I still use Hotmail
- I deleted my Hotmail account because I had a ridiculous amount of spam, advertisements, updates and other e-mails every day that were making me phone beep constantly. I already have two other accounts (one with Hotmail and one with iCloud) so this third (and oldest) account was no longer needed.

- My email has been hacked. As such I cannot open it. I also understand from my contacts that it has been used to advertise unsavory products.

Old Email Account
- 2007 I don't use. I have a Hotmail made last year which has been my main for about a year. I now use Outlook.com for email and to be honest I just know I'm not planning on using the Hotmail from 07.

Emails Wiped from Computer
- Live Mail has never performed how I wanted it to and all my emails over the past 3-4 years have been wiped from my computer for which I blame Live Mail and the damned insistence in trying to hook me up to other things I don't want or need and blocking access to my Hotmail accounts..

- I gave my email address to a person online and now they have been filling my email with junk and spam. The address of the person I don't remember. I will plan to close the account to try and stop them from harassing me from the anonymity of their computer.

- Had this account since 2000, spam got sent through it; someone hacked into my account and sent my friends and even to me junk emails.
- —Guest Not going to give my name
- Twice my account has been closed, or I have been refused access for some unknown reason. Twice is too many. Good-bye.

I Quit for Two Reasons
- I quit for two reasons: the first is because I am so tired of all the junk mail, but the more important reason is that Hotmail, while free, supports Planned Parenthood which is the leading abortion platform in America. I can't condone in company that subsidizes the killing of humans.

Spammed, Hacked and Hijacked
- Unwanted spam that will not go away, then I was HACKED with a $900 request (when I responded to a FROM looking like it was from Hotmail and a click here link on it to reopen my account through it) and return addy is my email account! On top of that - 2 days later the account was HIJACKED (account was stollen and my password will not open it anymore). I cannot even get my addresses out of it. By the time account managers get me a reset password, I may not even have any addresses in it.

Hotmail Lacking Security and Assistance
- Closing hacked Hotmail account immediately due to lack of security and tech assistance.

- Hotmail tried to charge me 70$ to fix my account after i had been hacked. Unbelievable!

Single Use Code Problem with Hotmail
- Why is Hotmail requiring me to use a single use code from my home computer. And, even when I try the code does not work. This is so frustrating. I actually got into my Inbox one time and I thought the problem was solved, but I signed out and tried signing back in and the troubles started all over again. There's no help for this anywhere. I've searched for hours. I'm sick of it.

Several Accounts, Duplicates Sometimes
- I closed my account because I have several different email accounts, and sometimes I keep getting duplicates.
- —Guest kasiola
- I closed my Hotmail account because no matter how many times I blocked a certain person they continued to get through, and I don't even know this person.

Blocked FAR too much
- My main Hotmail I use has been blocked so I go to the one where there is the code but that one has been blocked so I go to the next one which also too has been blocked. After that it tells me I need a phone number to fix up that one. I don't have a phone so I really am annoyed that 3 of the emails that I use for different reasons have all been blocked and it has gone to the point where I really do not bother to waste my time in trying to do things that would really get on my nerves.
