I have been a customer of your for many years, until February

This answer was rated:

I have been a customer of your for many years, until February this year when I was unable to log in and told my password XXXXX invalid. In trying to correct this, I mistakenly pressed "Two-step verification" on my mobile phone, and then I was told in March that I would have to wait a month before I could log on to my hotmail account. That month has now passed, and in the meantime i have had to open a new account.

PLEASE help me to regain my hotmail account: [email protected]

I have had a scam offer this morning from a firm called Techvedic, for which I very nearly fell.
Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No that was fine and I could sign in fine - well done! It's the hotmail that's the problem

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX hotmail, so it is the Mail program on the computer that is the problem Alison.

We will remove and add the account back to the computer.

Then click the + sign and add the account again.

Once added, tell me please if it now receives your emails please.

It failed because it would not accept my original password. I have tried all the others I tried but none work.

Is this the password XXXXX used Alison?

No I used that one, but I have now and it wouldn't work. Could you please re-send that link because when I try it again it comes straight up
