Exclamation Can you delete hotmail accounts?

I have loads of old hotmail accounts that I never use and I hate having loose ends so, is there any way to delete them?

I think Hotmail accounts get deleted after a period of time. If I can remember, accounts are deactivated after a couple weeks or months of inactivity and get deleted after more months to a year... Email providers should have a link to delete accounts or something.

woot..haha go me...:|

Well now ya'll do

But its pretty simple..its a matter of finding out and looking around for the info on the msn page..

But Lac3y, when closing down the account(s) just make sure you redirect all your info/email, like if you sign up say on CF you join and you use one of your hotmail address make sure you change the options *before* you close that sorten hotmail account or else you will be kinda..well stuck..It happend to me once so you learn from experince alright

Or you could just email the tech support and ask them to close your account.
