It will be listed on this site if that is the case. Otherwise it is impossible, I have had the same prob. -Brady
You can check for his/her public listing, assuming they agreed to list their profile on the hotmail site..

but in fact most people do NOT agree to share their identity information to the public. what you can do with just an email address is to verfiy its validity by sending a test message to it or adding it to MSN/Windows messenger's contact list.

hope it helps,
Few ways:

- Check their profile like andreba said the way B_Millz23 offered.
- ask the hotmail user
- be smart... if they have an emailaddy with (part of) their name in it google for that name.

What is the email address you want to look up?  If you are trying to track down a spammer, you might as well forget about it.

hehe, agree, except you are working with FBI or CIA. ;)
send them an email saying they won a life-time supply of viagra and that you need shipping details :-)
