Two Ways to Move From Hotmail to Outlook.com

Recently Microsoft has re-branded its Hotmail service as Outlook.com 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 Outlook.com and guide you to move from Hotmail to Outlook.com, 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 @outlook.com email) to switch directly from their Hotmail rather than creating an new Outlook.com account. Their current Hotmail address and all settings, such as password, contacts, signatures, etc will continue work in the new Outlook.com address.

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

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