    Hey guys,

    So this morning, I don't seem to be able to open my email account.

    Even my iPhone is asking me to verify my password.

    I type in my password and it says it is incorrect?!

    I also noticed that there are some delivery failure notifications for emails that I didn't send?!

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    I have a feeling that my account may have been hacked last night :dk:
    This happened once before and it sent out a load of bogus emails.

    Anyone had this before?

    Am I going to need to open a new email account now? :wallbash:

    Do you have an alternative email address in your hotmail settings? If you do then go to msn through a browser and click forgot my password it will normally ask some questions or perhaps just send a link to the alternative email address for you to change your password. No need to open a new account there are always ways around this.

    Hey Paul,

    Thanks for your reply bud.

    I think I can have a security code text to me.

    At the moment, it looks like someone has been into my account?! :wallbash:

    Thanks for the mail last night. I never knew you felt so strongly about me. Strange because I haven't had the same feelings for you. I mean you are nice guy but come on really? Do that on our first date. I don't even like watersports that much.
