  John-257781 17:52 10 Feb 2003

I have set up an account with NTL.I also have an account with Hotmail which I do not use any longer. Any information how to delete this would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Sign in to your Hotmail Account,click Help,All Topics,About your Hotmail Account,and down at the bottom you'll find Close your Hotmail Account. Click through on this and follow instructions.

Might pay to consider though retaining this account solely for signing up to sites which might give rise to spam - after all it costs nothing.

Another way is to simply stop using the account. After 30 days of inactivity the account will be deactivated.

or if your using outlook express Go to tools >account > highlight the account you want rid of and click on the REMOVE button..

That'll only remove it from Outlook though won't it, it won't close the account.

I keep my Hotmail for junk and as sign-in names. I also get the occasional email from people who ignore the fact I've got another account and email Hotmail anyway.

quite correct also stops the machine from collecting the mail so it lays dormant till expiry ..
