Welcome loughneagh, I suppose you could write your letter in word and send it as an attachment...

there is a tip in the link that will increase the size of your account as well...

Write your email in Notepad, select the whole thing (Ctrl+A) and paste into Hotmail. I just did that with an 18000 character text file, many more than 22 lines.

Hi loughneagh

I don't quite understand why you can only type 22 lines of text - you mention that you run out of space. Your basic allocation in Hotmail for your mail is 1024MB which is enough for hundreds of lines. Presumably you realise that you are not restricted by the size of the email box - as you type it will expand to accomodate your text and introduce scroll bars where necessary.

Sea Urchin is right

I just gave up after 46 lines.

As has been suggested write your copy on a Word Processor and then use the "Attach > File" function

There may be two reasons here, 1) when you are viewing your message body screen, it may look as though you can only write 22 line but in fact all you need do is keep typing as has previously been said here. 2) Go to 'Options' in your Hotmail account and change the settings for your email.

no need for using anything except your hotmail message area,dont over complicate a simple task

Hi All and thank you . I have just awoken here in Spain and will investigate all your suggestions, later.
Spain does not wake up , it only yawns.
Muchos Gratias

Thank you all.
