    On the Hotmail Overview Page under "Passsword Reset Information" there is an unknown email address; don't know where it came from! Next to it I can click "Confirmed" or "Remove". When I click "Remove" it says it will send a confirmation email to that unknown address. I'm guessing someone is trying to hack into my account so they will have my new password when I reset it. I reset every 72 days and will be resetting soon.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Rosie,

    Instead of sending an email to the spammers email address click the link I circled on the confirmation page :

    Hotmail remove secondary email address.JPG

    Also, don't forget to change your password after removing the alternate email address!
