    Hi,
    I am using IE7.0. I wish to create a hotmail account. I am not from uk. So I go to hotmail.com. In the sign up page, I wish to have my email as <something>@hotmail.com, but I do not have this option to choose. The option that I have is either live.co.uk or hotmail.com.uk.

    So what must I do so that I can select hotmail.com.
    Thanks

    Seems from reading this forum http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=195010 that you can only have a hotmail.com address if you are from the USA, as you need to have a zip code,it must have changed since I have a hotmail.com account for the last 8 years and Im in the UK , there used to be options at one time for hotmail.co.uk or hotmail.com,seems they are not there anymore ...In any case I think they are both the same in the way they work,I did switch once years ago and they were identical .....

    Hi Thanks Telecom69.
    I dont mind putting a fake usa address just to get a @hotmail.com but I am worried that hotmail may cancel my acct if they found out the truth about my location.
    Thanks

    Shouldnt think that will happen, I think most people dont give out true details when asked for them,not like they are going to be writing to your home address is it ? go ahead give it a try,I would like to know how you get on, so that we would know for anyone in the future asking the same question ......
