I asked on microsoft support for help to close a hotmail account. In chat I was given this link: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=523898. After a few hours trying it didn't solve the problem. I went back to microsoft support help chat and was told it would only work for outlook accounts. I was also told that this forum would provide an answer. After login to the account page of the hotmail address what do I do? Thanks.

    You don't close the email specifically you close the microsoft account.
