I signed up a Hotmail a/c a few years ago. My host address had been changed
before I forgot my password. Is there anyway to revive the a/c?
Or just because of the long period I left it untouched so MS would have
destroyed all my info and stuff..
Thanks
Jack

You'll have to re-create the account. The account is closed after a while
and I think that eventually they return the account name to be used again so
you might even be able to get the same name back though all of your
information will have long since been moved to the bit bucket by now.
