Husband has a Droid phone. He also has a 10 or so year old Hotmail account that he’s forgotten the password for because he’s always accessing it from his Droid phone and he stored the password in there. :smack:
He uses this account as his “spambox” so he doesn’t have any folders or contacts or recent emails to use to get the account info verified - we’ve tried. He also never set up, or didn’t remember if he had any security questions, and none of his “usual passwords” (don’t get me started) are working. :smack:
There isn’t any unusual activity, and he can still check the account and send mail from it using his Droid, he just wants to remember the password so he can update it and all the other stuff and have access to the account.
So, intelligent and technological Dopers, is there a way to tell his phone to show us the password for his account, or is he just screwed?
Or, failing that, if someone’s google-fu is up to it, is there a phone service line for Hotmail/Live accounts? We can find phone tech support for Microsoft hardware and their resident in-box software, but no such luck for the Live accounts. If he can talk to a real person, he may be able to show off the email stuff and “prove” that he’s really the email account owner.
Thanks all - this is frustrating!
