Is there any way I can somehow reset the password and have the email sent to another address since I cannot access the email I'm resetting for? I already signed up again under a different screename for MSN but I switched it from hotmail.com to live.com

Whenever I attempt to type in the password and submit to see if I get lucky, it says this password has been entered too many times incorrectly and blah blah blah...it tells me to wait. Well, I waited a week and I went back to try it and it still said that. I don't even know how I forgot it. I was in the process of changing all my passwords to all the emails/sites I belong to so I could remember them easily since most of them were all different...but that didn't seem to work too well. I don't see how I keep doing the wrong password though, since I only have like 5 variants with different words and such and I tried all of them and it keeps saying wrong password or "you've entered this incorrect password too many times".

Maybe someone hacked into it? I doubt it though.

Thanks , if any of you can help. :thumbsup:

You haven't provided an alternative email to send your password reset?
Hmmm, in that case it might be difficult I'm afraid.
However, on Windows Live they say that if you have re-entered wrong passwords and your account gets blocked, you still should have a chance to try again by using a verification system. Aren't you shown characters to enter, so that you can try to log in again?
