Hotmail/Outlook Mail Account Login (@hotmail/@outlook)
You can easily access your Hotmail/Outlook mailbox with any internet browser. Use a browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox on your computer/notebook or use the browser on your smartphone (all smartphones have a pre-installed browser!). The connection to Microsoft Hotmail servers is always protected by an SSL connection, and all your emails and other data are transmitted securely and protected.
Since 2013, Hotmail.com and Outlook.com both belong to Microsoft; access to the service is still possible through all known domains. This login works for Hotmail, Outlook, OneDrive, MSN and Live.com.
Accessing your @Hotmail.com mailbox with a browser is the easiest way to get into your email account. The mobile websites for smartphones/tablets are very suitable for use on the go thanks to their focus on mobile usage with responsive design. You can also access and synchronize your Hotmail/Outlook mailbox with apps for smartphones: The official version of the Hotmail/Outlook app for Microsoft Windows Phone is available in the Microsoft Store: Outlook.com for Windows Phone App. Here is the official iPhone Outlook.com app on iTunes, and the official Android version is available here in the Google Play Store.
You can also access your @Outlook.com mailbox with desktop software such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook on your PC or notebook and synchronize your emails.
Hotmail.com/Outlook.com Login - Step by Step
1Go to Hotmail/Outlook.com homepageGo to the Hotmail/Outlook homepage: You can either enter https://www.outlook.com, or the old name Hotmail.com https://www.hotmail.com in your browser.
Since both services belong to Microsoft (since 2013), you will always be automatically redirected to http://login.live.com after entering the address.
At the beginning of the internet address, "https" should be visible - this confirms the use of an SSL connection and increases the privacy and security of your emails and files: From now on, all content will be transmitted SSL encrypted. Then enter your login information for your Hotmail/Outlook mailbox on http://login.live.com.
2Enter your Hotmail/Outlook email addressOn the following page, enter your login details for your Hotmail/Outlook mailbox. Regardless of whether your email address is @Outlook.com or @Hotmail.com, you can log in to all your Microsoft mailboxes using this page (i.e. @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, @live.com, etc.). Enter your Hotmail/Outlook email address in the first field "Email address". If your email address was created at Outlook.com, simply enter email@example.com. Now go to the next text field to enter your password. Simply click on it with your mouse or press the tab key once.
3Enter your Hotmail/Outlook passwordNow enter your Hotmail/Outlook password in the second input field "Password". Pay attention to accidental typos due to uppercase and lowercase letters or special characters. Do not let anyone watch you enter your email password. Never give your email password to other/strange persons. With the small checkbox "Keep me signed in", you can specify whether you want to stay signed in permanently - so you don't have to enter your password every time, but the disadvantage is that your password is stored in the browser of your computer/smartphone.

- for Outlook.com, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org
