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: http://support.msn.c...ductkey=hotmail
On a French forum i have read that MSN France some infos are required :
This is a translation (sorry if it does not always sound english ):"Please you will need to provide:
Your Hotmail or MSN Email address
Another email address where you can be joined.
The name, birthdate and place of birth below should be the same as hose you hav ementionned for your Hotmail or MSN account
Date of birth
Date of your last passport connexion (last time you were able to access your hotmail account)
Approximative date of your account creation
Optional data to provide
If some of the data mentionned above are not correct, any other information about the account can be useful to determine if you truly are the account holder
