  1. someone got into my hotmail account reciently and changed my password allowing them to also set a secondary email address for resetting my password. i now have my email address back and im wondering how i can change the secondary email address. ive tried changing the password and the secret question and answer and neither have asked me about setting a new secondary email address.

    Click the "Help" link at the log in page and then click on the "Contact us" link. See if they will help you to reset. They should be able to.
