today's morning i tried to sign in to my msn account on MSN msgr.....it seems someone tried to guess my password and hotmail blocked ANY login (even if its with the right password) so if i want to **** of someone, i just try to login with a wrong password and he cant get to his hotmail inbox or cant login to msn??

what the hell is that, microsoft looks stupid with these tactics

does anyone know how i can fix that, or where can i report something like this?

it sucks cause someone got a hold of my account and will keep trying to login just so i can not.

man am i ****ed.....ill kill the person who did it.

Well, change the password and you should be fine?

EDIT: Wait, I read this wrong, but I don't understand it...

it was noone in my computer. the thing is, if i want to bother Blaise, for exmaple, i just make a lot of attempts to login to his account on MSN and not even he could log in, even if he was entering the right password.

im sick of this stupid security ideas.

and this is hotmail's fault somehow? :huh: you chose a bad password, it's your fault your account was stolen.

unless that's not what happened :unsure:

i think he said that somebody just tried to login w/ a wrong password with numerous attempts, then hotmail blocked that account.

well..u can try e-mailing them about this. Again, I would never suggest anybody using a web-based e-mail as their primary e-mails....oh well..

Should it be web based or should you forward Hotmail thru Outlook Express i would think that without password you wont get in your Hotmail + the hotmail forwards to a client will become a paid option pretty soon with the new extra storag subscriptions.
I did not seem to find anything about Hotmail blocked accounts though I did hear that you account is blocked for a while when someone else tries to hack it. yet I know someone who was able to recover it by phone so ..

You may want to join Hotmail support here:
