I am in this Hotmail account problem again. The last time I had encountered a problem with my hotmail was when my contacts list was deleted as well as some of my email for a certain duration. Good thing the hotmail customer care was prompt to reply to my concern. It was immediately remedied.
My problem is worse now. I can’t remember my password! Unbelievable! I set my hotmail log-in and my MSN log-in to automatic so I don’t type in my password whenever I get into my mails. I don’t log in on other computers, so there was no necessity to check on my password. The thing is, I set my password to expire every 72 days. Now, when I am asked to verify and answer a secret question, my answer is always rejected. To make matters worse, for some reason I typed in for my alternate email address (where hotmail could send instructions to reset my password) the same hotmail email address. I must have been really stupid when I set up my hotmail account years ago! That’s really stupidity in the works!
I was not given a reminder that my password was about to expire. The thing is, when I opened my internet explorer this afternoon, the MSN website is not available. In my mind, I wanted to wait until the website will come back to normal. But I kept on hoping that I would be able to access my MSN and hotmail. For some reason, I clicked an option where intructions on how to reset my password be sent to my (supposed to be alternative) email address. I’m not sure, but could it be the reason why I am prompted that my password has expired?
I thought that I always noted down my passwords. But I had been browsing over my notes for the past two hours and I can’t find any. Arrrgghhhh! My husband is out of the country and he might just assume that I can open my hotmail anytime. I just hope that he calls me first… or checks this site first, so he’ll know he should not email me in my hotmail until I get things settled down.
When I wake up tomorrow, I just hope that by some divine intervention:
- I would remember my password or
- I would remember the answer to my secret question or
- I would be automatically signed in again (I promise to do the necessary changes in my account! promise!) – this is hoping for the impossible – but I just have to hope
