Hotmail to be replaced with Outlook.com

Microsoft seems to have taken the first step in retiring hotmail and offering new outlook.com email addresses.

I’m sure a lot of you will read this and think, I don’t want a new email address, I’m happy with my current email address.

The reason why I think you might want to change is if you act quickly you can get a decent email address, which used to be a big problem with hotmail addresses.

Also this might have some use with windows 8 and tablets.

It looks like hotmail could be replaced by outlook.com so you can’t avoid it.

If you have an existing hotmail account it can be incorporated into your new hotmail address, either by just having the emails in the main inbox or creating a new folder for you.

here is how to do it
