Hotmail Hacked

My hotmail account has been hacked and is now blocked by hotmail.
I am having great difficulty getting things sorted out with hotmail right now. To those of you who normally receive e mails from me I will be in touch min time providing i have not lost my contacts list.

Hotmail states it has sent a reactivation code to my Yahoo address but nothings come through on there yet and that was several hours ago. I give up.

Hotmail says its sent it but nothing on yahoo address. Tried to open a Gmail account but all i get is "Error 404. page not found"
Stuck with the old yahoo address now (hate yahoo) Very annoyed about the huge contact list i have lost on Hotmail.
Guess this is what happens with a wireless connection.

You don't have to have wireless to have your Hotmail account hacked, it is the least secure service out there. Persevere to obtain a Gmail account then once Hotmail gets you back up transfer your contatcs list and never go back to Hotmail.

Good luck.

Billyboy:

I haven't used Gmail for a while but I think there is a way to tell it to import your contacts from Hotmail. Try the drop down menus at "File".

Bill, I am glad to see that you have your contacts list back. It looks like you had the same problem that I had, I got my account back after about 12 hours.

Cheers Frank

Thanks Frank.
Icant send my address book from hotmail to gmail as there is no SEND button appearing on the appropriate page.
I cant import using g mail as it just sends me round in a circle....Strange things happening on the internet. Dont know whether to blame it on water tight doors or global warming...LOL

I got my 1st dodgy hotmail email from somebody on here. I'm sure they had no idea about it. It was disguised as a request to check some pictures they had posted to see if they worked.
Bang, my email addresses were stolen. When I realised this, I emailed all my contacts and warned them.
This happened over 6 months ago, but recently 3 or 4 contacts have had the same thing happening to them.

Bin Hotmail ASAP ! And ignore any unusual emails from it.

BTW the expected assault on Macs is happening. The advice is to have the latest Java updates.
