Hotmail allows you to create emails to receive spam

Microsoft's Hotmail e-mail service has officially added to its users the ability to create additional e-mail addresses only to receive spam.

The purpose of this is to help users to avoid receiving spam constantly, or to disclose personal information on the forums.

According to CNet , Microsoft's idea is to just use a Hotmail e-mail service, users can manage all the messages to read and the "just for deleting" messages in a mailbox.

This means that, users can create more secondary Hotmail addresses, and these accounts will be in the management of a primary Hotmail account. These extra email addresses can still read, or reply to messages as normal.

To create this secondary email, users only need to access their Hotmail service, select the option "Create a Hotmail alias". The process of creating secondary emails is similar to creating a primary email account.

According to Microsoft, the company now allows only five master email accounts to manage up to five secondary email addresses, which can be removed or replaced by any new address.

Expected, if this idea succeeds in the coming time Hotmail will upgrade the management of secondary email address from 5 to 15 addresses.

With this new feature, Microsoft hopes that Hotmail will help users with new email addresses to provide to third parties, such as account registration at forums, game accounts, accounts. receive mail ...

How to reset your Hotmail Windows Live password

This is the second update of this article. Just like any other major email provider, the email interface keeps changing. Also, the password reset or recover procedure also changes. Well, if somehow you lost access to your Hotmail email, you can attempt to recover your password. There are no guarantees that you will be able to access your account and it might look a little different, it all depends on your security settings. It all starts with this message: "That password is incorrect. Be sure you're using the password for your Microsoft account".
 
Incorrect Hotmail password
 
If you're sure that you typed your password correctly and still, it doesn't work, look for a small, blue link named "Can't access your account?". It's just under the "Sign In" button.
 
Can't access your account - Hotmail question

You should be taken to "Reset your password" section. As you can see in the following image, you are required to type your email address and also the captcha code. If the captcha code doesn't work, you can try another one or you could listen the audio file - it's the same thing.
 
Reset Hotmail password - enter captcha
 
Important: As I said at the beginning of this article, it all depends on current security settings of each account. I've encountered three different scenarios. Two of them are almost the same while the third is a little different.
 
First scenario
 
1. When you attempt to reset your password, Hotmail will require a secret question that should be known by you when you created your email for the first time: see the following image.

Second scenario
 
2. My email account was created in 2011 so I added two different email addresses that I own - at different email providers. Therefore, in order to reset my password, Hotmail will send me an email with further instructions on my other emails that I specified when I created my account.
 
Third scenario
 
3. Take a look at the following image at "I can't use any of these options". If you click on that link, it will ask you for more details and you will have to specify an email address that you can access if you wish to receive an answer. I did not cover this part as most people won't need it but keep in mind that there are no guarantees that you will be able to recover your email. However, it worth to try, if you can offer enough details maybe the Hotmail (Microsoft) team will be able to help you.
 
Reset Microsoft - Hotmail-Live password using an email reset link

Back to the second scenario, here's how it worked for me. I used "Email me the reset link" and this is the same window - the confirmation message is a little different. They inform me that a link to reset my password was sent on my email address (I had two, you might have only one).

Password reset email sent
 
Please note that when I followed these instructions for the first time, nothing happened. I checked my Inbox and also Spam folder and the message that allowed me to reset my password didn't arrived. I  waited for a couple of minutes and I started over. The second attempt was a successful  one, I received two emails instead of one, both of them with the same content. Here is the content of this email received in my Yahoo email, both text and picture:
 
Did you request a password reset for your Windows Live account (example @ hotmail.com)?
If you requested this password reset, go here:
https://account.live.com/password/resetconfirm?otc=*CiE2SYI ( This url has been shortened )

If you didn't make this request, use this link to cancel it:
https://account.live.com/password/resetcancel?otc=*CiE2SYIy*aKEQ ( I also shortened this URL too )
 
Thanks,
The Microsoft account team
 
Microsoft account password reset email message

After I clicked on the link to reset my (Hotmail) Microsoft account password I was automatically redirected to this page which tells me to enter a new password twice. I entered my new password and clicked on the "Next" button.

