Microsoft are currently phasing out Live Mail, Hotmail & others & switching over to Outlook.com. This MS website explains it further.

No new Live.com or Hotmail.com accounts are available and are not being issued - You can still receive mails sent to a pre-existing Hotmail or Live account but all accounts are in the process of conversion to accounts at Outlook.com all new microsoft accounts will be username@outlook.com for the foreseeable future

Depends on the time it has been inactive - I know that Microsoft, and all other email providers, regularly Purge unused accounts after a set period of inactivity.

The only thing you can do is to go to Outlook.com - Microsoft free personal email and try to log-in using the old account and password, (Live.com is just a redirect to outlook.com). It may allow you to gain access. If not the last chance would be to contact Microsoft and see if it's possible to restore the account, (the failure to connect to the account may actually start this communication for you )

How to create an email alias or expiring address?
Does anyone know a way to create an email alias? I sometimes need to email data to people without enabling them to contact me (they're supposed to go through a help desk). I've looked at services like 10minute mail, but they don't enable you to create and send mail, only receive it. Any ideas?
