Hey Rex, I', Tim.....So if am account is locked out (three bad password *****) or not used for 6 months, it will lock out. If there is not additional contact info inside the account such as another email account or a cell # that they can send a verification code to, and you do not know the challenge questions (which many people just skim through when making) there is no good news, and i hate delivering bad news, but unless you have any of the above the account can not be gained back with out a subpoena to Microsoft. And that's a no BS answer.
