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.

Instructions

  1. 1

    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."

  2. 2

    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.

  3. 3

    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.

  4. 4

    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.
