How to Check Hotmail Behind a Proxy

Updated February 21, 2017

When you use a network to access the Internet, the network administrator can decide what sites you can and can't access. If the administrator doesn't want you to access your e-mail account, he can block your IP address for opening the site. However, if you use a proxy server, you can hide your IP address from the administrator's firewall, allowing you to access your e-mail account, such as Hotmail.

Launch the Internet browser on your computer, and make your way to a proxy site. Some of the proxy sites you can visit are "Proxy.org," "Proxysite.org" and "BestProxySite.com."

Type in Hotmail.com into the search bar of the proxy site. If Hotmail does not load up, try a different proxy until it appears on the screen.

Close out any advertisements that may load, and log into your e-mail account. More than likely, more advertisements will load up when you open your account.

Click "Inbox" to view all of the new messages you have in your e-mail. Once you are done, click "Sign Out" in the upper right corner of the screen.
