Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue - was the old address @live.com or @hotmail.com?
And did you access this via the website or via Outlook Express/Windows Live Mail for example?
Let me know and I'll be able to advise further
just used hotmail.com until this box came up and told me I HAD to sign into Windows Live - things went blooey after that.
I will be unavailable until this evening. Hope this isn't a problem for you.
Catch you later, then.
I never use Outlook because I could never get a NET password XXXXX I used msn.com, then switched to hotmail.com.
Eureka! Got outlook and it signed me rihht in with daisy2duker2, etc. Will check it further, but it looks like my contacts have reappeared, at least in part -anyhow, more than I was getting.. .
Got outlookand some of my cotacts. Have to leave again - have compahy. I will see if thy know anythingaout Outlook. I did't put in mh old info where all mhycontacts were that MSN cannot find.
Thanks for your help.
I am in better shape than when we started; however, I still cannot get the match for my addy that i used for a long time and the password that i had when i got mixed up with the windows live signin box. They got me so confused it may all be flying around in cyberspace. They must have had my info, though, because some of my contacts came back when i got to Outlook. Maybe i will have to go and see if my ISP can follow me from initial signin for DSL up until now??? I have to call them tomorrow anyhow to get a modem using ethernet.
I must have scads of email under my addy of XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX. That's what I had when WL got me all befuddled.
Just a little note - I have had email come up on FB with yet a different signin than the original problem one, and one with yet another, both besides the one that i am corresponding with you, so that makes 3 addys. The answer lies somewhere in the passwords that are all muddled up, even though i wrote them down as i changed them. Thanks for all your help. I will leave you in peace until I get the modem and get it up and running.
OK Thanks. Will be gone all this morning.
Sorry to have been off contact for so long. have had other important problems here that had to be dealt with. I called the company whose modem I have (my IP provided the one i have), and the guy told me i don't need a new modem - all I have to do is hook up an ethernet connection from the modem i have to the phone jack. However, the local computer guy (who built my computer) says i need an ethernet modem cuz usb cannot be converted. I don't understand enough of this stuff to know what they mean, but my son now tells me i need an ethernet modem. Just letting you know where my situation is at this point. Then we are off to medical appts for most of the rest of the day 9:31 our time now. Audrey
Thanks for all your help
. My son got the thing figured out, so I guess all is okay. Still cannot find my old contact list, but am getting a new one worked up, so I am just going to forget about trying to find any old stuff and go from here.
