  • My MSN account just disappeared a while back. I’m not locked out of my Facebook account and can’t get back in because they keep sending a code to my MSN email in which I can’t access. I need help

  • Did not work. Got to last step- no SSL and server port 25 - now stuck on "verifying". Followed instructions, but got some message from MSN that "premium account " required, even though I've had this address for years!!

  • I followed all instructions - just a reminder MSN mail changed to Outlook a long time ago, so that's how you need to add the new account, under Outlook not MSN. Thanks
