Windows 7: I can't reset my password in Window Live Hotmail

I can't reset my password in Window Live Hotmail

Hi Guys,
I have an annoying problem with my Window Live Hotmail (WLH) Account. I tried to sign in into my WLH account and I couldn't access it because of wrong password so I preceded to reset it but when I did this, it says basically that it sent the temporary password to my email account which is the one I can't access. I have a secondary email address with gmail but there was no option to put it so they could send it to my other address.

I also tried to go in WLH from the icon on my Pc and it asked for my password and I finaly get a message which is:

* Unable to send or receive message from the Hotmail (yannik_a) account. The operation was canceled by the user.

Server error: 0x80004004
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004004

I would appreciate any kind of help trying to figure this thing out?

Thanks in advance,


Ps: I tried later to sign in but that time, it says there was a server error: 0x80048823
