Two Ways to Move From Hotmail to

Recently Microsoft has re-branded its Hotmail service as with an intention to provide users a more “user friendly” and “enriched” web mail experience. Microsoft encourage all Hotmail users to shift to the new outlook mail, however, most Hotmail users yet to accept this change, it is probably because many are still unaware of the change or lack of information about it.

To help you understand the whole things about the new webmail service and guide you to move from Hotmail to, Microsoft has published a post on the official Outlook blog recently.

In the blog post, Microsoft advise all Hotmail users (who want to use the new email) to switch directly from their Hotmail rather than creating an new account. Their current Hotmail address and all settings, such as password, contacts, signatures, etc will continue work in the new address.

Hotmail users can change their email in two ways. One is setting up a email alias inside their Hotmail account.

The other option is to rename their existing Hotmail address to one with a address. Therefore, the original address becomes an alias under the new account. That means users should still receive all emails from that account.
