    Recently one of my Hotmail accounts must have been hacked, because when I try to enter it, I get a message "It appears somebody else is already logged on". Have two other accounts and they work fine.

    Question is, what can I do to enter this unusable account again. Microsoft detected my attempts to get in and sent me a message that they had locked the account and I need to fill out a form to regain entry. Unfortunately, the type of information they want has not been enough, because I do not remember the e-mail addresses of the last 3 or 4 messages I sent out.
    I also do not know the titles of those messages which is what MS wants to verify I am the owner of the account.

    Any ideas?
    I have tried Googling the name of one of the people I sent an e-mail to, but every one of those services I encountered sooner or later wanted money for his e-mail address. Since I do not know the person's home address or phone number, have no way of contacting them to send me an e-mail to an alternate Hotmail account. Same thing with the other dozen or so contacts in that account.

    Since this has happened, I wonder how safe the other Hotmail accounts are and how I can make a backup of the e-mail
    addresses of all my contacts on them, so that if something like that happens, I am not "Lost in Space".
