    Hotmail.co.uk email account - help please! 28th Jun 17 at 7:26 AM
    I tried to log in to my hotmail.co.uk account this morning but every time it fails with a message saying "something went wrong" error message MSSPError=-2146232060" there were a string of other numbers and letters when I clicked on more details. I access my log in page by just going to hotmail.com (which takes me to login.live.com). My OH has successfully logged into their hotmail account, so it's obviously a problem with my email account.

    Does anyone know how I can contact, please? I've tried to find how to contact them but so far have only come up with an Outlook support page, that specifically says for help only for Hotmail.com and Outlook.com. Heaven knows what I'll do if I can't access my account, I need urgent access to it

    Edit: I've now managed to log on, but I'd still like to know how you get in touch with Hotmail just in case I need it again. How do I back up my contacts and emails from Hotmail? I do a computer back up every so often, but I'm not sure that this would back up my Hotmail contacts etc?

    Help here. https://help.mailstore.com/en/home/MailStore_Home_Help

    It makes a copy of all your Hotmail on local PC, irrespective of how your Hotmail is setup.

    Contacts. Logon to Hotmail. Look for People -> Manage -> Export contacts

    Hi, we’ve had to remove your signature because somebody complained that the information contained within it was too helpful.
