Email/So Confuzed and Worried


Hey! So I play minecraft and have forgotten my security questions. I clicked on the I forgot thing and it said send email to email account used to make the minecraft account. I forgot the password (typically) for that too so I clicked forgot password and sent and email the this email account and it then required me to send a filled out form email to them full of details and the problem was there was a minimum amount of questions to be answered and some I couldn't fill out due to not knowing. There was 1 option... Previous Passwords! Since I have forgotten the 1st password ever I can't do it. So I write as a password a fake one and one saying I can't remember my password and that's why I'm here. I get an email back saying (copy and pasted):

This sounds like you are being spammed and do NOT respond with any information.  This is how your identity gets stolen.

This sounds like you are responding to an unsolicited email, do not respond.

If you are trying to signin to an account like YouTube, then you will be prompted at that time to reset and they will send you a new one through the registered email and they will NOT ask you for any information.

I fail to believe that this is the case! Please Please Please help me I would truly appreciate it!

Hello Lara!

Thanks for your question!

So what you can do here to get your email account back, is trying out Microsoft's new Answer Desk chat support

go to "Accounts and billing" and see whether they can help you recover your Microsoft Hotmail account. (Which is now called "" and part of the Office brand).

There you can select to chat online for free with a Microsoft customer supporter, I did that twice already for Windows 10 issues!

Please let me know whether this helped!
All the best!

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using the Opera browser since year 2000 & the M2 email client since 2004. I will do my best to answer also other email related questions and email client settings related, etc. But please no Outlook or Outlook Express questions, since I do not use that. (But if you really want to ask in that field, I will sure do try my best to answer your question nicely and correctly anyway :) ). This includes but is not limited to web based email or whatever comes to your mind.


I am a Management Assistant in Informatics education which was done under the control of the CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry). And had to solve various PC, email and other related problems. Using computers since 1990.
