Default how to increase Hotmail inbox size to 250MB

ncrease your existing Hotmail Account Limit to 250mb
Follow the steps..!!


Steps

=======
Login ur hotmail account and go to options.
Go to "Personal"
Click "My Profile"
Change Country to "United States"
Wait for browser to load United states settings.
Change the state to "Florida" and zip code "33332"
Click "update"
Click "Continue"
Go to "Language" and make sure its "English"
Paste this link in the same browser.
http://by17fd.bay17.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/Accountclose
Wait until the Screen says you're Hotmail is Closed
and ready to be
deleted.
Click "Close Account".
Go back to login page and relogin to ur hotmail
account..!!

Your account size will now increase to 25 MB which a
mnth later
becomes 250 mb.
Good Luck..!!

PS.It worked, however i guess the Florida thing is
simply a
diversion because new hotmail accounts are given 250
by default now.
So the trick is to actually "de-activate and
re-activate the
account" only !

You won't lose your mails and address books, believe
me..!!

Its Tried and tested and increased my mail account
limit to 25mb at present.
n joy

yeah, it worked well and the mails are intact too. But remember to activate your account at that time only, else your complete .NET Passport account will be deleted.
