Locked Out of My Email Account RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    At the log in screen, I started receiving a message that my password was incorrect, when it wasn't.  I would enter the 6 letter/number combination that appeared on the login screen.  After doing this once or twice I could gain access to my account.  But, without a warning the system locked  me out and would not work, no matter how many times I tried.  I don't understand how this problem started, but I just what to select another password, and get into my account.  I've sent numerous tech support emails but I'm getting no where.  Can someone PLEASE help me?

  • Hi,

     

    Could you please clarify the problem you encounter with detailed information? Which email account is locked out? If the system account is locked, you can refer to following:

  • Hi, I am currently travelling around Europe and as such have been locked out of my account 10 times now in 2 weeks. As my security number is my Australian number this is highly inconvient and from all of my research there is no solve for this even though I continue to login from the same device hotmail still can't figure out its me. As such I will be using my gmail account from now on. Cheers
