    This happened today.
    I emailed some people yesterday and put it in one of thread.

    I wonder how a free account also can be hacked!

    You probably gave them username and password in both cases? Nice

    this is what i'm thinking too, however i'm not sure which thread was that, but i guess OP didn't give out his hotmail password, but another account password which happened to be his hotmail password too, the hacker already knew the email address and after that point it doesn't require a brain surgeon to put the 2 together

    I sent some promotional emails to few people in my list. And no, I didn't provide login info to anyone.
    What I mistakenly did is logged in using a VPN which I usually don't do.
    This is where I think it got leaked.

    I'm trying to restore using phone verification.

    Next time, keep it on your home IP. Though, I do not really see your account being hacked this way, but hey, it does happen.

    I still cannot access it, password is wrong!
    I didn't change it since I started this account last year.

    Yes, I did twice. It was accepted.
    I'm waiting to see the outcome
    Thanks
