Category: New Hotmail Account

Having a Hotmail account is a great decision as it helps you to have an email account with one of the first, top and best webmail services in the world. You will also have Microsoft as your webmail service provider and therefore be sure that some of the best programmers in the world are responsible for your webmail protection. You can therefore be assured that your webmail service provider will offer you very secured environment to send and receive mail as well as an extremely low probability that they will suddenly shut down their operations.

When you have a Microsoft account, you can also use the account to send and receive mail, through the Microsoft outlook programme, which comes with your Windows operating system. The program also has a lot of other feature you will be able to benefit from including calendars, tasks and contacts amongst others

If you have decided to open a Hotmail account, then the first thing you will have to do is to visit the Hotmail website by typing www.hotmail.com on your address bar. Once the page opens, you will have to look out for the ‘create one’ link, which is on the same line with the ‘No account? Create one!’ text. Once you click on the link, you will be directed to a form page where you will be expected to enter your personal details, so that your account can be created.

The personal details that you will be expected to enter includes your name (both the first and the last), you user name (which should be unique to you, implying that no one else should have the same user name) and then choose if you want ‘@hotmail.com’ account or ‘@outlook.com’ account. After that, you will have to enter your password twice, with the second time being to confirm that you entered it correctly the first time. This is due to the fact that the password box does not show the text that you type, to make sure someone else does not get your password by looking over your shoulder when you are filling the form. It is very vital that you use a password you can always remember easily, as you will not be able to assess your account without your password. Luckily, Hotmail has a password recovery option, if you should forget your password.

The next form item will be to select your country/region, which you will have to select from the box. You will also have to choose your date of birth (month day and year) and then your gender (if you are a male or a female). You will then be expected to enter your country code, phone number and alternate email address. These details will come in handy in the case that you forget your password. A password reset code or password reset link could be sent to your phone number or alternate email. You can then use it to reset your account.

Lastly, you will have to fill in a captcha to show you are human, select if you want Microsoft promotional offers or not, and read through the Microsoft services agreement and privacy and cookies statement. Once you agree with these agreement and statement, you can proceed to click the ‘Create account’ button.
