    How can I close a Hotmail account? I go to help while logged in and it says to go to the account closing page. When I click on that link it just takes me to the main login page (my inbox). Is the only way to close the account to wait the 30 days without sighning in?

    I got the "account closing page" to come up with Netscape 7.

    [email protected] Close Account

    By closing this account, you are marking your account inactive. Stored e-mail and addresses will be permanently deleted and inbound mail will be refused. Your .NET Passport will still function, and your e-mail name will be reserved.

    To re-activate your account, simply go to http://www.hotmail.com and enter your Sign-In name and password. You will then be able to send and receive e-mail using MSN Hotmail once again.

    If your account stays 'inactive' for over a period of 90 days, it will be permanently deleted. This delay is necessary to discourage users from engaging in fraudulent activity. Additionally, due to the limited number of names available, we may allow other users to sign up for and use your current e-mail name after your account has been permanently deleted.

    So it really takes 90 day for the account to be gone for good.
