EMAIL SERVERS

I have been using a hotmail account for my emails for YEARS.

Every month for the past 6 months or so I've been having massive problems accessing my account.
On the last day of every month when I go to log into my email account a page comes up saying "Call us Overprotective, but... bla bla bla"  and I have to try and get a security code emailed to me... so I can get into my hotmail account.

Trouble is ... I CAN'T GET INTO MY HOTMAIL ACCOUNT TO GET THE BLOODY CODE!
I put in Bex's email account so she could get the code for me... but now she can't get it either.

I go mental every month... well more mental than usual Stew says!  Arsehole.

So... anyone else have this problem?

And ... who can recommend a different email server that I can switch to... cos I'm about ready to kill someone!

You can't even email the Hotmail server to find out how to stop this nasty little merry-go-round!
Trust me, I've TRIED.

So, I have now managed to gain access again... until the end of this month!

HELP!

Today I'm going to be a good girl and read some blogs, give some nice comments and after lunch I will continue knitting.

Here's a couple of photos from yesterday that I didn't post yet:


 ABOVE: 'Sniff it Dante.... NO!  Don't lick it!"


ABOVE:  A really lovely piece of driftwood in the Botanic Gardens.

ABOVE:  My front door area, which I love.

Right, off to get the day started, then read some blogs.

ONWARD...

OK. Thanks everyone for the email advice.  I will try to change all my email accounts to a new gmail one over the weekend.  Something tells me it will take that long!

What else?

Ummm ... have not read a single blog yet.  Got an upset tummy ... lots of running off to the loo (sorry, too much info?), so nothing has been read or done.  Can't think why me tum is so irritable, but just have to go with the 'FLOW' so to speak...  ha ha ha!  At least I'm still smiling.

Weight loss... however it happens is fine and dandy with me!

MAGGIE:  sorry, as I said, I've been having massive email issues, so I expect half me emails have not been cleared yet.

I am going mental.  I have spent the last hour or so trying to set up a new email address with 'gmail' and import all my contacts, addresses etc to if from my hotmail account.
ONLY  ... I can't do it cos according to the internet demons, MY password is wrong!
So I went through all the hoops necessary to change my password, which I did... but it's still saying my password is wrong.

There's lots of VERY BAD WORDS running around in my head right now.  I'm going to leave it for now, as I CAN now get into my hotmail account!  Go figure.


End of Day:  usual sort of Friday night... dinner, chocolate, TV, bed.
nite nite

  1. Sounds like a virus to me or spam. My sister had the same thing and had to get a Gmail account. I have both bit Gmail is absolute shit. We're using it at work now and it's soooo backwards. I would try perhaps the same email address but with "Live.com" or something. ..via Hotmail. There are probably more modern ones but this is my fave.

  2. I love gmail - have used it for years now. It's all linked up to my iTunes, blogger etc. I went to my old hotmail account and redirected all mail from there so I didn't miss emails from those who didn't know I'd changed address. I've never, ever had a problem with gmail.

    The best part? If you are using chrome for your browser you can put a little icon up on the top which tells you if you have new mail so I don't even have to log in and check.

  4. Lost my message gggrr but main brunt of ot was yahoo. Bits it's a real pain changing email address. I'm sure you have tried but is there anything in hotmail settings you can unset this security option. XxxFelicity

  7. Hated hotmail and stopped using it years ago. I've been with gmail for ever and haven't had any problems with it.

  9. I use yahoo and have never had an issue. Bit of a pain when you have to try and transfer over all your contacts. Think I would just start again and get everyone to send email address that you need?
