• Hotmail has been one of the most used email services in the network. The Microsoft service is used for all kinds of activities such as social networks, forums, work and even to create a blog . 

    Using a Hotmail email account or another service such as Gmail or AOL does not interfere with the platform, basically it is something that each user decides what type of mail service to use, so when registering on platforms such as Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr or WordPress. com you can select to use a Hotmail email, Gmail or other service.

    Creating a Hotmail account

    Before starting your blog with Hotmail you must have your email ready, but you must take into account that you can also use the new Microsoft service that has replaced Hotmail and that is called " Outlook". However, the network to register an email in Hotmail still gives us the option of type Outlook.com or Hotmail.com

    Anyway I leave this manual on how to create an email account in Hotmail: http://www.microsoft.com/es-xl/outlook-com/

    Once you have your Hotmail or Outlook account - and I still do not understand why Microsoft started migrating Hotmail emails to Outlook and now let's use the old name of the service - you just have to register in Blogger or WordPress.com to use your new mail in these blogging platforms.

    Is there a difference in using Outlook or Hotmail?

    Previously Hotmail in the aesthetic part and user interface was very different from what is now the same service since it was renewed with the introduction of Outlook as a mail service . However, the registration of the service allows different domains to be used, but now under the same interface.

    Although the Hotmail that we once knew a few years ago does not exist, we can use it for different uses including creating a blog. Basically the process to create a blog with Hotmail.com , Outlook or another service is the same, there is no difference.

  • This is the second refresh of this article. Much the same as some other significant email supplier, the email interface continues evolving. Additionally, the secret key reset or recoup technique likewise changes. Indeed, if some way or another you lost access to your Hotmail email, you can endeavor to recoup your secret key. There are no ensures that you will have the capacity to get to your record and it may look somewhat changed, everything relies upon your security settings. Everything begins with this message: "secret key is wrong. Make sure you're utilizing the secret word for your Microsoft account".


    Incorrect Hotmail password
    If you're sure that you typed your password correctly and still, it doesn't work, look for a small, blue link named "Can't access your account?". It's just under the "Sign In" button.
    Can't access your account - Hotmail question

    You should be taken to "Reset your password" section. As you can see in the following image, you are required to type your email address and also the captcha code. If the captcha code doesn't work, you can try another one or you could listen the audio file - it's the same thing.
    Reset Hotmail password - enter captcha
    Important: As I said at the beginning of this article, it all depends on current security settings of each account. I've encountered three different scenarios. Two of them are almost the same while the third is a little different.
    First scenario
    1. When you attempt to reset your password, Hotmail will require a secret question that should be known by you when you created your email for the first time: see the following image.

    Second scenario
    2. My email account was created in 2011 so I added two different email addresses that I own - at different email providers. Therefore, in order to reset my password, Hotmail will send me an email with further instructions on my other emails that I specified when I created my account.
    Third scenario
    3. Take a look at the following image at "I can't use any of these options". If you click on that link, it will ask you for more details and you will have to specify an email address that you can access if you wish to receive an answer. I did not cover this part as most people won't need it but keep in mind that there are no guarantees that you will be able to recover your email. However, it worth to try, if you can offer enough details maybe the Hotmail (Microsoft) team will be able to help you.
    Reset Microsoft - Hotmail-Live password using an email reset link

    Back to the second scenario, here's how it worked for me. I used "Email me the reset link" and this is the same window - the confirmation message is a little different. They inform me that a link to reset my password was sent on my email address (I had two, you might have only one).

    Password reset email sent
    Please note that when I followed these instructions for the first time, nothing happened. I checked my Inbox and also Spam folder and the message that allowed me to reset my password didn't arrived. I  waited for a couple of minutes and I started over. The second attempt was a successful  one, I received two emails instead of one, both of them with the same content. Here is the content of this email received in my Yahoo email, both text and picture:
    Did you request a password reset for your Windows Live account (example @ hotmail.com)?
    If you requested this password reset, go here:
    https://account.live.com/password/resetconfirm?otc=*CiE2SYI ( This url has been shortened )

    If you didn't make this request, use this link to cancel it:
    https://account.live.com/password/resetcancel?otc=*CiE2SYIy*aKEQ ( I also shortened this URL too )
    The Microsoft account team
    Microsoft account password reset email message

    After I clicked on the link to reset my (Hotmail) Microsoft account password I was automatically redirected to this page which tells me to enter a new password twice. I entered my new password and clicked on the "Next" button.

    Microsoft account password reset
    After I did this, I was redirected to login page where I had to enter my email address again along with my new password.

    After this step, Microsoft wants to make sure that you won't forget your security info. It's just a reminder of your current security settings so make sure that you review this information again. It will be easier for you to reset your password in the future.
    Tip: You can also add other safety features such as a secret question (I don't have one).
    "If you ever forget your password, we need a way to help you get back into your account. We won't use this to spam you—just to keep your account more secure."
    Review all the information and when ready click on "OK" to continue.
    Microsoft account security info
    This is the final step, you will be taken to "Account Summary" section. From here you can edit your name, rename your account, edit personal info, change your password and security info and much more. You may close this window and login to your email.
    Microsoft account summary
    One last thing, just in case you wonder why I wrote a similar article with the one named How to change Hotmail password in Windows Live, I want you to know that this is a different story. You can change your password when you can access your account but this is not the case here. Here, we are talking about how to recover your Hotmail - Live password (Microsoft), although the technical term here is called "reset" this is a simple recovery process via another email that you own or using a different method such as the security question.
