    Talking Know when you created your Live email account

    We just create email ids but we forget when we created them. They are so much important for us but we canít remember on which day we will register it.

    Itís a kind of funny thing but it is important to remind it due to some security reasons also. Windows Live mail remembers this thing for you.

    you can easily come to know that when did you started your email account. To check this follow some simple steps:

    1. Login to your Windows Live account.
    2. On right hand side youíll find a link for options, click on it and select more options from there.



    3. Now from the options listed there, select View and edit your personal information from Manage your account category.



    4. In the information given there, youíll find the date when did you registered your account with Microsoft.



    PS: I just missed the second birthday of my email account, check soon if you wonít miss it yet.

    It seems you didn't create your account and just has come to know, when it was created..

    What security reasons are involved in knowing the date your Windows Live e-mail account was created?

    since your account may be used for multiple services such as Hotmail, Live Messenger, your other subscriptions, the date would be the date you created the account, regardless of which service you first used to create it. Thus, if you create the account to use Live Messenger, and then a year later start using Hotmail with the same address, the date shown would be the earlier of the two.

    So, it reminds you that when actually you've get registered.

    @corrine like if you do not use your account for long time, the account will be abandoned with in 90 days. so, if you remember the day when you have created your account then it will be easy to calculate that within how much time you have to relogin again. It's helpful for those people who don't use there account very much.

    The only thing here that I would say is that if you've not used it for a while then you'll probably not do so and if it has run out and want to start using the service again then wouldn't be as easy just to start off with another set of details.
