I don't know why or how windowsLive would stop you from accessing your hotmail account... but, if yoou cannot get to hotmail.com or msn.com, then try bing.com . On the top of the bing screen you'll find a 'sign in' link. This sign-in is for all of the MSN services including hotmail.

If for some reason, you are unable to get to hotmail from any of these methods, I would download another browser, like Opera, Firefox, or Chrome...

I would also9 consider removing WindowsLive!

How come i can access my gmail on my smart phone,but not on my laptop as google have locked me out?.


When connected to Gmail on your smart phone, set up a secondary email address. This is an email address that Gmail can use when you have a problem with your primary Gmail address.

After setting up the secondary email address, try to connect to your primary Gmail address using your laptop.

After you receive a message that you are locked out, there will be an option for Gmail to send you an "unlock" link in an email to the secondary email address.

Access this email using your laptop and click the link. You will then be able to access your primary Gmail account using the laptop.

Why do my emails to others show windows live mail not my personal email address?


Really need more info than what you gave.
Your emails are sending through the Live mail server. Your personal email? is that from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Check the setting or options on your email client (program) it should have a reply to field you could set that as your personal email address. It is also possibly where the setting is that is sending through the live mail server.
You might need to set your ISP as the default. For example I use Thunderbird. It checks my ISP email and 3 Gmail addresses but when I send by default I send through one of my Gmail addresses but I can use a drop down box to select a different send server if I want to appear as coming from a different address.

I want a new gmail account


Are you trying to create a second Gmail account to use with an existing Gmail Account?

Let's say you have two big uses for Gmail: one you use with friends and family/for fun and one that you use more professionally. It is definitely possible to read mail and send mail from both within one inbox. Here's how:

(Let's call that more personal account your primary account and that professional one your secondary account)

Create that second account
The first step should be to create the secondary account if you haven't already done so. To create a secondary account, go ahead and sign out of your primary account. Click the "create an account" link and get started.

To receive emails from the second account
Next, in order to see emails sent from your secondary to your primary account, you should set up forwarding. Keep in mind that you can also forward emails from your primary to your secondary account should you want all messages from both emails in both inboxes. To set up forwarding:

1. Click the gear in the top right.
2. Select Settings.
3. Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
4. Click Add a forwarding address in the "Forwarding" section.
5. Enter the primary email address
6. For your security, we'll send a verification to that email address.
7. Open your primary email account (signing out of the secondary account), and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team.
8. Click the verification link in that email.
9. Back in your secondary account, refresh the page.
10. Select the Forward a copy of incoming mail to option and make sure your new forwarding address is listed in the first drop-down menu.
11. In the second drop-down menu, choose what you want Gmail to do with your messages in that secondary account, such as keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox or archive Gmail's copy.
12. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Now, you should be able to see emails from both accounts in the same spot.

To send emails from the second account
Last, in order to send out emails from the primary and the secondary account in the same inbox, you should set up the "send mail as" feature. To set up the send mail as feature:
1. Click the gear icon in the top right
2. Select Settings
3. Select the Accounts tab (or Accounts tab, if you're using Google Apps).
4. Under Send mail as, click Add another email address.
5. In the 'Email address' field, enter your name and alternate email address.
6. Choose one of two options:
7. Use Gmail's servers to send your mail (this is easier to set up)
8. Use your other email provider's SMTP servers (we recommend this option for professional mail accounts or domains). Note for Google Apps users: Depending on your domain type, this feature may be disabled by default. Talk to your administrator if you have any questions.

Now, when you're sending an email in your inbox, simply click "from" and choose which email address you'd like to send from.

You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.

The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.

Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.

Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.

Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."

Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."

Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."

Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.

All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.
