Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You have taken all the good choices to recover access to your Hotmail account.

But, you may have a problem, in that the account may have been removed for being stale in a 3 year interval.

After 360 days of inactivity, a Hotmail account will be deleted permanently, according to what I can find out. This is unfortunate for you, but is the only news I can honestly present.

The rule may be different from the citation I found about the 360 day rule, however, so keep trying with the inquiry.
