How to recover a deleted contact in your Hotmail account?

What is hotmail.com? We will explain what it is and how it is created. To begin, Microsoft acquired an online application called Windows Live Hotmail and rebranded it as hotmail.com some years later. In those times, Windows Live Hotmail was the first free email service and included a wide range of features, such as the ability to send and receive email messages, virus scanning, very high storage, schedule calendar, and so on. Even if it was renamed, Outlook.com is just a modern version of the Windows Live Hotmail service.

A considerable number of users complained about this acquisition, but there was no reason to complain.  Why do we say so? We say this because Microsoft Corporation introduced numerous positive changes to the free email service. For instance, hotmail.com currently offers contacts lists, management tasks, a more modern calendar, the ability to associate with mobile devices, and the ability to recover deleted contacts in your email account. In the case of the latter one, we are going to explain it what it is about.
