As you well know, hotmail is no longer. Microsoft has forced everyone over to Outlook.com. I'm not even sure what assistance you're looking for. How do you expect us to help you on something that is way beyond on our control? I don't control Hotmail servers. I'm pretty sure none of us here do. Just email their tech support & see what they say.

EDIT:

It's been pointed out by someone in this thread that people with hotmail email addresses are still valid. This is exactly correct and I never meant to infer otherwise. To explain my posting further and to correct any confusion as to what was said, I will clarify my statement.

REGARDLESS of whether you have "joeblow@msn.com" or "joeblow@hotmail.com" or even "joeblow@live.com" - your email address is still valid and will remain the same as long as you keep it active. What I meant here in my original post is that logging into the hotmail service has been discontinued. Everyone that used to log in via www.hotmail.com (or simply (hotmail.com) must now use www.outlook.com (or Live.com - same thing) for accessing their emails via the website. This change took place several months ago April 3, 2013 to be exact.

Irrespective or whether of this issue (loging into www.hotmail.com or www.outlook.com) the hotmail service is no longer and it has been the case for many years. Microsoft bought out Hotmail (approx. 1997) and the users have always seen it as "Hotmail" even after the acquisition took place. This switch to Outlook.com reinforces the idea it is now ALL microsoft 100% of the way - it's not only a rebranding process to reinforce the image it's all Microsoft, but also includes new technologies that never existed with hotmail.com originally.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. Should have made a backup of your emails. Now you know.

Switch to GMail and use Got-Your-Back.

You didn't somehow connect to hotmail with pop3 in outlook and downloaded all of the mails to .pst with an option to delete all mail on server?
