Check a Hotmail account using any Web browser at www.Outlook.com. It is also possible to access Hotmail through www.Hotmail.com, as both domains redirect to the same page.
Once on the page, input the correct username and password to access a Hotmail account. The website also offers users the ability to recover lost passwords by having a reset code sent to a linked email account or phone number. Microsoft began phasing out the Hotmail brand in favor of Outlook in 2012 but still allows users to use their old Hotmail domain email addresses and create new ones as of 2014. However, the service is identical to Outlook regardless of the email's domain.
