Welcome, I am Cory.

I am sorry you have done this by mistake.

What happens when you try to sign in?

Expert:  Cory replied 1 year ago.

Because you have deleted the account, Hotmail deletes everything inside of the account. If you are not able to change the password ***** login, then you can try to sign up with the email again. However, if you are able to sign up, it will be empty for the security of your information. If you can not register it now, then you will have to wait 90 days for it to be purged from the system.

If you want to try to contact Hotmail by email, you can login to the account you can access, then click follow the prompts and contact Microsoft about the account.
