In case you are using the wrong extension

Hotmail is the email account of Microsoft, and it is the popular Email application. However, Microsoft has now merged the Hotmail with Outlook and now only one email account exists for Microsoft and that is Outlook. The users who have accounts on Hotmail can still use the Hotmail extension to login; however, the platform for login would be of Outlook only.

In case you are entering the email ID with the extension, Outlook and you have email with extension Hotmail, and then also you won’t be able to login to your account. Therefore, make sure that you have entered the complete email ID with the correct extension.

Wrong characters in password

Hotmail password should be of eight characters with some characters. Sometimes, users create the password using different characters and forget the pattern of the same. In such situation as well users think that they are entering the correct login credential and are unable to login to the account. If this is the case with you, then also you can follow the above mentioned steps to change the password of your account and get access to your inbox.

Some other reasons that would cause fail login attempt are

  • The user is trying to open the account when there is no internet connectivity present in the device.
  • When the account has been logged in on a different device already. Hotmail allows users to access account on one device at one time.
  • In case user have installed the Hotmail on mobile and has changed the password on the desktop. In this situation, when user will try to access the account on mobile without updating the new password. The mobile would not give access of inbox to the user. The user has to update the new password in mobile to login to their account.
  • It is important for users to keep their Hotmail account active. If the account remains inactive for more than 8 months, it is automatically blocked by the Microsoft.  So, if you are trying to login to your account after a long time and even after entering correct details, if you are not getting access to your account, then the possibility is there that Microsoft has suspended your account.
  • To confirm this, you can send mail to your Hotmail ID from your alternate account. If your account is not active anymore, you will receive a message as revert on your mail for the same. To retain your account, you can talk to the support team of Hotmail. However, if the Microsoft would have assigned the account to someone else meanwhile, then you would never be able to access that account.

So, these are some of the common reasons, which may cause fail login attempt. To know more about it or to troubleshoot any of the issue, you can take the help of the Hotmail customer support team. Or you can also take the help of technical experts.
