I just tried logging in to my hotmail account and found that all my messages had been deleted. I used search engines to find out about this problem and found this page: http://www.tomrafteryit.net/microsoft-hotmail-you-suck/
which describes the same thing that happened to me. My first account was with hotmail, but then I got a yahoo account and started using it more because of more storage, so I stopped using the hotmail as frequently. Now I come to find that Microsoft deletes all accounts that haven't been logged into w/in 30 days. Plus the account size is now down to 2MB from 250MB. I believe Yahoo's policy is to delete accounts without a login after 4 months.
I just thought people should be aware of this. Anybody else had this happen to them?
