Blocked from email - Impossible code :S

by Haggerz / July 5, 2012 11:13 AM PDT


Yesterday I logged on to my email account to find a few post master delivery failure emails telling me emails that i had sent had failed to reach the recipient, but I did not send the emails and so reported them as a friend being hacked.

Unfortunately I did not think about the effect this would have on my account, being the 'friend', and so when I logged on later in the day I found that my account had been blocked, there was a few paragraphs explaining the problem and how my account could be reopened by the entering of a code which would be sent directly to me, idiotically though, I do not have a second email account linked to my blocked one and so the only email that the code could be sent to was the blocked, which makes it pretty impossible to get the code and regain the access to my account as this is obviously needed to get the code.I've tried linking the blocked email account to another of my accounts but this did not work because of the account being blocked and I tried to involve my mobile but nothing worked. I'm in a bit of an impossible situation now and would be really grateful for some help! Thank you whoever replies Happy

I'd post this in the Microsoft forums next.

I'm sorry, I don't understand your reply,

My post is concerning my windows live account which is why I posted it on the windows live forum, why do you think I should be posting this on a microsoft forum (which I can't even find :S)?
