Microsoft Hotmail has been a great webmail provider for many years, but did you know you do not have to have the basic @hotmail.com, in fact, you can get both @live.com and the new @outlook.com. I will show you how.
First I must say I have had Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, and Gmail over the years and Microsoft’s new Outlook.com is my favorite. It is full-featured, easy to use, and looks great.
Now getting an @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @outlook.com is easy just go the Microsoft Account Sign Up Page and sign up normally but when you get down to where you need to type in the Hotmail address you want you will see that to the right is a drop down menu (shown below) that says outlook.com, click on it and you will see Live.com and Hotmail.com instead. Simply choose the one you want Hotmail, Live, or Outlook, and finish the sign-up form.
But what about @msn.com well there was a different form but as of now the page is no longer active. Looks like we can not sign up for new @msn.com email addresses anymore which is fine since we can sign up for @outlook.com, @Hotmail.com, or @live.com. Below is a picture of the old @msn.com sign up page.
I think the @outlook.com email address looks more professional given the long history of the Outlook software with email. I have changed my professional email addresses to Outlook.com. I hope you find the email address you are looking for, I know I have.
