Outlook.com Made A Bit Clearer

Microsoft has provided some details on the hows, whys and wherefores of transitioning from an existing Hotmail account to an Outlook.com account, and the various options open to you. Hotmail accounts would include  @hotmail.com, @msn.com and @live.com addresses. There is also an important caveat for Windows Phone users under certain circumstances:




You can rename your account to an @outlook.com account, and when you do, your old account becomes an alias, so you'll still receive email sent to the old account.


Fair warning: Renaming is a big deal. It changes the primary name of your account, which means that you will have to immediately start signing in with the new name (same password) on all your devices, such as your phone, PC, Xbox, etc.
