I am unable to access my hotmail account. Forgotten password

This answer was rated:

I am unable to access my hotmail account. Forgotten password ***** since setting 2 step authentication I no longer use the email account set up for recovery. This means I am unable to authenticate. Without this I am unable to change those details to alternative email address or to reset my password.
JA: Are you logged into your Hotmail account on any other devices?
Customer: I also use it on my ipad.
JA: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?
Customer: mobile phone number but the problem is that email address for 2 step authentication is no longer in use.
JA: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don’t think so.
