- Used other email program for five weeks and on some days got no mail at all. When I did log into Windows Live Hotmail I discovered 1370 emails it had downloaded on its own and stored. Using "Select All" when deleting, I could only select 36 at a time. What a sorry mess!

I Quite Because Hotmail Blows...
- I got Hotmail because a friend asked me to… it is horrible! Account limits? It only allows me to send so many emails then locks my account up. It tells me to verify my account with a text message to my phone, but my carrier is not listed. Woke up this morning & tried to send an email, but it says my daily limit has been met… It’s the first email of the day. Hot mail blows… I don’t know why anyone would want this garbage… Gmail’s better.

- When my email account with Hotmail was hacked, I tried twice to have it reinstated — I provided the information needed but was refused because "we take our security seriously and cannot take any chances". Total nonsense!
Hacked & Hijacked!
- Always careful to avoid exposure by not opening attachments, regular virus scans, etc. yet still got hijacked - no security here!

Windows Live Hotmail a Waste of Time
- Spent to much time trying to figure out why I couldn't send outgoing emails. I also had password issues. Called Microsoft and didn't do much good. Big dissapointment. A waste of time if you ask me. Moving on with other email providers.

Windows Live Hotmail Is Not for Me!
- Too many ads, keeps asking me to log in, won't send email most of the time and I don't need MSN Messenger or Bing – don't know what that is and really don't want/need to for my purposes.

Spams and Crap!
- I had this weird pen-pal, and he wrote me creepy messages.. plus a lot of junk mail! And I wasted a heck load of time on my Hotmail account! It was very distracting!

Hotmail Does Not Recognize my Passwords
- [Windows Live Hotmail] does not recognize my passwords. [I'm] fed up with trying to log in and am going elsewhere.

- Google, Facebook, Hotmail, they all scan and read your emails and the NSA and all those enter your emails to learn who you are, with whom you correspond, what you are up to, if you are a communist, etc then they will pass that information to banks and companies so that you don't get a loan or are hired. That is, you don't need to commit a crime, they will profile you so that they know that you are in favor of Occupy Wall Street for example, that is enough to include you in the databases that all companies check before hiring you etc.

Locked Windows Live Hotmail Account
- [I quit my Windows Live Hotmail account] because Microsoft & VeriSign have locked the reading of my emails, so I can't enter and read them.

- I got hacked before I got this iPad. Now hotmail will NOT let me stay signed in to my account. TMS ( too much sh!?)

Allows email to change
- I quit because Hotmail allows shipping notices to be updated automatically and I can't find out where to stop this! I want the ability to track my packages from shipping to delivery myself. With the automatic changes all previous information is deleted and new information is put in its place! If I receive separate emails on separate days I want to see them all!!!
