All Hotmail accounts were closed down a long time ago, shortly after the switchover to Outlook.com

Microsoft sent all Hotmail users an email which explained how to transfer existing Hotmail messages over to Outlook.com before a certain date.

If you didn't do that it's too late now. Your Hotmail account and all messages in it have been deleted, and Hotmail no longer exists.

M$ did advise about closing down the actual Hotmail system; but did allow for the transfer of accounts into the Outlook.com system and thus allow one to use one's hotmail login etc. there... to access the Hotmail account.

When you go to outlook.com and enter your hotmail login/password - what happens?

I still use my hotmail account.

I go to hotmail.com (which redirects to mail.live.com) and use my hotmail.com login name and password.

Incidentally not too long ago another "poster" here at CN had a similar problem re' accessing his hotmail account (post the trf/switch over to outlook.com). He contacted MS support (I think it was support), explained his problem and dilemma. MS responded rather well by all accounts, and he was able to regain access and recover his emails, and still use the hotmail login etc. as many still do...
