com? If yes, what is that email address?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I put that in already several times and was told they would send a code but nothing arrived on that Email
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
Have you checked the Spam / Junk email folder on your gmx.com email?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
several times :).
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. Is it okay to reset the PC fresh, so you can re-set it up fresh, like brand-new, with a new password ***** want?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will that mean i lose my files on my pc?
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately, yes. I guess you do not have any backup?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I could have done that myself. All i want is a new microsoft password. I do have some back up but not up to date. I dont want to lose my recent files
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Why cant i just have my password *****? I am able to reset password ***** all my other things. Seems odd that microsoft cant do it by email and why cant you use the email associated with the account
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You are contacting me by email now
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. I'm not affiliated with Microsoft; I'm an independent computer tech. I will continue helping you. So you go to the website gmx.com and sign in your gmx email, but you do any Microsoft email message there. Maybe gmx blocks hotmail email server, or maybe you misspelled the gmx email address previously on your hotmail account page.You can refresh this web page. I'm checking.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I thought you were from microsoft. That is very misleading
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i just paid you £39 to be told you cant really help
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
To confirm, you do not remember your hotmail email account password.And when you go to the website gmx.com and sign in your gmx email, but you do not see any Microsoft email message there.Maybe gmx blocks hotmail email server, or maybe you misspelled the gmx email address on your hotmail account page previously.I'm checking for another solution.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have already checked on line if thats what you are doing
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
You did check your gmx email at the www.gmx.com website right?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but i will do so now. I checked the gmx email on my phone
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
OK. You can also go to the gmx.com website on the phone and sign in your gmx email address and check.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 1 year ago.
