There is no real way of telling , if you logged in and new emails were not in showing in bold as new , that is usually a give away , however they could of always been read and then use the option to mark as unread, check your sent items for any emails you haven't sent -- If you have changed your password XXXXX you mitigated the risk.

Hello, I can see that you have been working with another expert. (Edited by Moderator) the information he is giving you is solid, I will try to help you by answering your question. You seem to consider the status of the answer to your question to be black and white. So that's what I will try to provide.
So, to directly answer your question - no, there is no way for you to tell if someone else has accessed your hotmail account. There is nothing that you can look at that can tell you, and there is nothing Hotmail/Microsoft can tell you. If someone used your credentials, only someone physically looking at the person would have the possibility of knowing that it isn't you. In this type of authentication (two factor) there are two things that identify you and, as far as the computers are concerned, anything other than those two things are not even acknowledged. The two factors are your use rid and your password. Anyone with your use rid and password XXXXX XXXXX
I hope you find that this answers your question as you asked it, and that you will click accept. As you know, I do not have control over what the correct answer is, and the correct answer is what you came here and agreed to pay for. I know it isn't the answer you (or I wanted), but it still requires the same level of research to provide. If I am missing any information that you require to accept, please let me know and I will provide it. For your reference, there is an interesting article on this exact subject at the following page.
As you will see, in my first reply to you, I did state that there was no way to tell because I knew you wanted an accurate answer. Even when the answer isn't one I would want to hear myself, I find it best to put it on the table for discussion. So I thiink we're actually on the same page. The situatuon is really one of circumstance - while there is a list of IP's that have logged in, they might be useful in a crime investigation where you knew something specific on your account was compromised, the information isn't useful for determining if it's been compromised.
Something that may make you feel a little more comfortable however, is that hotmail/live/msn employs some pretty sophisticated technology to trigger an automatic lock of your account if their alogrithms determin that there has been unauthorized access - even if the person knows the username and password. It includes things that we wouldn't normally think of like unusual activity once logged in, or even a different pattern of entering the password - like if someone left more time between some keystrokes than you normally do. If that ever happens, you will be alerted to that when you try to log in and you will have to answer some questions to prove your identity. So make sure all your information is up to date in your profile, especially your alternate email address and security questions.
The only way to convert the deposit into payment so that I can be compensated is by clicking the accept button. So if you could please do that, I would appreciate it. And it only applies to the one answer and doesn't necessarily mean that you consider all the answer to be helpful.
