Help! My Hotmail Account is Blocked!!!
Self | April 18, 2011 | PJ-Comix

Posted on 04/18/2011 4:56:30 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Help! I went to sign in to my Hotmail account and I got a message that it was blocked because it was sending out spam emails. Then it asked from my mobile phone number to send me a code. I did that but no code sent. I tried other methods to unblock my hotmail via web research but each method requires me to sign in to MSN which is blocked to me.

Phone support is not available to me since I don't have a paid account. Okay, so how do I regain access to my blocked hotmail account without having to sign in since it won't permit me to do so?

Can’t you email them for support from a different email addy? I wouldn’t panic. Could just be a glitch.

That doesn't sound good. I'm no techie, but I would be very suspicious about giving my cell number to a message that promised to unblock access to a free email account.

Hope it's just a system glitch, and that you haven't inadvertently compromised your phone security.

You need to donate to the DNC and then Howard Dean will unlock your account. Upon re-logging in, turn up your speakers to hear the “Yeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!.”

If you've got internet access through a different computer, you could just look it up. Actually, you can probably do that from the computer you're on now.

Well, I did type in “hotmail.com” in the URL so it must have been them. Also many others have the same problem.

This should be the address to log into hotmail:

https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=11&ct=1303170804&rver=6.1.6206.0&wp=MBI&wreply=http:%2F%2Fmail.live.com%2Fdefault.aspx&lc=1033&id=64855&mkt=en-us&cbcxt=mai&snsc=1

This happened to me recently and everyone in my address book got Viagra ads - from me . My old password was still good and all I had to do was change my password.

Avoid hotmail entirely.

Use fastmail.fm - They’re safe, secure, and do not disclose your IP address.

Some people just don’t think while using their computer.

It never occurs to them that their computer has been compromised into being directed to “real” looking fake websites.

...and of course they give away their info when prompted...

Users who don’t think, the bane of IT Support.

I still can’t do anything there because my entire MSN account is blocked. What I need is the Hotmail support email addy and contact them from another email account that is working.

You have a trojan virus on your computer, FRiend. Take the computer to a computer store and get the virus removed or Google hot mail account blocked virus.

Going to bed soon, though, so if you decide to take my advice in the FReepmail, please do in next 10 minutes or so. Get up for work at 3am et.

I’m no help on this issue. But I did want to say, if you click on certain ads or spam posts on facebook, hackers can now get into your facebook and/or email account and use it to generate more spam. Hackers are also able to harvest any personal information you may have stored and can use it for identity theft. So be careful. Don’t click on anything from anyone you don’t know.

You probably will not get the account reactivate. This happen to my old Aunt recently ... had to give up and get her a new on line account somewhere else. Also - the spam is generated by a web bot that invades your computer and steals your address lists. It then could be operating as a SMTP mail program on your computer or on another computer practically anywhere. I tried five malicious agent removers and could not find it on her computer. So it must have been operating somewhere else - using her email address. Thus the reason for the block. Not fair - but they don’t care...

LOL! FRiend, I think Walgreen’s sells something to help with that. Hee Hee.

Here in WI, we joke about having a “cheese block”.
Unfortunately, last month I found out I am dairy and egg intolerant (and libtard intolerant) so I must never touch cheese again.

I love how some folks are saying how simple it is to find out the support addy for hotmail. Guess what? I’ve been googling for about an hour and still haven’t found that addy. If I can find it I would email them from another email account but WHAT is their addy. If anybody thinks it is easy to find, then try and find it.

Ooops, going by your thank you to labette, you were not making a joke about being “blocked”. Leave it to me to go right to the bathroom humor....oh well.

I’ll do an “Emily Litella” from SNL when it was good, and say

“Oh, never mind.”

An oatmeal cookie to the first person who can actually find the REAL hotmail support addy. Odd as it sounds, it is near impossible to find. Does it even exist?

You’ve got more FReepmail. Could be that bad guy on your system was not related to the problem accessing hotmail, though.

This support email below used to work. Not sure if it still does. Worth a try:

A friend of ours recently had the same trouble as this thread is discussing. My husband got spam from him, and when he called him about it, the poor guy said he was getting lots of calls about it. Not sure if he was also “blocked” from his account though.