After I did this, I was redirected to login page where I had to enter my email address again along with my new password.

After this step, Microsoft wants to make sure that you won't forget your security info. It's just a reminder of your current security settings so make sure that you review this information again. It will be easier for you to reset your password in the future.
 
Tip: You can also add other safety features such as a secret question (I don't have one).
 
"If you ever forget your password, we need a way to help you get back into your account. We won't use this to spam you—just to keep your account more secure."
 
Review all the information and when ready click on "OK" to continue.
 
Microsoft account security info
 
This is the final step, you will be taken to "Account Summary" section. From here you can edit your name, rename your account, edit personal info, change your password and security info and much more. You may close this window and login to your email.
 
Microsoft account summary
 
One last thing, just in case you wonder why I wrote a similar article with the one named How to change Hotmail password in Windows Live, I want you to know that this is a different story. You can change your password when you can access your account but this is not the case here. Here, we are talking about how to recover your Hotmail - Live password (Microsoft), although the technical term here is called "reset" this is a simple recovery process via another email that you own or using a different method such as the security question.

Hasanbegović about the Hotmail Hotline and the current situation in the Government and the HDZ

In the show and the N1 studio live, the current political situation was commented by the Parliamentary Representative of Independents for Croatia, Zlatko Hasanbegović.

How do you assess the current political situation of Andreja Plenković regarding the Hotmail affair?

Plenkovic will formally find himself in a position from today on the day he came to power. He is neither a politician nor a statesman than an administrator. This Government will formally have the status of a technical government from today and will serve as a maintenance quo. Plenkovic will exist until the different lobbying interests within the HDZ decide otherwise.

When you talk about those in whose name Plenkovic will be administered, can you tell who they are?

The whole story of the Agrokora sunshine, and after the publication of the original mails, has shown the fundamental fact that there is a strong "deep state" in Croatia and a weak official state that is the instrument of this deep state. Plenkovic gave a good coinage called the group of these financial subcontractors. They are not subcontractors but performers. The sub-contracting is a Croatian state. Let us remind the fact that the mentor of this cluster group is a former finance minister from the late 90s, and he is also a mentor of a former economy minister who, after the election, entered the government as an expression of the will of HDZ voters or the will of the party as a personal choice of Plenković. Mrs Dalić is Mr Plenković, and Mr Plenković is Mrs. Dalić.

What are the views of HDZ voters today?

Where HDZ voters are a question that has the characteristics of the circle quadrature. The answer we will get at the next election. We have a kind of political schizophrenia. Plenkovic came to power on the basis of voter support and then he defeated and formed a government that was by value incompatible with the values ​​of those voters. After the adoption of the Istanbul Convention, which will prove to be the starting point for the sunset of Plenković, we have a paradox that the political left now has a new leader called Andrej Plenković.

Is there a combination and possible reversal to support an HDZ government?

The relocation will not be because they are the key guarantors of the government against the relocation. Milorad Pupovac is against the relocation. This Government and Plenkovic will survive as long as the conglomerate of various interest groups in the HDZ considers this to be in his interest. Plenkovic's promotional strategy goes in the direction of not promoting the image of Plenkovic as a promoter of state goals, but emphasizing the fact that he has no alternative to him. Every such policy is condemned to the ruin. But that will not happen right away. We enter the period, in the political sense, which we can call the summer-winter dream, because by the beginning of September, citizens and political elites will be busy with other things.

But lex Agrokor is near ...

Lex Agrokor and its implementation can be extended again for another three months in order to get rid of it because the actors involved in the process have an interest in everything going in the right order and taking what they can take. These are just threats, firing from false gunshots to ultimately, and even the blackmail method, gained more than they are now getting.

On Saturday, the HDZ Parliamentary Report, do you expect someone to hold a speech like Plenkovic held in 2016 when he criticized the leadership of the party?

Probably one of the actors in the speech will try to point to some problems, but that will be the Latin words that will call for party unity. It will be a show with flags, leaders and extravagant stars. Everyone who expects something special on this Parliament will be disappointed.
