Are you saying that you can't access your Hotmail email or that you can't

No, haven't got an alternate. Shall I restore the last password and see if
that works?

Tried a long password but it didn't work - changed to a shorter one and it
worked. Does WL Hotmail accept long password and WLM only shorter ones?

How long is a piece of string? From Help:
A strong password is one that's difficult for others to determine by
guessing or by using automated programs. A strong password is an
important first step in protecting your personal information. A
strong password:

* Contains seven to sixteen characters.
* Uses three of the following four types of characters:
Uppercase letters (A, B, C).
Lowercase letters (a, b, c).
Numerals (1, 2, 3).
Special characters (` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = { } | [ ] \
: " ; ' < > ? , . /) .
Isn't a common word or name, or a close variation on a common
word or name.

Your password can't contain:
* Spaces or non-English characters.
* The portion of your e-mail address before the @ symbol.
* Your question or secret answer.

Notes
Passwords are case sensitive.

Then the original attempt failed.
Looks like you adjusted your approach and finally used an acceptable string(length and characters)
