Hi Ioana,

Your first port of call should be the Hotmail Online Solutions Centre.

Specifically, the "I forgot my password" solutions category.

Cheers

when it will say log out failed just click the x at the top left hand corner and then go back to your email and it might be signed out

I did the same thing with that problem issue about log out. I did tried to log out then click the x at the top left hand corner then go back to my email and it still not signed out so it does not work. I HATE THAT!!!! Why does that happen. You need to take care of this problem issue right away

Hi,

The logout problem is probably due to cookies for the website.
In Internet Explorer you can try the following:

On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
In the General tab, in the Temporary Internet Files section, click Settings.
Click View Files.
At the top of the window, click the second column heading, called Internet Address, to bring your cookie files to the top of the list.
Find the cookie file whose name ends with "hotmail.com." If more than one person uses the computer, choose the cookie file that begins with your logon, or sign-in, name.
Click the file to select it and then press Delete. Answer Yes to the question that appears.

Cheers

I am really frustrated not being able to sign out of my hotmail account(s) - I use firefox, and google chrome, even tried browser Opera - same thing - can't sign out of hotmail. And sending this message to you, it didn't recognize my hotmail email ... "the email address you entered wasn't found. please try again." Can you help?

you might be able to sign-out because on the bottom of the screen there is a scroll and all you have to do is drag it to the right

Anyone know how to force a sign out on your hotmail account? remotely? from another device?

My bf has signed in to my hotmail account from his iphone and hasn't signed out.
and Although I have tried changing my password, because he is still signed in, he still has access....
This is a great example of why you shouldn't ever give out your password for any reason.... to anyone... I shoulda set-up my own email in my new phone... this totally wasn't worth the help!
