Hi Gillian,

Thank you for writing back. Since the problem email account is a Hotmail, the very first method to recover it is to RESET the password.

However, because you are not getting the reset code or link when doing password reset,you cannot recover your Hotmail in that way.

I believe you have already submitted the "Account Recovery Form" as you mentioned but it replied back stating that you have provided insufficient information. I feel your frustrations at this time but the form you submitted was checked against the data they have on record and this is done automated, that is, no human intervention. Thus, the claim was rejected easily.

Your last option to recover your Hotmail account is to contact a Hotmail moderator, who is an actual person from Hotmail. However, this needs that you are SIGNED IN to Hotmail so that you can contact a moderator. Therefore, you need to create a NEW Hotmail account (free), sign in to it, so that you can contact the Hotmail moderator.

Here are the steps:

Click on the link below to signup for a NEW Hotmail account:


Once you have created the email address with Hotmail, login to that Hotmail account and then click on the link below:


In the list of items in that page, click on 'Your account has been temporarily blocked'.


In the form that you get, provide them details regarding the fact that you have already completed the recovery form, but have been unsuccessful. Rest assured that the details you entere in this form will be read by a real person from Hotmail so provide more details.


Make sure under ‘Enter the email address (Microsoft Account) affected by this issue:‘ you give them the email address that is blocked.


Under ‘Enter your contact email address:' you give them an email address you have access to; like the Hotmail you just created.


They will respond in 24-72 hours, depending on how many requests they have waiting in queue before yours. Depending on the amount of information you tell the moderator, you must be able to recover the Hotmail account.
