How many times can you try to guess the secret question?
How long can you leave it before you try again?

A surprising amount of people actually have an easy answer to their question and have usually forgotten all about it so that when you ask the question in a subtle way, it'll probably not set any alarm bells off. Then all thats left to do is to change the password to one of your choosing. I usually do this for the fun of it while chatting with the person over msn. Then I tell them I hacked their account and the password and when they dont believe me I just tell them to sign out and try the new password. Not actually that hightech a hack, but the simple things usually work best.
PS-not all people will have an answer to their secret question, and if they do it might not be the one that they tell you
PPS-if at first you don't succeed try typing different spelling variations, but if you try too many times, hotmail will ban you from trying to change your password for about a day.
