The email address they want to send my security code is not mine, and it looks like a typographical error - one of the letters in the email address is missing. I can't change it - for all I know they may have sent the security code there!
I emailed some Microsoft support team, with a description of the problem, and they sent me a list of phone numbers to ring ....
The person I rang said Hotmail doesn't have telephone support and sent me an email with a link which supposedly should be able to help - couldn't figure it out, so submitted feedback AGAIN outlining the problem.
I have had this email address for over 11 years and it is really annoying as I figure after today I will not have access to it any more.
I really haven't got a clue what I am supposed to do, and I have no idea how to contact someone who can address this issue.
