Hotmail Email has been merged into Microsoft’s Outlook.com Microsoft Account services. If you have been locked out of your account or have observed suspicious behavior (for example, unfamiliar emails sent from your address or unauthorized purchases associated with your account) then it’s likely your account has been hacked. Go to the Microsoft account recovery page and select the “I think someone else is using my Microsoft account” option to begin the recovery process. Don’t forget to use a strong password when you reset!
I: Resetting Your Account’s Language:
1: Login to Hotmail recovered account and press the gear icon to access settings. If you recover your account and find it changed to a foreign language you can reset it from the settings menu. The gear icon appears in the upper right corner next to your account name.
2: Select “More Mail Settings” from the menu. This is the fourth option below the color swatches and will take you to an options page.
3: Click “Language” to access the language menu. This button is the second option under the “Customizing Outlook” header on the right.
4: Select your desired language from the list and click “Save”. All language listings will display in their native alphabets.
II: Recovering Deleted Messages:
1: Login to your recovered account and click “Deleted”. If you think some of your mail has been deleted when your account was compromised, it may be recoverable. The “Deleted” button is one of your mail folders that appears in the sidebar on the left.
2: Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “Recover Deleted Messages.” Successfully recovered will be placed into the “Deleted” folder.
- There is not a specified time range in which deleted emails can be recovered. Any emails that could not be recovered are lost forever.
