    I signed up for a Hotmail account on 9/29 in the middle of the night. I am older and I had trouble because they did not like any name I wanted to use.
    After a couple of hours (yes hours), they took a name and a password and I dozed off and I cannot remember anything. How do I recover a whole hot mail account when I don't remember my username or the password? I gave them my yahoo account as my secondary address but have not received any email from them on yahoo. :confused:Thank you in advance for your help. God Bless

    Unfortunately if you can't remember your user name, you're probably out of luck. Your best bet would be to open a new account and as soon as you open it, send an email to your yahoo address. That way you will have your username saved. Good luck!

    If the web browser is open or has history saved you can try the back button.

    Did you check the Yahoo spam folder for an account notification?
