My hotmail account has been blocked and the email where Microsoft want to send a reset code no longer exists... HELP!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have now setup a new hotmail account so I can get on to forums to ask a question to be able to get my old email account working. As most of you probably know it is nearly impossible to phone microsoft!! I am an hour in and very frustrated (rant over) :) Please could someone tell me how I get back in control of my old email account. I have so far reset the password, however my account is still blocked. Microsoft want to send a reset code to an email account I no longer hold and they offer me no alternative options!! Any suggestions? Is there anyway I can get in contact with Microsoft to provide another alternative email to send the code to?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!!
