I logged in using my Live account, which I registered using my Gmail account. Is there anyway I can change it to @outlook without losing mails?

Correction :

What I mean it that it shows xxxxxxx@gmail.com as the address in Outlook.com. So, I need to change it to xxxxxxx@outlook.com.

I knew that yahoo supported this, but even msn supports the same. I missed that one. In this case you have to have a *******.hotmail.com like address. Gmail won't do. But it doen't matter because only the interface is changing, so you can use hotmail as usual.

Not sure. Try these steps and let us know :

1. Visit www.outlook.com
2. Log in with your xxxxx@gmail.com account.
3. You will receive an email from Outlook Team.
4. Open the Email and click on connect now. (Third from top)
5. Read Instructions and let us know if you can migrate to xxxxx@outlook.com

Desmond actually means that he'll use outlook to access hotmail to access gmail...lol....just kidding. Just wanted to know that can I use gmail id to login into hotmail? What will be the benefit?

changed to @outlook.com from @live.in

hated the country specific .in domains + outlook.com seems fancy and interface is like 10 time better..... but no opera compatibility :pullhair:

I renamed mine. Now looks fancy.

Also got an SMS from Microsoft on my mobile phone (as I have associated my cellphone number to the account) stating that my account has been renamed. :)

Few things I came across after renaming your email address with @outlook.com ---

• Email sent to your old address will still go to your account.
• Remember to always sign in with your new address; you won't be able to sign in with your old one.
• If you'd like to stop receiving mail sent to your old address, just delete that address in account services. Once you go to account services, you get an option to remove and get rid of your @Hotmail.com email address.
