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.
