Go to Live.com and click a Hotmail link, then a signup link. If you already have an account, you might need to log out or delete your cookies. If you want a .com address instead of a localised one, get Tor and install it, thenÂ set your proxy address to 127.0.0.1 port 8118.
I really want to get a Hotmail.com (as opposed to .co.uk) address…and your tip here seemed to be the answer for me. However, Tor doesn’t seem to want to work with 8118. (It is set to 9051 at the moment but I get an error when I try to start it with it set to 8118.) Any ideas gratefully listened to!
