I want to cancel my hotmail account. It is a difficult process. It seems like Microsoft needs it for other things. I have another email through my internet provider. I don't use calendars, skype, or other things associated with Outlook.

Thanks Corday, I followed those directions. It seems that the account won't close finally for 90 days. But I did mark it for closure with your help.
I noticed even without using my outlook account at all it kept collecting every email from my other account. Quite annoying to find a thousand emails in there and have to delete them. Hopefully I will know for sure on 1/13/2020.

You must have connected the two accounts at some point for it to fetch emails from the other account.

Just keep one thing in mind, if you ever leave your current ISP (move, change services etc.) you will lose that email account. Once you cancel your Hotmail account, try to get a generic email address like one from Yahoo and sync your ISP email account with Yahoo or who ever you decide. When we moved years ago, even though I "THOUGHT" I had notified all my contacts of the change, I later found I hadn't!
