    Close a Windows Live Hotmail account permanently

    I had an account in Windows hotmail. When I tried to close this account I received a message “Cannot close. Email address is removed for privacy”. What should I do to close this account permanently?

    Check if you have paid for your windows live hotmail account like to account in out look etc., make sure you end all your subscription services and close your account by going to the account page and clicking close account. moreover, a windows live hotmail account will also be closed automatically if you keep idle (inactive) for 120 days

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Log into your Hotmail account.
    >>Click the down-arrow to the right of your name at the upper right of the Hotmail window.
    >>Choose Account.
    >>Now click that down arrow again and choose Account again. You should be on an "Account overview" page. There will be a "Close account" link toward the bottom.

    >>You can also log into the MSN account and disassociate the Hotmail account from the MSN profile.

    Thank you.

    Step 1 Go to following link to close your account
    https://account.live.com/CloseAccount.aspx

    Step 2. Enter your mail ID and password.
    Step 3. Click on "Close account" button.

    Step 4 Your account will be reserved for 270 days so that if you want to re-activate it, you can do within 270 days. After 270 days it'll be deleted permanently and you'll not be able to re-activate it.

    I know this problem actually the logic is that if you have close your account then it will be completely closed after 270 days Hotmail gives you 270 days if you want your account back after 270 days your account will be completely closed

    How To:
    1. To Close a Hotmail type account access the ‘Close Your Account’ tool by first signing-in using the account’s Windows Live ID username and password (see below picture).
    The url address for the ‘Close Your Account’ tool is:
    http://mail.live.com/mail/CloseAccou...irmation.aspx?

    2. After ‘Sign in’ click the ‘Close your Account’ option

    2. After ‘Sign in’ click the ‘Close your Account’ option

    • Note the 270 day required inactivity (subsequent use of the Hotmail account will cancel the closure request and reactivate the account)
    • 3. Once the account closure request is processed, the user will receive the following prompt

    4. Thereafter Do Not Use the Account for 270 days since use of the account will reactivate the Hotmail type account, nullify the original closure request and require the valid account holder to repeat the entire account closure process
